◆ Nanokamachi Gotenzeki

Gotenzeki is one of the five former weir (irrigation canals) areas in Yamagata City.
It was used to carry agricultural and domestic-use water for over 400 years, and part of Gotenzeki also flowed to the moat of the Yamagata Castle.

The area was redeveloped in 2010 utilizing the old-fashioned masonry canal and was renamed Nanokamachi Gotenzeki, now a place of relaxation for citizens and tourists.

The complex made of the main building and warehouses hosts 8 unique shops including restaurants but also souvenir shops. 

This time, we will introduce all the charms of the Gotenzeki area of Nanokamachi in Yamagata City.
