See some of the best-preserved examples of Edo-period architecture at Nakamachi Street. Aged more than a century, the street's warehouses are fireproof, with walls as thick as 30 cm (11.8 in). Today, the spaces accommodate restaurants, cafes, and souvenir shops. After you enjoy a leisurely stroll or a bike ride down the street, make sure you stop by one of the area's eateries, where you can try traditional soba noodles made of buckle wheat.
