A characteristics of Kawagoe kurazukuri buildings is to use a tall box ridge （Hakomune） and an ogre-formed roof tile （Oni-Gawara） with a very thick coat of plaster over a real Oni-Gawara to show off （Kagemori）. These buildings create a dignified and imposing appearence.
2 Yamazaki House
The Yamazaki House （Mochi Kameya）, which was built in 1868 as a typical Dozo-style townhouse in Kawagoe.
3 Hara house
The most prominent kurazukuri house is the Hara house which was built by a kimono merchant, Heibei Yamamoto in May 1868 just after the great fire.In addition, the Kannon door on the front side of Choki-in Temple, like Yamazaki Mochi Kameya, re-engages when the adjacent doors open, giving a strong sense of the plasterer’s skill and spirit.
