Higashichaya Old Town Reviews
昔ながらの建物が多く、心が落ち着きます。 街の中にいくつか柳の木があり、写真映えします。 目立つような看板がないので、行きたいお店は事前にチェックしておくことをお勧めします。 more »There are many old-fashioned buildings, and the mind is calm. There are some willow trees in the city, and the photos are reflected. Since there is no signboard that stands out, it is recommended to check the shop you want to go to in advance.
伝統的な雰囲気の街並みの中で、世界中の人々が記念撮影をしていました。木製の格子が印象的な家並みが、秋の朝日にとても美しかったです。 more »People from all over the world took commemorative photos in the traditional atmosphere of the city. The house with an impressive wooden lattice was very beautiful in the autumn morning sun.
