Just like in the Edo period
he townscape, unchanged for over 400 years, still retains the nostalgic atmosphere of a post town. Yakage town flourished as a post town on the old Sanyo Road in the Edo period. Even today, the town still maintains the atmosphere of that time. The former residences where feudal lords used to stay, are valuable buildings designated as Important Cultural Properties.
