Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Tohoku / Fukushima Prefecture / Minamiaizu-gun / Shimogo-machi / Ouchijuku
Step back into the Edo period during a venture around Ouchijuku, a historic post station now located within a larger town. Post stations were built to provide travelers transporting goods across the country with somewhere to stay and rest, and the squat wooden buildings have a pleasing aesthetic, nestled together among the mountainous landscape. Take the time to admire the thatched roofs of the well-preserved buildings, and pop in to see what they now contain, with many of the buildings now open to the public in the form of museums, cafes, souvenir shops, and restaurants. Work out when and for how long to visit Ouchijuku and other Shimogo-machi attractions using our handy Shimogo-machi trip itinerary builder.
