City Planning

City PlanningThe town of Arimatsu started in 1608 by the order of Owari Clan. There was not much land to cultivate, and very little possibility to do well in entertainment business. They started shibori manufacturing as a side business. This Arimatsu Shibori attracted tourists traveling along the Tokaido, and Arimatsu began to enjoy prosperity.

A big fire broke out, however, in 1784, and burned most of the town.

Learning a lesson from the tragedy, this time they built houses of plaster wall sand tile roofs. Some parts of those buildings still remain and create the atmosphere of good old days. Among those buildings, the Hattori Residence is designated by Aichi Prefecture, and the Oka, Kozuka, and Takeda Residences are designated by Nagoya Municipal as ‘Cultural Treasures’.
