Chirimen Kaido in Miyazu is a historical romance. The scenery of a rural town in Kyoto is very emotional.
Chirimen Highway in Miyazu City.
I was on the Chirimen Highway in Miyazu City, Kyoto. There are many places to see here as well. It’s a rural town in Kyoto, but it’s a nice, quiet town.
Chirimen Highway leading to Kyoto.
Chirimen is the fabric used for kimonos and other things, and the place where kimono fabric was made at that time was given various names. Also, at the time, this was the only road leading to Kyoto, so it must have been the Chirimen Road. In Kyoto, kimonos are especially valued, so at that time many peddlers would come and go along this road.
Shipping wholesalers also prospered.
In addition, there is a river that leads to the sea nearby, and at that time ships were sailing along the river, and shipping was also popular. It must have been a time when the so-called shipping wholesalers made a lot of money. The representative is the “former Bito family”. In addition to the Bito family, the mansions of such wealthy merchants line the road.
