Historical Road
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.
