Tono in Iwate Prefecture

I went to Tono in Iwate Prefecture during Golden Week.
Tono is a famous district for folk tales.
While sightseeing Tono area, I found there was an artificial village consisting of several houses with thatched roofs and some oldstyle barns.
In a hotel where I stayed, there was a special service for guests whom a local grandma named “kataribe” spoke old folk stories to.
It was glad that old conventions of tono district remained as a local redevelopment movement, but I didn’t feel it satisfactory in resent Tono , where I had been for the first time about 30 years ago.
