old streets of the Edo Period
Town is designated as an area for the preservation of traditional
buildings by the central government. About 70% of the houses
were built in the Edo Period (the 17th to 19th century). Imai
Town has been an enthusiastic promoter of the preservation
of the traditional landscape, and what we see now in Imai
Town is the fruit of their efforts in encouraging the coexistence
of the old and the new. Imai Machishu Museum (Hanairaka) displays
precious items and artifacts related to Imai Town. Depending
upon the season, the old houses of Imanishi and Toyota are
open to the public.
