GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
Japanese term or phrase:
A building that retains its original Edo Period architecture
Please could someone translate and explain this sentence, which I find unusually difficult - particulary the first bit, but if you have time the rest as well, please.
The context: an old temple in Kamakura, which survived the Great Kantou Earthquake is being described.
Explanation: full sentence: an edo period concealing old building, in which the pillars from the time of construction are still used, however, only the roof has been repaired.
meaning: except for the roof, which has been repaired, the building or the material used in this building, has not been exchanged, Therefore, everything in this building reminds of edo period.
