Akizuki City (Entire central city area is designated the traditional structure conservation area)
Akizuki CityAkizuki City, the base town of Egawa Dam and Koishibara Dam (under construction), is called the miniture KYOTO of Chikuzen Region of Kyushu because it still retains the traditional atmosphere of castle town of Edo period. Now the entire central city area is designated a traditional historical structure conservation area. When you explore this city area, strolling in the town, you will feel bits and pieces of traditional EDO period of life. (After Meiji Restoration, this town was unfortunately left untouched from new technological development until recently, but thanks to it, traditional EDO period atmosphere has been kept until now.
