Important traditional buildings preservation district of the country with a calm atmosphere
Takehara is called Little Kyoto in Aki because of its history of prospering as a villa of Kyoto Shimogammo Shrine during the Heian period. The symbol of this is the townscape preservation district, which has been selected as an important traditional buildings preservation district in a country with a calm atmosphere. During the Edo period, when it developed dramatically as a salt-making area, it produced many excellent scholars such as Rai Shunsui, Harukaze, and Rai Kyohei's brothers, and Rai Sanyo and others against the backdrop of abundant economic power. The profound houses created by the salt pans and the prosperity of the tradesman culture still convey their appearance to this day.
