Imaicho Town

Walking into Imaicho town is like walking back in time to the Edo period of Japan. Most of the buildings are from that time period with very little modern-day buildings. During the Edo period, citizens of Imaicho town were very wealthy and was filled with merchants trading in Osaka and Sakai. Roofs were made of tiles for most citizens, instead of the more common straw that was used during that time. The town even had their own currency and started to lend money to local samurai. After the samurai system ended in 1868, most of the money lent out weren’t collected, driving the town to economic failure. The Imanishi Residence, one of the oldest and well preserved houses dating back to 1650, is open to the public to visit. Back in the day the town opposed Oda Nobunaga, a powerful warlord, and was heavily armed for battle, but through peaceful negotiations conflict was avoided.
