Historical Katsuyama Town Conservation Area

Historical Katsuyama Town Conservation Area

Katsuyama is a place that flourished as a post town and castle town on the Izumo Highway.
Old-fashioned sake breweries, old houses, samurai residences, workshops with storehouses, cafes, galleries, and more are scattered about, making a pleasant atmosphere for a walk.
The old townscapes with white walls and lattice windows, designated as a townscape preservation area, remain, and the "noren" curtains at the shop entrances have become a symbol.
In addition, 700m of remnants of the Takase boat landing site continue to stand along the Asahi River, and the landscape of stone walls and white walls reminds one of the bustling old times.
Enjoy the nostalgic streetscape and atmospheric scenery.
