It is very small and I was surprised to see photos of my town (^-^)
I hope you enjoyed visiting.

Ako, located in the south-west of Hyogo Prefecture, has developed along the Sea of Harima and the clear stream of the Chikusa River. Facing the beautiful Seto Inland Sea, we have many kinds of special marine products: salt, oysters, seaweed, conger eels. Ako is also a very historical city. Chushingura, the story of the 47 samurai, is known nationwide as a symbol of the idea of loyalty Japanese people had in the Samurai period. Ako Castle Ruins, Kagakuji Temple, and Oishi shrine will tell you more about the story.
