What is Kikuyo Cultural Property Tourism

Take a culture trip - linking past and future, bringing people together.

The history of the town of Kikuyo is closely tied with the waters of the Shirakawa River that run through it. Kikuyo and the surrounding areas are filled with many tangible and intangible cultural assets that bear deep relationships with the Shirakawa and its water.

No history of Kikuyo is complete without mentioning the Bungo Kaido, a historical road that runs right through the region. Long ago, it was a major road along which many goods and people moved, yielding a unique history and culture in the local area.

Kikuyo Cultural Tourism follows in the footsteps of the people of long ago who controlled and used the water, and visits the heritage sites left behind by the many people who passed through this region.
