Tawaraya Kyoto |Ryokan|

Passing the outside of Tawaraya you can see the panels are restored to new. These are incredible wooden vertical slats /no wider than 5cm/ and are hand chiseled and connected by joinery without the use of nails. While most people would simple pass by and wouldn’t see it, the quality of Tawaraya’s exterior speaks for itself!
