Modern silkworm house was specially built to control its inner temperature, humidity, daylight, and fresh air to meet the delicate condition of the silkworm rearing in Meiji Period.<br> This study is based on more than 2,500 sericultural books published in Meiji Period. These tutorial books have detailed explanation of architectural elements, but have never been analyzed. The purpose of this study is to clarify the mechanism and its elements through the analyzation of the sericultural books in relation with two ways to rear the silkworms, cool rearing and warm rearing.
