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 wooden lantern. It functioned as a beacon for ships in the Edo period.
Finally, I went to the Eirakukan Theater. It was opened 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.
I left the theater and took the bus for Toyooka Station. I got on the Konotori Express at Toyooka Station to go home. I fell in love with Izushi! I really want to return there. I bought some traditional cakes as a souvenir. They were soft and delicious!
