NANTO City

The elegant and hilly streets of Johana thrived as a Monzenmachi (a neighborhood surrounding an ancient gate) of Johana Betsuin Zentokuji Temple. The nostalgic atmosphere of the old soy sauce shops and others stores remains intact. Dozougunkura Kairo, the line of store houses owned by the wealthy merchants, is an iconic view of this "Little Kyoto of Etchu Province". In addition to the cherry blossoms-lined streets of Johana, the large cherry tree on an embankment of the Yamada River and cherry trees in Mukouno within a 15-minute walk are also spectacular.
