Izushi Castle Town, Toyooka

4.0
#2 of 15 in Historic Sites in Toyooka
Often called Little Kyoto, Izushi Castle Town draws visitors with its nostalgic atmosphere and Izushi-soba, a specialty of the area containing buckwheat noodles served on small plates. The site features historical buildings from the Meiji Era, including a castle, a clock tower, and an old theater playhouse. The small but well-preserved castle sits on a hill encircled by sakura trees, offering views of the surrounding landscape. Climb the stone staircase farther up the hill to visit a Shinto shrine. Put Izushi Castle Town into our Toyooka trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • There is an old-fashioned house in this place. Many of them have soba signs, and if you don't focus on them in advance, you'll get lost. What I enjoy at the soba shop here is that if you eat 20 dishes, you can get a bill made of wood. It costs only that much, but please try it because it is considerably easy. Because there is a shop which i do not do, please examine it.

  • Soba is famous for its daishi, but there are also eirakukan and art museums, and when you walk the streets themselves, you'll feel the atmosphere.
