Encountering traditional crafts in the Tobe/Hirota area

  • Sasaki Shuzo (sake brewery)
  • Rural Craft Workshop

RouteASasaki Shuzo (sake brewery)

A sake brewer established in 1872.

A sake brewer established in 1872. The main building and the brick chimney were registered as tangible cultural properties at the national level in 2004 for their contribution to the historic scenery of the area. The 20 m tall chimney is characterized by its distinct capital-like decoration at the top of the structure.

Highlight

Sasaki Shuzo is strictly adhering to the traditional way of manufacturing sake, using local spring water and rice grown within Ehime Prefecture. Also, for the long term storage of sake, we do not use a refrigerator, but store sake in the natural way. Our naturally stored "Yaegiku" can only be purchased at the brewery.

Sightseeing spot

Tobe Tsukiage Fault Park

Tobe town

Tobe Tsukiage Fault Park

The main feature of this park is a reverse fault where older, lower layers of rock have been pushed up and over newer, higher layers on the median tectonic line that cuts across Japan. Known as the Tobe-Shojo Fault, the rock has been exposed through erosion from the Tobe River. It was designated a natural monument in 1938.

Senba Gorge

Tobe town

Senba Gorge

Along the gorge is a nature trail that provides an easy stroll for visitors. Visitors can see four seasons; mountain camellia in spring, an otherworldly show of fireflies in summer, and hear the beautiful courting songs of Kajika frogs* from within the gorge in August. They will also see foliage in autumn, and snow-covered scenery in winter.
*Kajika frogs have been around since ancient times in Japan. Their high toned calls sound similar to deer calls, thus, it is said to be named Kajika (river deer). Kajika's calls are beautiful and have been described in numerous waka poems.
