I did this twice for the first time I was fighting a late in the day sun; second time was overcast and my photos improved drastically.

This is the main shopping street in Aizuwakamatsu with lots of picturesque buildings selling souvenirs and handicrafts. The best part of our visit was the Suehiro Sake Brewery, which offered a great free tour (Japanese only) and sake tasting.

Interesting street with lots of unique shops, many of which are housed in old style warehouses. Enjoyed the sake tasting and eateries, as well as the shopping

This is the merchant district of the township of the joukamachi (castle town) of Aizu-wakamatsu. Here some of the Edo era heritage has been preserved. So I suggest you stroll the streets to pick up some gifts at the shops. One interesting feature of Nanokamachi Street is the odd zigs and zags the route takes. Usually this is a defense mechanism seen in castle towns so that invaders will have to take a zig zag route stalling their progress and making it easier for a counter attack. Our voluntary guide at Tsuruga Castle told us that it was to block flooding as the land is slanted from the higher east to the lower west. Upon further study, it appears that she was right that it was not as a defense mechanism but related to water. The majority view appears to be to change the flow of water from east to west to occasionally north to south so that water could be supplied to a larger area. It also appears this was the invention of the Christian lord UjimasaGamou according to the City of Aizu-wakamatsu.

A street of charming historical buildings from many eras. Many interesting shops and restaurants. Experience Japan as it was pre-war.
