Explore these back alleyways that will have you feeling like you are wandering around a maze!

Kinkotsu is the local Kanayama phrase that’s used for narrow alleyways that intertwine so intricately that they resemble the muscles and bones of the human body.

Why not take a walk through the narrow pathways of Kanayama that are just like the set of an old time movie.

Exploring the incredibly complex tangle of alleyways will have one feeling as if they have traveled back in time (local guides are available on request).
