Sendohira Lock

Sendohira Lock

The Fukuhara-bound Sendohira Lock is located in the Tri-Prefecture (Aichi-Gifu-Mie) area. The Kiso and Nagara rivers were connected as a part of riverway improvements made during the Meiji period. During that time, water transport was flourishing, so in 1902, the lock was constructed to link the Kiso and Nagara rivers and their differing water levels. “Little Panama”, as the unusual lock is sometimes called due to its similarity in construction to the locks of the Panama Canal, is regarded as a national cultural treasure. The surrounding area has been turned into a park and is now famous for its sakura trees.

Avenues of Sakura Trees at Ainokawa

Everyone delights in relaxing beneath the sakura trees along the Ainokawa river. Crowds of visitors come each spring to see the sakura in bloom illuminated by lights at night. In 1997, a fountain was constructed here, much to the enjoyment of those who come for walks or to go fishing.

Chuo Library

Chuo Library

The library was constructed in 1997 as a place for cultural dissemination. With an audiovisual corner, a discussion room, and more, the library is equipped to meet the needs of everyone from children to adults.

Good service has been made a priority with the installation of computer-based search system that speeds up and simplifies the check-out of library materials and a direct connection to the Aichi Prefectural Library’s online search for checking out materials not located in this library. Our library serves the community by being a place where books are appreciated, and learning and culture are fostered.

Tatsuta Fureai no Sato Roadside Station

Tatsuta Fureai no Sato Roadside Station

Tatsuta Fureai no Sato, a Japanese-style building reminiscent of a mizuya with its black stonework walls, was built in the Morikawa area alongside the Sayatado prefectural highway and opened in December 2004. The structure is a testament to the rejuvenation of local specialty industries with its produce stands that sell local farm produce like vegetables and flowers as well as lotus root and foods made from lotus root. Our goal is to come together to create a town where residents and visitors can meet each other, and where anyone would enjoy living.

Meitetsu Fujinami Station and the Station Square

Meitetsu Fujinami Station and the Station Square

The Fujinami Station Square has been designed to include a shelter, public restrooms, a parking lot, a water landscape, a traffic island (Saori-no-oka), and an open lawn. The shelter keeps station visitors dry as they use the restrooms or wait for taxis, and the parking lot is also covered. Cleaning of the public restrooms is overseen by the senior citizens’ center, so we ask our visitors to keep them clean when using them.

In 2002, Meitetsu Fujinai Station was selected as a Chubu Top 100 Station due to its design and appearance.
