House where we endure severe winter cold of farmer-soldier who settled in Sapporo for the first time, and live life is remembered vigorously

Farmer-soldier settled in here Kotoni farmer-soldier village for the first time in Sapporo in 1874 (Meiji 7). We collected the headquarters facility and central facilities such as schools in the south side (per current Nishi Ward Office, Kotoni Shinto shrine), and 208 soldiers shop was built in the whole area where we caught current Kotoni Sakaechodori of the north side in. By observing Kotoni Tondenhei Barracks, soldier shop trace in addition, can feel the reclamation period of Meiji of Hokkaido.

We repaired in 1972 (Showa 47), and this building was restored in place identical to place where the 133rd guard shop at the time of the settlement was built. There is style not to be seen in earthen floor, hearth, tatami mat without relationship, house of Hokkaido including sliding door, and big difference is seen in making including masa bukino roof, Toilet established outdoors with today's house.
