Mino City has been flourished as a production center for traditional Japanese paper since the 8th century, due to the abundant and clear waters of the Nagara and Itadori Rivers.
The Udatsu no Agaru Historic District is so designated for its beautiful historic buildings. “Udatsu” is a constriction term and refers to the wall placed at both edges of the first-floor roof of a two-story house to prevent fire from spreading to neighboring houses. As they city became more and more prosperous, many people, including paper wholesalers, placed these eye-catching “udatsu” structures on their houses in order to boast their affluence. In the town of Mino, you can still see a number of these merchant houses with their detailed lattice work, which were built in the Edo Period.
