History of Ikaho
Ikaho has a long history as its name even appears in the Manyoshu, Japan's oldest surviving collection of poems.
The current hot spring town was founded in 1576 when a warrior Takeda Katsuyori ordered to built the famous Ikaho Stone Steps. Pilgrimage was a common thing among people from Edo period.
Mizusawa Udon Street, in front of Mizusawa Kannon temple, always draws crowds to the city.
Katsuyori Takeda orders the 7 warriors to build the stone steps.
