Ine-no Funaya(boat houses)
The closest lifestyle to the sea in Japan

"At a place approximately 130km North from the ancient city “Kyoto”, you can arrive at Japan`s roots. The northern region of Kyoto prefecture is thought to be the place in Japan where rice-growing was first introduced from mainland China, and is a region which has prospered since olden times. There are large numbers of ancient burial mounds and shrines and temples, a clear blue sea and fresh green mountains、traditional houses etc, and original scenery from Japan`s ancient times is also visible even in the present. It is a historically important region, which is indeed fitting of the name “Kyoto by the Sea”.
The town of Ine lies within this “Kyoto by the Sea” region, and is a traditional area where the closest lifestyle to the sea in Japan continues even in the present day. In the town of Ine there are unique buildings called funaya, and a lifestyle which is centred on the fishing and farming industries has been carried on since olden times. Funaya span along 5km of the south-facing Ine bay, 230 houses are currently in existence, and people are in coexistence with the sea before their eyes. The scenery of the these 230 funaya standing in a row can only be seen in the town of Ine, and an original Japanese landscape which has not been turned into a tourist attraction can be found here."
