Glimpse Japan as it was some two centuries ago at Naraijuku, one of the 69 stations along an Edo-period route. Due to its position along the historical road, the vast number of visitors helped the post town flourish. Today, it enjoys protection as a Nationally Designated Architectural Preservation Site. Soak in the landscape of well-preserved buildings and sites of the Edo period surrounded by large cypress and cedar trees. Don't miss browsing through the shops selling highly intricate woodwork. Make Naraijuku a part of your Shiojiri vacation plans using our Shiojiri travel route builder website.
Post town between Kyoto and Tokyo . Convenient to get here from Matsumoto. And the town is right outside of the train station. There are many quaint shops with local food , artwork and souvenirs . more »
It is a laid back town with a traditional feel. A lot of interesting things to see. Great place to shop, eat, rest and take pictures. Met a few elderly shop owners who took great pride in the things..... more »
should have spent an overnight here.. enchanting, lovely peaceful place or maybe because I visited the place during off-season 😍
Very quiet street and almost without any soul when we visited during late Nov. We had d whole street to ourselves 😅 Beautiful traditional architecture for some of the houses.
