Gassho-zukuri house, Tajima-ke, is now used as an exhibition hall. A long time ago, the attic of this house was used for growing silkworms. They don't grow silkworms anymore though. This is the only place focused on the growing of silkworms in the village. Info about silkworms and signs in foreign languages are available. There is a place to rest here so you can relax and take your time learning about the silkworm industry in Japan.
