Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
A stroll along the river among intriguing old houses belonging to merchants and scholars in Streets of Takehara will take you straight to the Edo period. Developed as an important salt-panning area in the mid-17th century, the district once produced up to 17,000 tons (37.5 million pounds) of salt annually for Kyoto and Tokyo. Wooden facades, while walls, and tiny terraces take you back to the early modern times, where advanced architectural techniques helped build impressive houses for prosperous and industrious citizens. Visit a local brewery, also the home of a famous Japanese "sake" maker, or see mini galleries displaying bamboo crafts and ceramics.

  • Is the hometown of the IM. Taketsuru pure malt aged sake is on the effects of television on popular Harbour, currently not sake. State of conservation of the town is very nice. Around with the guides and more interested. Fish eat lunch!

  • Have a spot to walk around look at streets and historical buildings, restaurants, cozy cafes, Seto Inland Sea area in a comfortable range, just good height and variety. I visited March weekend, [Street chicks Tour] excellent adorned at each location, so not too bothered but I hate crowds were so crowded because it was the last day of dolls and old family. It is also planning to visit in March of next year, but want to visit for sometime [yearning way] or [bamboo Festival].

  • It was back in time like the streets. Just round the corner from the old signs and houses, such as can be seen. Is taught to locals, but is said that jizo-favorite that is said to happen try having a lighter feel jizo-San.
