Boregura storehouse colony


Takakura is a high-raised storehouse, built to protect the stored grains and other items from rats and/or the humidity. Yamato Village's Boregura, a colony of Takakura, is designated as a cultural property by Kagoshima Prefecture. This old-fashioned storehouse, built without any iron nails, can preserve goods longer due to its good ventilation. The structure is designed to stand against strong typhoon winds, while the entire storehouse can be folded down easily by taking out the wooden locking bars at the bottom in the event of a fire or other natural disaster.
