Tsuwano Tourist Attractions
The little town of Tsuwano, once a castle town, lies at the western tip of Honshu, 40mi/ 60km northeast of Yamaguchi. It still preserves many old buildings, including burghers' houses and samurai houses, recalling its earlier days. During the medieval period the town was held successively by the Yoshimi, Sakazaki and Kamei families, who fostered artistic activity in Tsuwano, which now attracts large numbers of visitors, particularly in spring and in the fall.
