Yuasa-jo Hotel

Yuasa Kokuminshukusha

Yuasa-jo Hotel is built like a castle on a hill overlooking Yuasa bay.  Yes, literally like a castle! Guests rooms are located in the outer corridor and central tower, with a cloister around a inner garden with rock garden and groomed pine trees.  The gently sloped tiled roof-line echoes the image of Feudal Japan. There are simple Japanese and Western style guestrooms.  A large hot spring bath offers views over the town towards the sea.  Meals include local seafood and products.  The rolling, surrounding landscape features terraced orange orchards.  It is a short taxi ride from Yuasa train station.

Yuasa

Yuasa Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings

Historic Industrial Town (Soy Sauce)

 

Since the latter part of the Heian period (AD794-1185), Yuasa has not only served as an important way station on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, but has also flourished as an important center for land- and sea-based trade as well as commerce, industry, and fishing.

 

Yuasa is especially renowned as the home of shoyu, or soy sauce, said to have first been discovered as a by-product of the process of making kinzanji-miso, afermented soybean product first introduced to Japan from China during the Kamakura period (1185-1333).

 

During the Edo Period 0603-18681 the market expanded under the protection of the Kishu feudal domain (present-day Wakayama prefecture), and soy sauce brewing developed into Yuasa’s foremost industry.

 

The Preservation District comprises a number of towns, said to have been founded towards the end of the 16th century, located on the coast to the west of the old Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage route. It was in these towns that the soy sauce industry was most active. The district is home to many shoyu-related shops and warehouses dating as far back as the Edo period, all built in traditional fashion.

 

The older buildings are low, two-story structures, with roofs that resemble the shape of an open book laid face-down, a style known as kirizuma-zukuri, and are tiled with alternating flat and rounded tiles, a style known as hongawara-buki. The area is made up of a network of small streets branching off of four main avenues, and even today is suffused with the aroma of soy sauce brewed in the traditional manner.

 

Visiting this historic area is a must see for visitors to Yuasa.
