The town of Yanagawa (Fukuoka Prefecture), located about two kilometres inland from the Ariake Sea on the west coast of Kyushu, is threaded by a network of serene canals that date back to the Edo period, when these waterways surrounded Yanagawa Castle.
Criss-crossed by lanes lined with Meiji and Taisho-era commercial buildings, and festooned during February and March every year with traditional sagemon decorations that hang throughout the town, Yanagawa continues to exude an old-world charm.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
