Trip Moments

Melancholy   
Neizi is a quiet and simple town around Songshan. The old street, about one kilometer long, still retains the style of the Edo period. Walk around and look at the old houses and old shops, just like walking into ancient Japan. Rent a bicycle to wander around the town, the first to see is the inner seat. This is a Kabuki Theater built in 1916. It used to be a place for people to watch performances in the town. Uchiko-cho is named after it. The quaint, cumbersome eaves, counters for ticket sales, and ukiyo-e hangs in front of the building all have a feeling of being separated. Although there are occasional Kabuki performances in Uchiko-cho today, I dont know how many people will go see it? Nishikomachi Old Street was once flourishing in the Edo and Meiji periods, and the buildings on the old street were left by the big families of the year. It is said that relying on mountains to eat mountains and water to eat water, the prosperity of Neizi Town depends on a kind of yellow eucalyptus tree that is abundant in the local area. The fruit of the yellow eucalyptus tree can extract the wood wax. Therefore, the local wax products not only occupy the Japanese market, but also are exported overseas. The largest wax shop in the year was a family called Fang Yi. After the family grew up, the eldest son stayed at home to inherit the family business, and the second son moved out of the house. For the sake of convenience, the street neighborhood was called according to the location of the house. They are Shangfang, Zhongfang, and Fangfang, and my family is naturally called Benfang. A town's wax shop, a town of Fang, I have no scenery at one time. However, with the popularity of electric lights, wax products slowly withdrew from the historical stage, and both Fangfang and Neizi Towns gradually declined. Today's Neichi-cho, still retains a candle shop, where craftsmen make candles on the spot, and the owner will introduce the candle making process enthusiastically. Perhaps for them, this is no longer a way to make a living, but to let the traditional craft of wax production be passed down and promoted! In addition to the candle shop, there are many souvenir shops and handicraft shops on the old street, but more are unattended shops. On the long benches at the doorsteps of many people, the vegetables and fruits are placed carelessly. The corn, the peppers, and the simple handicrafts are used to make the tourists pay the price according to the price marked. Take the items you are looking at. Its like the empty towns Uchiko-cho, the quiet streets and the old houses, so that the impetuous heart is settled, as if the hustle and bustle of the city has been far and far away. but caught up with the primary school students, one by one carrying a small bag of shorts running through the side, they laughed and brought fresh energy to the old street. Perhaps they are the hope that Uchiko-cho will prosper again! Tips: Official website: http
