I made a long stay at “Tuetate Onsen” and arrived in Hita after 16 o’clock.
I went sightseeing sightseeing of “Hita · Mameda-machi” which was the place directly under the Edo shogunate.
1.Local food “Hita Yakisoba(fried noodles)”
There is a unique “Yakisoba(fried noodles)” in Hita.
I ate “Hita Yakisoba(fried noodles)” at Mikuma-hanten（みくま飯店）
Let’s try it!!
2.Pine tree like clouds（叢雲（むらくも）の松） of Kuma Yasaka Shrine
Characters are engraved in the Torii of “Kuma Yasaka Shrine”.
This “pine tree like cloud（叢雲（むらくも）の松）” was overwhelming.
Like a crawl on the ground, the pine stretched out a branch beside it, and it looked like a cloud.
3.Wandering around “Mameda-machi” at dusk
When I arrived at “Mameda-machi traditional building group conservation area”, the sun was dusky.
Various shops were closed…
I take a prayer at a shrine along the river
I felt that the town returned to the “place of living for local people” rather than “sightseeing spot”
Shinbashi（新橋） was lighted up.
I enjoyed the “white-walled townscape” at dusk
4.Hita specialties! “Yakata boat” floating in Mikumagawa river
Another Hita’s specialty is “Yakata boat” floating in Mikumagawa river.
Because I visited on weekdays in October, I only found two small boats in the distance.
Basically, it seems to make a reservation for every inn, but there are boats for engagement, too.
If you are “wanting to go to the boat by all means”, let’s inquire in advance.
