The 100 Year Old Atmosphere still Remains.
Futami, the sight of the Couple's Stones, developed as an hotel town for worshippers headed to Ise Shrine. Wooden three story Japanese Inns and confectionaries retain the 100 year old atmosphere of the area. Among them is the Hinjitsu-kan a special guest house, which, in the past, had the honor of being patronized by royal family members and important dignitaries. Nowadays it has become a museum that is open to the public. Among traditional Japanese buildings the Hinjitsukan have chandeliers and blend together Japanese and European sensibilities.
