It can be said that this kind of Japanese traditional style of housing and interior were for the high-end people in Hokkaido at the early stage of pioneering.
This Japanese traditional tea-party room was and is in the museum near the hotel we stayed in Iwanai Town. Traditionally, we Japanese have had a lifestyle to minimize the damage to the environment and the nature.
That was the virtue in the traditional tea groups and that is why the traditional Japanese house had been small and cozy. Even after finishing one's life, the houses of them were easy to break down.
