Sawara Town

Sawara (佐原) is a small town located in the north eastern part of Narita City. During the Edo Period (1603- 1867) the town prospered as a transport hub for rice that ended up in the capital. Sawara's historic center along the canal is known as "Little Edo." The small district in Sawara consists of preserved and restored traditional residences, merchant shops, and warehouses that date back to the Edo Period. Departing from this Ja Ja Bridge are boat tours that cruise through the canal. Also found near the bridge are the Ino Tadataka Museum and his former residence. He is known for making very accurate maps of Japan for the Tokugawa Shogunate. The Sawara Matsuri is held in both July and October. It features floats with giant dolls that represent Japanese mythological warriors and heroes. If you cannot make it out for the festival days, then the Dashi Kaikan Museum allows you to see the floats year round.
