Away from Main Street, it was quiet again. There are narrow streets running parallel with and perpendicular to Main Street. Each of them has a different atmosphere, but they all look traditional.
This is the Oryu Lantern, made of wood. It was used as a beacon for ships in the Edo period.
Finally, I arrived at the Eirakukan Theater, which was established in 1901. It is the oldest drama theater in the northern Kansai region. It is still used for kabuki performances.
It was fun to walk around the building. I was able to see the theater from every angle. I was especially interested in the stage mechanism.
Izushi is definitely my favorite place! I am looking forward to my next visit.
