Iwase Iwase Iwase

Once a port town of great importance to merchants and businesses, Iwase served the Kitamae cargo ships that crossed the Sea of Japan. An important highway called the Hokkoku Kaido used to run through this area, lined with Kitamae shipping buildings with the riverbed as a backdrop. Many buildings from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) remain now, preserving much of the district’s history.
