Streets of Takehara, Takehara

(3.8/5 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.

  • An hour's drive of Hiroshima, this small town has retained a former appearance that roam the streets of downtown in Nice weather is really interesting. This visit will last between one and two hours, you'll take lots of pictures of old Japanese houses and you will finish by a temple slightly above the city. Restaurants and car parks are nearby. Do not hesitate to come if you are motorized.
