Very interesting quaint village. Takes about an hour to finish touring. Can get a lot of tickets for souvenir, picturesque in winter.

This is an old Edo period rest town that does not require a lot of time to visit but does require an hour or so to get there from Aizu-Wakamatsu. It is a very traditional thatched roof village. A long street has buildings on both...More

If you are interested to see how Japanese people were living 400-500 years ago, then this is the place to visit once. Very nice thatch-roof wooden houses along the muddy road are still maintained at old state. Some interesting small businesses are still there which...More

As a post station or “shukuba” in Japanese, this place has quite a unique history. Unlike such better-known post stations as Magome and Tsumago, which had developed from the existing townships along the major travel routes in the feudal age, this one was specifically designed...More
