Ochiai-Shuraku
The Essential
In the east of Iya valley, the hamlet of Ochiai clings to the mountainside, flanked by terraces of rice and tobacco crops. It was probably founded in the Middle Ages by the former samurai-turned-peasant of the Taira Clan. Most of the houses date from the Edo period. A project is underway to gradually restore the old thatched roofs of fifty of these houses.
