The Buntō style house is a part of the culture of southern Japan. Its research has begun during the so-called ‘Yashi-no- Mi’ period in 1899 and has gone through many twists and turns, but there is no established theory yet. The survey of Buntō style houses in Abō was started in 1968 by Nittō Kazuhiko and others in Chiba University as a graduation research. For this event, Mr. Nittō will present current theories about Buntō style houses in Abō, split over two lectures.
