  2. Spot: Hachiman-bori Canal

Hachiman-bori Canal

The Hachiman-bori Canal was a mainstay in regional economics and transportation until the start of the Showa period (1926 - 1989). White-walled storehouses and old houses stand along the canal, clearly imparting the atmosphere of the area at its peak. In recent years it has become a famous spot for sightseeing, with such features as the harbor being renovated. It is also a spot often used for filming TV shows and movies, and was recently featured in the live action adaptation of the popular anime "Rurouni Kenshin."
You can also take a pleasure cruise down the Hachiman-bori Canal, enjoying the seasonal scenery that includes cherry trees and iris flowers planted along its banks.
