Time slip in the Edo period! Japan Heritage Mitarai Townscape

Mitarai, which prospered as a port town waiting for the wind and tide during the Edo period, was selected by the national government as an important traditional buildings preservation district in 1994. Mitarai, which has been reclaimed several times due to the small land area, is a mixture of large and small merchant houses, teahouses, boat lodgings, houses, shrines, temples, etc. It goes around like this. In addition, there are some civil engineering structures such as large shores, stone bridges, high lanterns, stone wall revetments, and ganki that are necessary for the life of the port town. Since the Mitarai district was formed in the middle of the 17th century, it has developed according to the times as a relay port for Seto Inland Sea traffic until the early Showa period, about 200 years after the Edo period, and its traces are still in the village. It is kept in. In addition, a local tourist volunteer guide will guide you through history and culture in an easy-to-understand manner.
