Kawara-machi Tsumairi Merchant Houses

It is the text from here.

Kawaramachi Tsumairi Mercantile House District is an area where numerous traditional Japanese mercantile houses remain. Tsumairi house design is typified by a narrow entrance and long extension from front to back. The long, narrow construction of these houses are called "eel’s crib". This cluster of mercantile houses, strung out along a street 600m long, seems to take you back to the days when Samurai lived here. The street is dotted with charming souvenir shops and cafés, where you can enjoy strolling and shopping.
