84 Sanshu Izutsu House and the Historical Hiketa Townscape Hiketa

A town that once flourished as a key port for boats sailing to the Kansai area and the Seto Inland Sea, Hiketa is home to the Hiketa Honmachi Route, a street stretching from Kamebishi-ya, an old soy sauce brewer with spectacular red and latticed namako walls, to Sanshu Izutsu House, where you can enjoy nostalgic streetscapes of a once-bustling Shikoku port town. The area is designed so visitors can enjoy everything the town of Hiketa has to offer, with guided walking tours of the old town, tours of Kamebishi Brewery, a hands-on wasanbon (Japanese sugar) molding experience, and more.
