“Welcome to our Yakage town”

 During the Edo period (1603-1868), Yakage worked as a village of old style inns. A village of old style inns like Yakage played an important role for smooth transactions in those days.
  On the street of our town I wish you to imagine the scenery of hustle and bustle by more than 800 procession members staying at Yakage. On the second Sunday of every November you can even observe a reenactment of the feudal lord’s procession parade.
  Please visit our Yakage town that gives you an unique opportunity to learn first-hand Japanese history.
