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.

 

The funaya of Ine

The unique Ine buildings which have existed since the 1700s were at first storage houses for wooden boats built for hanging up fishing nets. The current funaya were repaired along with the change of the times, the first floor is a combined boat garage and workspace for fishermen, and the second floor is used as a living area. Even now 230 houses stand in a row along the 5km length of the bay. The first funaya that were built were thatched roof wooden houses without a living space on the second floor, created to function as boathouses. At present, most funaya are wooden 2 floor buildings, and the second floor room is used as a guest room, or as living quarters for younger generation family members. There are also funaya which have been renovated as accommodation. The main houses are often found on the mountain side across the road, and this is where the everyday lifestyle is based. In addition to being in co-existence with the sea, Funaya also fulfill functional roles, and can be used for preparation of fish for cooking, making dried fish, and for carrying out fishing work activities while sheltering from wind and rain.
