Between the end the Tokugawa Shogunate and Meiji period, it was custom for young people to stay in the inns located in various areas of the Hata District. All inns located in the area were raised floor-style single bungalows. There were hundreds of these inns established in the area but from the end of the Meiji Period until the Taisho Era, many of these inns were rebuilt as town halls or destroyed. Today, there are only four remaining inns in the Yoshina area. The Hamada style Inns have their own unique style. They are approximately 3.6m wide and have a raised floor, with a Dutch-style gable roof. The roof has a small gable which is covered with Sangawara roof tiles. Natural chestnut wood is used as pillars on the four corners to support the bungalow.
