Nice to quickly walkthrough. Can visit the whole area in 15min, 30 min if you check out both small gardens and 1 souvenir shop (which is very expensive). Walls are nice compared to kyote which looks newer compared to this. Include it in your castle...More
Narrow lanes snaking around fantastic, well-preserved houses. Suggest a start outside Godburger on the Northern stream/canal (?). Wander westwards towards the other stream and try to find Casa Nomura. Then head down for the crafts on display, especially upstairs, at Shinise Memorial Hall/Museum.
This is a busy area of old buildings, lots of people -many in Kimonos, and some interesting shops. Interesting to see the old buildings used as shops and restaurants. The gold shop is for those with lots in their wallets!
