The town of Arimatsu was established in 1608, along the Tokaido route, starting with only 8 settlers including Shoukuro Takeda, the founder of Arimatsu tie-dyeing. As the primary business, dyeing has supported the development of the town, and for 400 years, the houses built in the Edo period have been maintained.

It was categorized as a "National Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings" in 2016.
You can enjoy a relaxing and nostalgic experience, looking at the mud-made storage and old houses lined up along the Tokaido for 800 meters.
