Streets of Takehara, Takehara

4.3
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Takehara
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.

  • This is the town was used as the filming location for NHK morning drama "IM". Taketsuru pure malt aged sake (Kameyama brewing in the drama). So im not looking picture was took by chance. You can go in a 10-minute walk from takehara station. Ask at the tourist information map. I'd stop by there way station before entering the town from going.

  • From takehara station, it takes more than 10 minutes. If you have more time for trains and buses, walk might be good at. However, like a souvenir shop, food and beverage outlets is feeling quietly enjoy too much without the old town. Has been seen publicly, but there is also the birthplace of the founder of the Nikka whisky is not.
