The KANSAI Guide

There are a lot of spots where you can enjoy architectural beauty, such as in areas where the Japanese scenery of old remains, and museum where the building itself is like a work. Let’s also learn about specialty products of the historic Kawachi.

1. Tondabayashi Jinaimachi

Tondabayashi was a key transport point where highways cross, and prospered as the main business district in Minamikawachi. With the area having been dense with town houses from the mid- 17th century through to around the 19th century, the entire town was selected as an area for the preservation of important traditional buildings of Japan.
