Sankyo Warehouse

What do you think these lined wooden buildings are? They look old-fashioned but elegance in the air, don’t they? These charming buildings are called Sankyo Souko(山居倉庫) which is warehouse established in 1893 in Sakata city, Yamagata prefecture to keep tons of rice.

Sankyo warehouse was built as attached warehouse of Sakata rice exchange place, and still used as agricultural warehouse now. The roofs of 12 buildings are dual structures, besides they prevent moisture so that not rice goes damp.

These massive keyaki trees have fresh green leaves in summer and they work on rice also to prevent rice from strong sunshine and wind.

This displayed boat was used to carry rice that were planted and harvested in Yamagata to Edo (Tokyo) or other prefectures that have less rice fields or farmers.

Sadly, the weather was not good when I visited there, so these photos look not nice. However, it is really clean and refreshing place especially in summer. There are some places inside warehouse that you can learn more about Sankyo Souko history, and souvenir stores. It openes from 9 am to 6 pm for free.

Interesting story. It's nice that theses old building are still in place and still doing there first task.
Here, most old industrial building are destructed. Others are now given a new life, but for some different tasks.

Sure, with sun the photo looks better, but overcast clouds give good building photos, well lit and without harsh shadow.
