Avence Town is north of the Bridge.
When you enter the town, you find out that there are strange rumors about the Toronko Ruins, and that someone has seen a giant tree growing in the area. You also learn that you can't enter the Toronko Ruins without getting permission from Mayor Avarus.
Go to the Mayor's house in the northwest corner. Here you find out that the Mayor's son is the one who claims to have seen a giant tree, but the Mayor thinks he made it all up to get attention. When you ask the Mayor for permission to enter the ruins, he thinks you're after the treasure inside, and tells his maid to throw you out.
Even though you couldn't get permission, Izayoi is still determined to enter the ruins. The Toronko Ruins are southeast of Avence Town, but if you try to go straight there, the guard won't let you in. In order to get inside, you first need to visit the guard's Mom's house in Avence Town. Her home is in the southeast corner of town.
Once you've had Esurient's Mother's cooking, you can go to Toronko Ruins, and you will be able to get in now.
