Izushi Castle was built in 1604. The stone walls remain from the original castle at the foot and summit of Mt. Ariko. It is renowned for beautiful cherry blossoms in spring, and cherry trees are illuminated at night. The traditional Japanese townscape remains nearby, such as Samurai residences and temples, and often called "Little Kyoto in Tajima". Enjoy famous "Izushi Soba" for lunch. There are over 40 soba restaurants in Izushi Town. Izushi Soba is served on small white plates.
