Wajyu no Sato/Kaizu Town Historical Folklore Museum
Kaizu Town Historical Folklore MuseumThree major rivers (Kiso River, Ibi River and Nagara River) are running down toward Ise Bay and there are many small lowland areas of zero meter above sea level surrounded by those main rivers. Each community built the high levees around the community to prote their individual lowland from the possible flood. This is the start of "Wajyu", literally meaning surroundings in a circle. The history dates back to Edo Period, as floods ocurred frequently during the flood season from June to October. Those two museums display the equipment and tools for the ways to prevent the flood attack and many convenient items to efficiently live in those communities. It is worthwhile to visit and learn with your own eys how peole struggled to beat the flood.
