Mitajiri Saltpan Memorial Industrial Park (三田尻塩田記念産業公園)

4.5

Park / Green Space

Hofu, located in central region of Yamaguchi prefecture, prospered for nearly 260 years from the mid-Edo period to the 1950s as Japan's top salt producing region. They've restored a traditional Irihama-style saltpan facility in one part of the site of the salt field and you can learn how salt is made. The towering chimneys still stand over the park letting you imagine the trials and tribulations of salt production. With at least one-week prior reservation you can also experience for yourself some of the processes of making Mitajiri salt using the traditional Irihama-style manufacturing methods.

Reviewed:2020/08/23 スタッフの人が説明してくれて、わかりやすかった
入場料はかかるが、展示室をみた後で、スタッフの人が屋外の塩田再現体験施設を逐一説明してくれた。時間は展示室を含め、1時間以上かかったが、塩田による製塩法、他の製塩法との違い、長州藩との関係等、とてもよく理解できた。本当は実際に体験できれば良いが、これだけでも十分だった。以前、広島の竹原の塩田の展示施設に寄ったことがあるが、写真と説明書きと当時の道具の展示だけで、よく分からなかった。再現施設を見なが...

入場料が少しだけかかりますが、海水から塩を作る方法について、展示資料、防府三田尻での歴史を学ぶことができますよ。屋外には、昔、実際に使われていた塩田が残されているほか、伝承人の支援のもと、体験もできますよ。

          Heading west along Japan's largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you'll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we're not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
