≪Tadotsu Town Project≫ Tadotsu Town - Development of Sea-Land Transportation ･ Merchants who supported modernization -
Tadotsu-cho Hondori, where the Goda Residence stands, has long been crowded with worshippers as the Tadotsu Konpira Highway connecting the port and Konpira-san.
In the Edo period (1603-1867), the river port flourished at the mouth of the Sakura River as a result of Konpira pilgrimage boats, and in the Edo period (1603-1868), the shipping industry flourished as a result of the development of marine transport.
As commercial activities became more flexible in the early modern period and into the modern era, wealthy merchants known as the "Seven Lucky Gods of Tadotsu" took an active part.
The old streets of Hondori, Tadotsu-cho, which retain traces of those days, were planned to provide an opportunity for visitors to learn how the town and its residents once worked together to support each other and to create new perspectives and activities.
