Maezawa Hamlet of Magariya |前沢曲家集落

We all have a choice in life. When the world buzz with the digital technology and speed of life, the village of ‘Maezawa Hamlet of Magaria‘ choose to follow their ancestors’ way of life, treasuring to remain basic, tranquil and simple. It is an unspoiled scenery, not much left in the world around us.

紅葉も終わりを告げる頃、南会津に「前沢曲家集落」に行ってきました。山深くに立ち並ぶ「前沢曲家集落」。12月には深い雪に覆われ、周囲の道路が閉鎖されるため、この集落は4月〜11月しか観光客を迎え入れていません。我々の行った11月半ばも丁度、集落を閉鎖した数日後でしたが集落の日常の静かな人々の暮らしを見ることができました。

Maezawa Magaria Village was said to have been established by the Aizu samurai around the 16th century, located in the Minami-Aizu area. The village is a community of thatched-roof residences, the Magaria which are the L-shaped farmhouses.

The village is open for tourists from April to November, in which the museum displays the actual architectural shape of the thatched-roof residence. We arrived few days just after the village closed it’s hospitality for visitors so be sure to check the site when visiting this Maezawa Magaria Village .

集落内には、中門造り(曲家)113棟を含む伝統的家屋が19棟あり、現在も人々の暮らしが息づいており、日本の原風景を今に残しています。
