  • I stopped by to Hita hotel the next morning, country traditional building group preservation area is specified mameda town. The Kusano family manor I was looking for, but major refurbishment of the Heisei era was covered in plastic sheeting. Mameda town has lined up old merchant houses of tiled roof on both sides of the line of road in the square area. The old city is maintained, was a tourist destination.

  • Many shops are closed on new year's Eve is the perfect atmosphere. There was morning mist (winters well out of it), but when it's sunny clear 10:00 was fantastic. Historic soy sauce or miso. Shops that display a lot of dolls was a sight to see. Feudal in Kyoto and Tokyo, Kansai and Kyushu local cultural heritage of the place. Mameda-machi is the other side of the station, but also of the soy sauce. Gion yamakasa Hall which is also great. Yasaka Shrine before trees have moons about 300 years of pine. Hita each hotel along the river's point was not good. It is heartless because of end-of-day spa guests of answers. Put the noboribetsu Onsen Prefecture was disappointing. It is a value-packed Hita city people are generally kind, otherwise go.

  • This is where a lot of the old traditional houses have come to expect and went by, but I feel like a tourist destination at all. No one else was so calm sometimes embarrassing watching the store. No one in the alley couldn't get a voice only, but I feel like a ghost town, even for Mr. Only one line of traditional houses and the rest of the alley around the plain rural buildings in Kyoto, because the same image can be greatly disappointed the expectations away. Personal peace, but I don't want to recommend significantly.
