Udatsu Wall Historical District
The "Udatsu" (a small pillar and decoration that can be attached to the roof) was created in the Edo period (1603-1868) to compete for business, centered on the merchant houses in the Kinki region. There are only two similar places where the Udatsu remains as a townscape today, Mino City in Gifu Prefecture and Mima City in Tokushima Prefecture. These towns have developed as a distribution center for indigo plants, with the dreams of a generation. At one time, more than a hundred indigo merchants flourished in the town. The old houses are still in good condition, and you can experience the nostalgic atmosphere along with the history and culture of Udatsu.
