ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

Shikano is a 400-year-old castle town. The tranquil landscape and the murmur of water in the canals running throughout the town give you a sense of calm. One theory states that this small castle town was built here because this area was an important transportation point. Looking at how the surrounding mountains and rivers are situated, this theory may be true. People in this town are proud of their town formed by unique geological features and the traditional culture developed here. You can spend a relaxed time strolling around the town together with guides, and experience making soba noodles and dying textiles with indigo.
