This is the area once was occupied by ship builders, the traditional tiny houses with narrow alley survived from 17th century till now. A quick stop for an hour or so is nice detour.

Well preserved or rebuilt village from Edo period. Too bad it's a bit far from Ogi port and not easy to access without a car, even by bicycle. You can do it by bus but check the schedules... Or hitch-hike.

Splendid narrow streets and traditional cemeteries. It was a pleasure to walk through this village. Few people today since it was quite rainy but it made the visit more calm.

The village was preserveda to show you how people live in the past. Each house has a story and some even have strange shape like triangle.
