Why  Machiyas Matter?

Machiyas are traditional townhouses dating back from WWII and still stand to this day in trational communities through Japan. Machiya homes are vital apart of the Japanese history. Unfortunitly, Machiyas are now facing demolition. Due to the expansion of metropolitan areas, communities are no longer wanting homes and becoming more interested in Tokyo inspired city life and apartment lifestyle living.
