Walking around Murakami
Dotted throughout the former castle town of Murakami are traditional houses that continue to be used today as houses and shops. Many of the "machiya (traditional townhouses)," made using traditional methods, have been opened to the public, allowing visitors to enjoy walking around the town. Senami Onsen is located nearby from where visitors can see panoramic views of the sun setting in the Sea of Japan, and allowing them to enjoy traditional Japanese culture and hot springs at the same time.
