I watch west inaba area

Kano castle town

Place for hitching horses stone, cow filler stone

Kano traffic goes along the center of the castle town. A cow filler stone and a place for hitching horses stone still remain on the main street which a stand of the Kano festival goes along. There are seven things said to that it was installed for the affairs of a feudal clan era, and it is indicated in those days now to have been the ground of the strategic point of traffic, the commerce in a center of Inaba, Hoki.

Step oriental lamp (step oriental lamp)

There is a step oriental lamp made with a stone at the important points of the castle town, and a town crest of each castle town installed each is ticked away.
When it is night, the light of the oriental lamp named the ream lights up the step, and a street can see taste of the castle town which is different from the noon. 

Kyoto-style fine lattice (the carpenter technology who came from Kyoto)

Because a carpenter specializing in building shrines and temples avoids war for Onin War (the 1460s) from the Kyoto Yamashiro district, the carpenter technology of Kano is said to be it when it reached it in an opportunity to have come for shikanocho. When the affairs of a feudal clan era begins, I am said to have acted as a carpenter brain of west Inaba. In the old building staying in a town, things of the Meiji era are often found from last years of Edo era. "A Kyoto-style fine lattice" is left a lot in the building, and the structure is built in "the tree composing type" without the nail. The descendant of the carpenter specializing in building shrines and temples still names a name called "Yamashiro-ya" it.


I color it, and, as for "the pinwheel," Kano castle town is handcrafted one carefully each. A pastime that gives poetic charm to Kano healing a heart of the which displays a lattice door, and waits for "the pinwheel", and is performed a walk of. In addition, I read and wait happily and walk and am done as each has senryu and?


The tile which "a name" was written under the eaves of houses of the shikanocho is put. The names of approximately 160 include things expressing an occupation and hometown and can learn the history of the shikanocho.

The waterway which continues flowing for 400 years

A waterway made by Kano lord of a castle Korenori Kamei streams down length and breadth inexhaustibility in a town. The water intake draws it from an east Mizutani River, the west Kawachi River and continues still drifting as those days. 
Because I washed dyed goods by water in the district called Konnyacho, a water hole having low one step remains to houses.

Sumo wrestler mound

There was a custom to build such a mound at the entrance of the village so that the native place village of the sumo wrestler who gained fame by sumo had you protect a village from evils after the power of the sumo wrestler in old days.
In the sumo wrestler mound, it is built several places in the village in the shikanocho.

190 kinds of lotuses of the shikanocho 

In the shikanocho, you can see the lotus in the place where "an edge of the eaves of houses" or "the pool of the lotus" vary.
I am brought up in shikanocho carefully at 2008, Professor Tanabe acceptance, the present of the Tottori University department of agriculture. (in full bloom: for the late June and mid-August in)

Kano Castle trace park

For the age of civil strife, a feature at the time remains to a stone of the top and the stone wall of an inner moat, the outer moat with a castle trace of Prince Kamei 玆 quadrature.
Approximately 500 Yoshino cherry trees are planted and are got close as a famous spot of cherry tree. I am lighted up, and a cherry tree reflected in a cherry tree and the surface of the water of the both ends of the moat creates fantastic scenery at night.

Shikanocho (other than castle town)

Kano dislocation

It is Kano dislocation that a gap of the ground appeared on the surface of the earth in the case of Tottori Univ. earthquake disaster in 1943 (Showa 18). This waterway is appointed to a natural monument of Tottori as the prefecture only place that can confirm a gap of the Kano dislocation definitely.

Senryu way

Because shikanocho became the venue of the senryu at nation school festival Tottori meeting of 2002 in the senryu way, it was grown. Dozens of phrase trees are put up from the site of castle to Kano Elementary School, and it is number one in Japan, and, as for the senryu which shined, the thing chosen as an excellence phrase at a meeting in the town block to a phrase stone is written to the phrase tree.

Originally I moved a temple (as for the name goosanhotsukiji) which was in the Old Hotokedani district to the current ground and named yuzuridenji and established it with a family temple. The temple encountered a fire twice, and the present main hall of a Buddhist temple was completed in 1928 (Showa 3). It is a temple having protection cultural assets and the town designated cultural assets of the prefecture.

In the foundation generation, I was missing, but was done veneration for a long time originally in a middle shrine of kachiyashinsha. I enshrined susanoonomikoto and was worshiped as a guardian angel of the Kano Castle in the days of Kamei 玆 quadrature Zaicheng. The scale of the main shrine is the elaborateness that structure and the sculpture of s of the small thing do not look at the example in the neighboring villages.

The House of Sanko

Three Buddha statues are found in the bottom of a river of Kawabuchi (the current Kamimachi north side) in 1588 (Tensho 16), and this is called the House of Sanko because Prince 玆 quadrature let you worship him.
