This storehouse for rice was built in 1893.
Bringing the history of Sakata, a bustling rice shipping port, into the present. The wisdom of the people of old lives on in this cool storehouse; they took advantage of the natural world, planting elm trees behind the building in order to mitigate high temperatures in the summer etc. The storehouse is still used to store agricultural products today.
