    ... traditional open fire (this provides a rather smoky atmosphere which I'm sure the residents do not notice). The history of these houses was explained by the "national treasure" gentleman and translated by Yumi, our guide.

    ... 40 men to pull it. These days it has become impossible to find 40 men of the same height with sufficient strength to pull it, and it has been permanently retired to the Exhibition Hall. Other floats are still in use, but having wheels may require only 12 to 20 men to pull them.
