Located in Sawara, Katori City, Chiba Prefecture, this merchant town prospered in the boating business during the Edo period.
From the Ono River, which flows through the center, to the Tone River, and then through the Edo River, they carried goods such as rice and sake to Edo.
At that time, the culture of Edo was adopted as if it was sung as "If you want to see Edo, you should go to Sawara Sawara ~", and the image of that time still remains.
It is also famous for the fact that Tadataka Ino, who can not be removed when talking about Sahara, lived. The old home is open for free.
