Historic Townscapes of Arimatsu
The village was established in 1608 between the post towns of Chiryu and Narumi on the Old Tokaido Road, through encouragement by the ruling clan. The traditional Arimatsu-shibori tie-dyeing of this area is said to have been invented by the first immigrant to the village, Takeda Shokuro, and the village prospered along with the tie-dyeing industry. Arimatsu lies along about 800 gently bending meters of the Tokaido Road. The townscape's relatively relaxed atmosphere has been preserved, with many wide-plot tie-dyeing stores, gates, and fences.
