kb450-20181023-0239.jpg

On the east coast of Tango Peninsula in northern Kyoto Prefecture is Ine, a picturesque fishing village right on the water's edge. Unique for the built-in funaya "boat garages" (舟屋) where waterfront homes keep a boat next to the water.
Ine is designated as a National Important Traditional Townscape Preservation District (重要伝統的建造物 群保存地区) and Japan's first fishing village to be so designated.
