This architecture is the inside of an old house in along the Mito highway(116㎞). The Mito highway had connected present Senju, Adachi-ku Yokyo and Mito, Ibaraki at the Edo period（1603–1868）. And, there was calling as headquarters the house which the daimyo(feudal lord) stayed and rested on the way. This Someno family is working the headman of village of the Toride district from generation to generation, was specified as headquarters from the Mito Tokugawa family in 1687, and this house was built in 1795. Not only the local lord of the Mito Tokugawa family but other daimyos and high-ranking samurai who go the Mito highway back and forth used this house for headquarters. This photograph is taken towards the direction of the entrance door from living room. When seeing in detail, large-boned wood was constructed by the floor and the ceiling. The shoji(sliding door) covered in paper to the lattice-like wooden framework is given to between straw-matted of living room.

A superbly taken photo indoor's the old typical wooden house, Mikio.
Technical details all culminate here to a fine ambiance of old times, clarity and depth, light and the backlight superbly handled.
Have a nice new week,

This is a wonderful capture of the interior of a traditional Japanese house.
Its different rooms are clearly presented in an attractive composition.
Good light management.
In the workshop we can enjoy the special shape of its roof.
Best regards, Paul

This is an interesting interior of a kind I have seen in so many Japanese movies. The sliding doors are shown very nicely on a diagonal and you have used the light coming from two directions, and from the lamp, very well.

A well composed picture with all these straight lines and rectangles, like a painting by Piet Mondrian. Inside this composition you have included the couple sitting there, a very pleasant contrast to the hard lines around them.

This is the kind of architecture I see only in James Bond movies. I like the different rectangular shapes and the placement of the people at a sweet spot.
