A site located on the coast line of the Jomon Period, where people have long lived

Izushi
(Izushi)

Located in the river mouth of the Izushi River flowing through the Toyooka Basin which used to be a cove in the Jomon Period, the Izushi has been a place for people’s living since old times. Izushi flourished as a castle town in the Edo Period, and the townscape of that time is well preserved. A beautiful landscape is provided by the red earthen walls made of granite clay in the Japanese Sake breweries of the town. Owing to the good quality of pottery stones produced in the surrounding area, ceramics featuring a white texture called Izushiyaki were generated in this area.

ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

Annually 800,000 tourists come to Izushi Town to enjoy the old townscape and unique Izushi Sarasoba (buckwheat noodle), where town houses built with reddish walls are distributed. The Izushiyaki ceramic, the white ceramics made with the traditional technique developed after Kakitani pottery stones were discovered in the east area of the town in 1801, is designated as a national traditional craft. The Izushi Sarasoba is served with the ceramics, making the noodle dish famous. It is said that Soba cooks moved from Ueda in Shinshu Region (central Japan) in 1706 due to transfer of the feudal load and contributed to the development of the Soba noodle making techniques. The Soba noodle shops which have increased in number from two in 1965 to 44, stand side by side in the castle town.
