Yeme Fukushima


White-walled townscape


The Fukushima area is designated as an important traditional buildings preservation

area by the Japanese government.


Since the Edo Era (1603 – 1868), the area has flourished as an economical and political base, and

many merchant houses which retain the atmosphere of that time remain even today, mainly in the

towns of Miyano, Kyo, and Furumatsu.


The folk performing art “Fukushima Lantern Dolls” is performed at Fukushima Hachimangu Shrine

in Miyano Town around September 23 of every year. *Various events take place throughout the

year (Yame Paper Lantern Festival, Yame White Wall Gallery Tour, etc.).
