Maintaining the traditional buildings from the Edo and Meiji period, Akagawara in Tottori preserves the history of Japan's past with the white wall storehouses and red-tiled roof buildings. The buildings have been renovated on the inside, but maintain the original facade and designs. The former warehouses have been converted to cafes, galleries, stores, and gift shops. Guests can also rent Kimono to wear while walking around the Akagawara area to get a real feel for traditional Japan. The architecture and design of the district have gathered much attention to the point where it has been listed as an important district for preservation thanks to the traditional buildings. While there are other cities that maintain the original architecture from the past, the bright red and white from Akagawara are a unique fixture in Japanese history. Fans of the classic architecture can enjoy a stop at Akagawara during a private Japan tour with us through Tottori!
