Ajimu Architectural Designs on Plaster Walls is consisted of a number of traditional residential and commercial buildings with unique and visually entertaining three-dimensional plaster wall artworks. The designs including the colorful paint and the well-defined grooves and indentions are all created by use of a trowel. This type of construction became widely popular in and around Ajimu in the early Meiji period. Currently about 70 of them still remain here today.
The meaning hidden behind each artwork is vast - symbolisms for bringing fortune to the family, repelling evil, fertility, and even some humorous ones as well.
