    Kyoto Maidurushi Kitasui 1039-2
    A historic site located a 10-minute walk from JR Higashi-Maizuru Station. This collection of 12 red brick buildings served as an ordinance warehouse for the former Japanese Navy from the Meiji through the Taisho period; eight of these buildings have been designated Important Cultural Properties. In order to make use of these structures, the site was opened up as a sightseeing and exchange facility by Maizuru City in 2012. Today, it is open to the general public as an event hall and museum with exhibits on the history of the former Japanese Navy. There is also a sightseeing cruise facility and a restaurant which serves the same curry as is enjoyed by the modern day Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force.

    It was 4:30pm when we arrived the museum. Glad we bought the tickets (300 yen) as the exhibits are fascinating. Worth to visit.

    Kyoto Maizuru-shi Hama 601
    This bakery is about ten minutes' walk from Higashi Maizuru Station in the relaxed atmosphere of Higashi Maizuru Shopping street. They have a huge array of products, from white bread loafs to snack breads, headed up by their Nikujaga Bun with beef, potatoes and konjac noodle, which is endorsed by the Maizuru Tourist Association. Maizuru was the location of the only Naval base on the Sea of Japan side of the country. Those sailors brought back the unforgettable flavor of the beef stew they'd eaten in the United Kingdom, and in the pursuit of that flavor this town became the home of Japan's Nikujaga, a stew of beef and potatoes flavored with soy sauce, sugar, and sesame. The Nikujaga Buns baked every morning are a local flavor you won't find anywhere else.

    Kyoto Maizuru-shi Kitasui 1039-12 Maizuru Red Brick Park
    This is the Building 3 of the collection of red brick buildings of the Maizuru Brick Park, highly valued as national Important Cultural Assets. The buildings were built from the Meiji into the Taisho periods. This building was built as a warehouse for the former Imperial Navy in 1902 and used to store munitions and small arms until after the war. After World War II, it was used by a private warehousing company. The tile roof and wood-framed windows have been restored as per the original plans. In 2007, it was reopened as a place to encourage education, and now it has shops selling souvenirs of Maizuru and the surrounding area, as well as hosting exhibitions regarding the former Imperial Navy.

    いくつかある赤れんがの棟のなかではいちばん見応えがあるのではという館です。1Fにはおみやげ、2Fには海軍の施設として使われていたころの資料などが展示されています。船(軍艦)の進水式記念絵ハガキコーナーのようなものがデザインがその船それぞれ違っていて興味深かったです。

  • Shimashichi
    Shopping
    Kyoto Maizuru-shi Kitatanabe 118-21
    This shop makes and sells its own kamaboko fish cake, made using the meat of fish that aren't so commonly used these days, like silverthroat or lizardfish. This old-fashioned kamaboko is made by skilled craftsmen with natural sea salt to bring out all the rich flavor of the fish, and locals love it as their home-town kamaboko. This fish cake is filled with savory fish flavor and very little sweetness, so it's perfect to go with sake or shochu. They also have seasonal and limited versions, like Maizuru Kani Monogatari, made on a crab shell, or the fluffy, broth flavored Oden-yo Shinjo for winter's oden hotpot.

Kyoto Areas

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
