Streets of Takehara, Takehara

(3.7/5 based on 120+ 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.

Takehara, thrived in the salt merchant and taketsuru pure malt aged sake IM's family also originally a salt industry wage was likely. Takehara's old town iraka sea views from the Temple of Yoshiaki, was really beautiful view.
