Stroll through the Moriya district of Chihaya Akasaka village

In the Edo period, it was a distribution center for rice, cotton, rapeseed, etc. in Ishikawa-gun, and a market was held there. The rows of large houses built in a traditional style testify to its prosperity.

Old Townscape of Kansai Chihaya Akasaka Village Moriya
Chihaya-Akasaka Village is located in the southeastern part of Osaka Prefecture, on the hilly land on the northwestern slope of the Kongo mountain range. Moriya was located at the northwestern end of the village, where the village office was located.

It’s close to my house, but I went there for the first time.
This time, after walking along the farm road from Shimoakasaka Tanada, I arrived at Oaza Moriya.
Moriya is said to have prospered as a distribution center for rice, cotton, and rapeseed during the Edo period, and is lined with traditional large mansions.

As I was walking, I heard the sound of the shamisen.
There was also a nostalgic post box that I saw in the Showa era.
