Fukuchiyama Castle

Reviewed By Spatchski - Auckland Central, New Zealand

Positively surprised to find English speaking person working at the castle. This time I was able to get some more information about the place. Mind you this is small city so not many people speak English. Don't forget to take a pic in Samurai hat.

Sasayama Castle

Reviewed By Felicity_Hashimura - Ikoma, Japan

Sasayama castle is long gone, though the walls remain. There is an informative little centre on the site of where the castle was, with a short, English subbed video outlining its place in history. Some of the other displays would be more interesting if they also had English explanations. The grounds outside are nice for a walk, and there are some cool symbols carved into the rock walls that date to the castle's construction.
For history buffs it might be a nice little side-trip, but maybe not worth organising a trip around.
There is a street of merchant houses nearby too, with a house preserved as a museum. Quite interesting, especially along with the castle.

Michi-no-Eki Ajim no Sato

Reviewed By お遍路さん京都市 - 京都市

最初は酷かったですねぇ、車両を誘導している人のレベルが最低で。混むほどの台数でもないのに入口付近で各車両がうおさお・・・。自動化されて解消されましたね。それにしても情けないと云うか、何で人間がやっている時よりも機械がやっている時の方がスムースなのか・・?益々、人間のレベルが低下しつつあるんですねぇ。機械のレベルはちっとも上がってないのに・・。平日でもそこそこの人が入っていた、と云うよりも京都市内とか大阪方面から日本海、特に天橋立とか舞鶴方面に行くには縦貫道には他に適当なSAもドライブインもないから、自然と皆がここで休憩するようになっているみたい。販売されているものや食べ物は特に注目するようなものもなく、どこにでもあるようなものばかりでしたが・・・。ここも今のままでいいので、少なくとも淡〇ハイウェイオアシスみたいな、仏作って魂入れず、と云うような大型の売店にならないように祈る。

4月24日午後、人影少なく300円を払って(無人賽銭箱)入山。藤は左手の白のみわずかに咲いていましたが少し上の名物の藤棚はつぼみ。それでも天台宗の寺で、信長が延暦寺攻略とかかわりがあります。

Ankokuji Temple

Reviewed By お遍路さん京都市 - 京都市

14世紀に足利尊氏が創建した寺院です。当地は尊氏が誕生した地とも伝承されています。境内には産湯の井戸とか母の上杉清子の墓もありました。本尊は尊釋迦三尊で国の重文に指定されています。ここは紅葉の名所です。個人的にはここの茅葺屋根が特に気に入っています。境内無料、但し、堂内は志納金が必要です。

Castle Town

Reviewed By JonRambo - West Sussex, United Kingdom

I can't read Kanji, but I think this page is the area near Sasayama castle. Within a few hundred metres or so of the castle there are lots of old Edo-era buildings in quiet little side streets arranged around the castle moat. There are a few low key museums too (none with much information in English that I found), but a general wander around in the street is fun by itself and very relaxing. I also visited the Kawaramachi district just South East of the castle. There is a nice old shopping street there with interesting old restaurants and a few tasteful shops for tourists. It didn't seem too busy, and it wasn't at all cheesy and there were plenty of local residents going around their daily business. In general, a nice bit of traditional Japan, and worth a day trip out from the big cities to see something different.
Although I didn't try it, there seemed to be people on rental bicycles. The streets are flat and pretty quiet so that would be a great way to get around.

Reviewed By Kristen M - Ottawa, Canada

This is a nice rest stop compared to most, has some restaurants and a few stalls selling things. There is a park and field so it's great for children to play, you can buy some Tamba swag in the gift store along with snacks. There is also a chance for a photo opt with the town mascot.

Tamba Wine

Winery in Kyoto "Tamba wine" making especially for traditional japanese cuisine.

Reviewed By acchin721 - Osaka, Japan

思い立って立ち寄った丹波ワイン。。
工場見学は事前予約が必要なので出来なかったけど、有料ですが丹波ワインが味わえることができます。
その時の限定ワインから定番ワインまで。。
ソムリエが説明をしてくれるので、自分好みのワインも見つかるかも~~
ワイン販売はもちろん、丹波地方の名産も売店に売ってるのでそれを見学するだけでも楽しいです。

Moto Isenaigu Kotai Shrine

Reviewed By お遍路さん京都市 - 京都市

2000年以上前と云うと神話の世界の物語の次元であって・・・何を云われてもそうなのか?と聞いているしかない程の検証不能な時代です。元伊勢伝承地の代表的な神社です。ご祭神は天照大御神、伊勢神宮選定までに約90年間はこの地が仮の伊勢神宮であったとか・・・ここにも約4年間ですが、天照大御神の神鏡が祀られていた神社です。ここの参道は300m程度もあります。ここには伊勢神宮とここでしか使用出来ないとされている「黒木鳥居」がありました。御神体はここでも「山」で、背後の日室ケ嶽です。我国の神道は殆どが山岳信仰から発生しているので御神体は大抵は背後の山と云うケースが多い。

Fukuchiyama City Zoo

Reviewed By Spatchski - Auckland Central, New Zealand

Nothing spectacular but ok for such a small town. There are couple of new facilities for the animals but generally very old. Very nice people working there so you feel welcomed. Kids liked it that's what it counts it the end.
