Important Cultural Properties Preservation Area Merchant Town Sawara Sawara was originally a farming village in the territory of Katori Shrine, one of Japan's top three imperial Shinto shrines of the time. From around 600 years ago, merchant town and commercial districts began to crop up along Ono River. It developed into a major inland port, as a point where the water transport of Tohoku crossed over with that of Edo (old Tokyo), when Ono River and Tone River were connected under the orders of Tokugawa Ieyasu in the Edo Period. The buildings along the Ono River are now designated as Important Cultural Properties. Sawara retains the effects of the culture from those times, and their festival that dates back to the Edo Period is registered as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. NIPPONIA - An experience that allows you to immerse yourself in the rich local culture and history NIPPONIA takes old Japanese houses around the country and renovates them while retaining their historical features. They transform the buildings into accommodation overflowing with culture and history.Read moreClose
