KEY WORD :@architecture / storehouses
@
A two-story fireproof structure of the storehouse type *dozou “y‘  that contains a formal guest reception suite *zashiki À•~, in the traditional residences *shoin-zukuri ‘‰@‘¢ on the ground floor, and a storage space on the upper floor. Examples are found in the houses of farmers and merchants in various parts of northern and eastern Japan, most notably in the area of Kitakata Šì‘½•û in Fukushima prefecture. The zashikigura emerged at the end of the Edo period. Sometimes it was a freestanding structure, but sometimes it projected out from the main house *hon'ya –{‰®, in which case it might also be referred to as a *kurazashiki ‘ À•~.
