STORY

Tsuwano was a castle town that developed along the Tsuwano River and is renowned for its natural beauty.
It is home to the Tsuwano Hyakkeizu (The One Hundred Landscapes of Tsuwano), an art book by a local artist that captures imagery of Edo-period Tsuwano.
The book depicts scenes and information about famous sightseeing spots, nature, traditional performing arts, customs, and daily life.
Local people have continued efforts to protect the town from development and as a result, they have succeeded in preserving its traditional atmosphere.
Visitors to Tsuwano can experience the contemporary scenery while comparing it to the depictions in the Tsuwano Hyakkeizu and imagining the scenes and lives of Edo period life.
