The roof is covered with roof tiles unique to Ise called "Ise roof tiles", and the second floor has an outer enclosure called "overhanging south roof tiles".In addition, at the tip of the eaves on the first floor, there is a fascia of rafters called "eave escape board", which is a major factor in giving continuity to the town.

It said, "A long time ago, Susano Onomikoto, who visited this place, was rented an overnight inn by the poor but benevolent Somin Shorai. Because there is a legend that "I left behind."He raised the gate mark as proof that he was a descendant of the Sumin, and he began to pray for a disease-free life.In other words, it is a gate mark of "apotropaic magic" with a prayer for family safety.
