    In Japan historical figures who faced tragic deaths are often enshrined as Shinto "Kami(gods)". Kazan Shrine enshrining Kazan Watanabe known to the world as a portrait painter is one of such cases. When Kazan Watanabe was a councilor to the Lord of Atsumi Domain he criticized the government by writing essays called "Shinki-ron(Personal Document Criticizing Ego Government) for their inconsistent foreign affairs policies. He was put in prison in 1839 because of this and he commited suicide two years later. The history of the shrine, however, is rather new. It was built in 1946 as a monument hall for the man of concience. The shrine has only restaurant for Tahara Castle visitors.

    Torii Gate Memorial Hall There is a hallway from the Municipal Museum Connected by the Elevated Hallway Probably the only Restaurant Around The Castle

    Mount Kinugasa is a cone-shaped mountain 278 meters above sea level and is one of the most popular hiking destinations from Tahara City. Popular hiking courses traversing nearby peaks takes about three hours to finish. While Mount Zao hike is for beginners this mountain may require some map reading skills.

    Mount Zao a hill only 250 meters above sea level is noted for the great view of Mikawa Bay, Shiokawa Wetland, and even Mount Fuji on a clear winter day. You can also enjoy hiking from Tahara castle area. It takes about twenty minutes walk from Tahara Castle to the start of the climbing route. It takes about one hour to the top of the hill from the start of the climb.

    One of the most popular outlooks in Aichi

    At the ferry terminal at Cape Irago, there is a shopping mall for buying souvenirs. Most of the things sold there is foods and vegetables produced or grown in Aichi Prefecture. Such as Tomatoes, citrus fruits, Haccho Miso, produced in Okazaki. There are some places to eat as well. When I visited there I enjoyed eating baked O-Asari, 400 yen a dish.

    Favorite thing: Baked O-asari is one of the most popular delicacies in Mikawa Bay area. In Irago Ferry terminal building, you can have this delicious clam for 400 yen a dish. What locals call O-asari is not actually a large version of Asari (Japanese littleneck). It's a clam with its biological name Saxidomus Purpuratus.

    Large Clam(O-Asari) To Please Your Palate To order, just give them a ticket. Just buy a ticket to get it served.
