Streets of Takehara, Takehara
(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.

  • Hiroshima has two traditional building group preservation area the one Wu Shi town Mitarai (6.9 ha) takehara (5.0 ha) is one. Pay facilities 4 to takehara (Morikawa House, Matsusaka House, House & History Museum of history and folklore) and, if you visit the four facilities all deals is "たけはら Chiku and tour tickets (¥ 600)" (however purchased 4 facilities all available dates Wed, Sat & Sun only I myself on Tuesday visited the history folk customs material Pavilion closing time was still 100-yen deals so this excursion ticket). Is paid to the takehara 4 [(respectable Morikawa House will be surprised (site: 500 square meters, floor space: 220 square meters, the garden is beautiful)] only is takehara lattice mansion with Yoshii House of only listening to look, OSE House, spring breeze Pavilion and restoration the hotel attractive appearance and unique design with, Fri, sat, day & holidays 11:30-is the perfect town to spend the weekend or the Italian restaurant is open for lunch for 15:00 but not perfect for takehara.

  • 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].
