A row of houses along Udatsu street and An Awa-Ikeda Udatsu House - Awa-Ikeda Tobacco Museum

Ikeda town, geographically being located at the middle of Shikoku, has always been important crossroad for any transportation to North, South, West and East. The Awa-Ikeda tobacco production industry flourished in the mid-to-late 19th century. The town prospered as the collection point for various goods like tobacco due to its central position. The row of old houses still remained along this old street, giving somehow deserted and solitary feel about them. It is a atmospheric old town, in which you may want to be lost in thoughts. The old residence of tobacco manufacturer who prospered from the end of Edo period to Meiji is now converted into tobacco museum and even after over 100 years passed, it still reminds us of its prosperity of the past. In the courtyard, you will enjoy beautiful flowers of each four seasons.
