小松, 秀雄  ,  Hideo, KOMATSU

Izushi-cho, which is now part of the city of Toyooka in northern Hyogo, was the castle town of the Izushi Clan in the Edo period. The Izushi district was not included in the route of the San-in Main Line that was opened in the late Meiji period, and did not develop into a modern local city. However, as the historical townscape has been well preserved in Izushi castle town, it is highly regarded as a tasteful "little Kyoto in Tajima". From the 1960s, the inhabitants of Izushi-cho reconstructed "Sumiyagura"of the ruined Izushi Castle and improved the historical townscape; this has been called tourism-based community development. In the mid-1990s, about one million people per year visited the small castle town in Izushi. In addition, Izushi Eirakukan, which is the oldest make-shift playhouse (Shibaigoya)in the Kinki region, was renovated in 2008, and since then the "Eirakukan Kabuki" event has been held each autumn. This paper analyzes and discusses various local materials on town development (machizukuri) related to Izushi-cho and the Eirakukan from the perspective of the historical sociology paradigm and the theory of ethos.
