Kiragawa Historic Streets (吉良川の町並み)

4.0

Traditional Streets/Houses

Kiragawa-cho, Muroto City is a neighborhood that has retained its Meiji era townscape. Lined with merchant houses, storehouses, and other period buildings, it was the first district in Kochi Prefecture to be designated as a National Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings. The district is notable for its plaster walls, “mizukiri” drainage tiles, and its “ishiguro,” stone masonry outer walls built to protect homes from typhoons.

Review of Streets in Kiragawa-town

Reviewed:2017/06/27 Interesting little town with houses full of character
In comparison with other old towns, Kiragawa is a small village.
Nonetheless, there is a certain atmosphere here which we liked very much.
We were there on a quiet morning. It was very peaceful...

自転車で室戸岬にいったときに、道の駅で近くに古い町並みがあると知ってうかがいました。
お遍路宿やお洒落な料理屋さんもあって良い町並みでした。
またゆっくり訪れたいです。

          The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
