InformationInformation

During the Edo Period (1603 - 1868), Katsuyama prospered as one of the main lodging towns on Izumo-kaido Road, a main road which connects Izumo and Yamato (today's Nara). Many traditional houses and warehouses with white wall and lattice windows at that time are still remain today, and this area was designated as the fist Historical Preservation District in Okayama prefecture in 1985. Visitors can enjoy the rich and emotionally impactful neighborhood of historic warehouses, Samurai residences, and merchant homes with colorful Noren entrance curtains. Some of these buildings are now used as an art studio, café, or a gallery.
