This original district of three main streets (Ichino-machi, Nino-machi and Sanno-machi) of merchants has been immaculately preserved. Sake breweries are designated by spheres of cedar fronds hanging above their doors; some open to the public in January and early February, but year round, most just sell their brews. Day or night, photographic opportunities abound.
