Sanshu Izutsu House

讃州井筒屋敷
An tourism information center where you can try making Wasanbon confectionery and gloves
 This is the renovated house of a businessman who previously ran successful soy sauce and Japanese sake brewing operations. Now it is a multipurpose facility that is centered around a tourism information center.
In the garden there are stone basins for washing hands (Chozubachi) and stone lanterns (Ishitoro). The house is left as it was built – there is a tea room with sliding doors (Yukimishoji – ‘viewing the snow’ doors) through which the garden can be viewed, and a lovely tatami room. Inside the facilities you will find a popular fish restaurant, a shop that sells antique kimono and obi (kimono sash), and an insect shop that has hard-to-find Japanese rhinoceros beetles. A unique line-up!
You can experience making Kagawa’s traditional confectionery Wasanbon and making leather key holders and corsages. Higashi Kagawa is Japan’s number one producer of gloves, and you can try your hand at making gloves here as well.
