Listing Detail Tabs

This is a “28 Standard” 4Ground model with high detail and
pre-painted parts.

This is a lowland home to a Honbyakusho (literally-First Farmer) family.
This lowland Minka (vernacular built) dwelling is made from Kyoro-Gumi wooden
post-framing, with both partial plastered bamboo panels and timber boarded
panels. Internally there is the lower 'Doma' of Doza (padded earth) where
many household jobs are done, next to that is the 'Hiroma' of
'Taka-Yuka' raised timber flooring, where the family eat and sleep. There
are two doorways to the cottage, the main door being 'Shoji' panelled. On
the outside of the main door is another door, the Amado (rain/security) door.
This cottage has two Hi-en Engawa (full length verandas), one each side, both
with Naga-ita (wood planking) roofing. The cottage itself has a Buki (thatched)
Kirizuma roof, the mune-jimai (ridge cover) is the relatively common
Oki-chi.

Of the Hyakushou (Peasant Farmers), Honbyakusho were the highest rank. They
would work their own land but more usually their land was worked by Mizunomi
(water drinkers).

These farmers lived in Mura (villages) of related family groups. Mura
dwellers had to answered to their local Goshi (Country Samurai) but for the
most part their farming communities ran themselves. Honbyakusho families held
village leadership by hereditary right - they had all the say in their
village councils and assemblies.

Though Honbyakusho had the most power and say in their village they also had
the greatest tax burden. As Hyakushou they also still had a duty to fight for
their lord as his Ashigaru
