Koiwai Farm Kamimaru Cowshed Group

Shizukuishi Town

Central Iwate

Koiwai Farm has grown along with the development of dairy farming in Japan. A total of six buildings, including cowsheds and silos, that were built and used during its more than 100-year history have been designated as nationally registered tangible cultural properties. All of them were built between the end of the Meiji period and the beginning of the Showa period, and the brick silo in particular is said to be the oldest existing in Japan. In addition, there are cultural property buildings scattered every few kilometers within the grounds, which are the setting for Kenji Miyazawa's poems and fairy tales, and tours of these buildings are held every year.
