Preserved Residence of the Jochi Family

The Historic Jochi Family Residence is in the Warabyo neighborhood of the city of Ono. Jochi was the village headman in the Edo period. The residence is known to have been built in 1852 based on writing on the central pillar. It has a hip-and-gable, thatched roof construction and is the tallest home in the residential area. That height is suitable for an area that gets heavy snowfall. The dirt floor and kitchen in the front of the home are connected and arranged parallel to one another, while in the rear is the shikidai room, oie room, heya room, honzashiki sitting room, and altar room. The honzashiki is 12.5 tatami mats in size, while both the altar room and shikidai are a spacious 10 tatami mats in size. The heya and oie rooms were constructed for family use. The honzashiki and shikidai rooms are divided by wooden doors. The home has a sturdy construction with thick pillars and beams. The central pillar made of zelkova wood is about 29.6 cm thick and the upper roof crossbeam measures approximately 15.75 m. It is the largest in scale of old homes in Fukui prefecture.
