The reason why is very simple. Carpenters renovated this house.

 

 

But it is OK to say that this renovate is no longer Revive.

It’s really difficult thing. Perhaps you may think Japanese carpenter can renovate Japanese Traditional house.

 

But in temporary Japan, there are few carpenters who can deal with traditional house.

And this house’s broken condition was considerably terrible.

The ancestor of this house’s owner was wealthy farmer of this area.

So even in 140 years ago, he could build and keep this big house.
