A picture postcard location and a photographer's dream location. The historic wooden buildings are so well preserved and you feel you are stepping back in time if you wander around the alleys in between them and go up some of the staircases. There is a lovely smell of wood. The buildings now contain mainly souvenir shops so it's worth looking up and seeing the older aspects of the buildings. We found it was busier in the morning (harder to take photos) and quieter early evening.
