    はわい温泉に宿泊した翌朝立ち寄りました。 雑技団の公演があるのでそれに合わせてゆきましたが、朝一番はお客さん少なめでした。 庭園もきれいにされており、東郷湖を挟んで眺めるはわい温泉・・というのもよかったです。

    Tottori Pref. Kurayoshishi Shinmachi Around
    "Shirakabe traditional warehouse district of Kurayoshi City is located around 40 minutes' drive from either the Yubara Interchange or the Hiruzen Interchange of the Yonago Expressway. Known as ""Little Kyoto"" because of its elegant appearance, the warehouse district has traditional white-walled warehouse buildings and stone bridges crossing the Tamagawa River that flows through the city, creating a magical retro atmosphere; this is one of the most Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings. Most of the warehouse buildings-which combine black walls made from burnt cedar wood with white wall plaster and red Sesshu tiled roofs-were built in the Edo period (1603-1868) or the Meiji period (1868-1912). Several of the warehouses have been refurbished inside, such as Akagawara Ichigokan (which now houses several first-rate shops selling local specialty products); others are now used as cafes, art galleries, etc."

    昔からある白壁の町並みは生活用水としての用水路が流れています。 昔ながらの町並みですが、新しいお店もあり倉吉の観光名所。 車で行く際、駐車場がすぐに埋ってしまいます。 少し歩くけど市役所の駐車場が開放されているのでここでも大丈夫です。 人気の「白壁倶楽部」はレトロな作りでとても素敵です。 ランチで伺いました。時間をずらさないと待ちます。 洋食で、だいたい1300円くらいです。 お子様ランチもある...

    Tottori Tottori-shi Kawaharacho Tanihitotsugi 1011
    This tourist information center was opened in 1994 to serve as a local symbol as part of an area revitalization project. The reconstructed castle is built on the site where Toyotomi Hideyoshi placed his encampment during the subjugation of Inaba Province in 1580. Divided into three levels inside, the facility presents the history, culture, and plant and animal life of Tottori City’s Kawahara-cho. From the terrace observatory on top of the castle, visitors can get a sweeping view of the area’s seasonally changing scenery and, on clear days, see all the way to the Tottori Sand Dunes and the mountains of Chugoku. There are some 800 plum trees planted around the castle and in early spring many tourists come here to see their beautiful blossoms.

    Last year when I was traveling to Tottori city on JR (around Kawahara station), I saw, on a hill, this castle. Since then, I was so curious about it and decided to visit it this year. A few days ago...

  • Chizu-shuku
    Travel / Tourism
    Tottori Yazu-gun Chizucho Chizu
    A post town on the old Chizu Orai highway, an important road connecting the Kinai and Inaba regions starting in the Nara period. When the daimyo (federal lords) were required to go to Edo during the Edo period under a policy of the Tokugawa Shogunate, this would be the first post town reached in the Tottori Domain. It had a tea shop, magistrate's office, and an official noticeboard. Machiya townhouses and signposts have been preserved that bring you back to another time. It's dotted with nationally designated Important Cultural Properties and Registered Tangible Cultural Properties, including the Ishitani Residence on a roughly 11,800-squre meter site with a Japanese garden, and the Shioyademise, a traditional merchant's townhouse with wonderful Japanese architecture.
