We expected more of an attractive traditional street, but this was not much different from the streets in any medium-size hill city.

There aren't a lot of restaurants, but it's a nice stroll down a historic street with a lot of small shops with crafts, etc. It's on the way to the castle from the station, so you can go either on your way to the castle or on your way back.

Only worth if you are staying nearby, some interesting shops with crafts, but restaurant choices are not very good and not prepared to deal with foreign tourists. Much better food choices int he middle of town, where most restaurants are located.

Stroll down Nakamachi street and view local artist work (ceramics and wood), enjoy tea and dessert at cafe, and modern shops (clothing).

This street is a great place to pick up souvenirs of the local area and sample local products. However, it is especially evocative at night, when the shops are closed. Look out for the frog statue at the head of the street.

Both provided local souvenirs local food and a view of what this area looked like in the past. Not far from them is the Genchi Well which is still in... More

Japanese don't seem to believe in building preservation. Town centres are often horribly ugly, with few dilapidated old buildings (even temples!) among new and not so new horrors. This street in one exception, although fully renovated and mostly commercial, but nice to stroll on...

After visiting the Matsumoto-Jo we took a walk here. We just came from the very close-by Nawate Shopping District and were a bit disappointed. It is a nice street, pretty quiet....but also a bit boring. There are shops and stores, but nothing really to our liking. We did enjoy Nawate quite a bit more. Maybe it lacked a bit of... More
