Echizen stone, the main street is paved with tuff brought from the surrounding coast. This area prospered as a port of call for Kitamaebune ships. We recommend visiting after visiting Miho Shrine for its nostalgic atmosphere.

Although it was raining, the blue cobblestone street had a nice atmosphere. There were many quaint shops, and it was fun just walking around looking around. I would like to come again when the store is empty.

The cobblestone streetscape has a nostalgic feel and is one of the top 100 historical and cultural assets of a fishing village that we want to preserve for the future. I visited on a Thursday, and many of the shops were closed on holidays, so it wasn't very lively, but it was a good time for sightseeing.

In 2006, it was recognized as one of the ``100 Best Historical and Cultural Properties of Fishing Villages to Preserve for the Future.'' Mihonoseki was a prosperous town in front of Miho Shrine. The stone-paved street from Miho Shrine to Butsukoku-dera Temple is the remains of a pilgrimage route from the Edo period. Pass through the torii gate of Miho Shrine, turn right, enter the stone-paved street, go about 150m, turn left and go 100m to reach Butsukokuji Temple. Echizen stone is used for the street in front of the shrine, and the main street is paved with tuff brought from the surrounding coast. They come in a variety of shapes, from near-square to rectangular, and there are even large paving stones measuring 80cm square. It was constructed in the late Edo period, from the Bunka era to the Koka era (1804-1847). This area prospered as a port of call on the westbound route of the Kitamaebune ship from the middle of the Edo period, and is said to have been home to around 50 shipping wholesalers. Local seastone was cut out and laid as pavement to make loading and unloading of supplies more efficient. The old townscape and cobblestone streets that retain the vestiges of those days create a calm atmosphere. This blue cobblestone street used to be the main street, and was once crowded with inns and souvenir shops catering to worshipers. Many writers and artists have visited Mihonoseki, and in 2006, six monuments of poems and poems were erected based on the poems and poems they left behind.

I realize it's my fault for coming on a rainy weekday, but EVERYTHING was closed.
