Tourist guide to Jinaimachi town, Tondabayashi, a historic district and heritage site of Japan, Shops, Restaurants and Guesthouse
Reuse and utilization of old traditional townhouses have recently become a quiet boom  nationwide as it is well-known in Kyoto. As a new movement of the past few years inJinaimachi town, Tondabayashi city, there increased more shops refurbishing old townhouses in harmony with surrounding historic townscape.  

There are wide variety of shops such as those dealing with homemade bread, grocery, daily utensils, antique items as well as workshops of traditional crafts such as wooden furniture and handmade pottery. Coffee shops and casual dining restaurants are also available including Japanese traditional soba noodle and Italian cuisine restaurant. Those shops and restaurants are characterized as new and unique concept which had never existed in the Jinaimachi town. Please come and visit us to enjoy strolling the town. 
 

We wish we could enjoy more and more retro nostalgic shops dealing with such as candy, handmade tofu, milk stand, photo studio, toy store of handmade, Japanese cinema and public bath, and used bookstore. Come to think of it, wine bar and French restaurant, too is yet. . Or would not be expected revival of sake breweries that had a lot in Meiji era (18th century)?

National conservation district of valuable traditional buildings


Jinaimachi town, a part of Tondabayashi-cho located in Tonadabayashi city has been chosen as a national conservation district of valuable traditional buildings since 1997, which is only selected in Osaka Prefecture. Among approximately 500 buildings in the town, 181 buildings built during the period from the Edo era to the early Showa era have been identified as traditional buildings.

After repairing works for the conservation of the exterior appearances, the reconstruction and face-lifting in consideration of landscaping, a white wall, a board fence, and a lattice door of traditional house remain as used to be, and rustic and calm atmosphere has been kept as people still live in those houses.  

The signpost is provided with main traditional residences to explain each origin and history, and those guiding signposts cum street lights have been placed along the streets of stone-pavement.    

In addition, the appearances of newly built buildings are also harmonized with the neighboring historic district in consideration for the traditional townscape in Jinaimachi town.
