Ikaho Stone Step Street, Shibukawa

3.4
Walk up the historic Ikaho Stone Step Street, a 300 m (984 ft) long commercial and recreational street. Heading up through the center of the mountain town, the staircase has 365 steps in total and acts as the historic center, dating back to the Edo period. With both bustling souvenir shops and restful "ryokan" (traditional Japanese inns with spa facilities and restaurants), you can take the street at your own pace to find that experience that suits you. Stop off at the midpoint of the stairs to see the old center of town, still imbued with traces of days gone by.

  • Very cool, very lengthy flight of steps. Various levels have shops, insensitive, cafes and the like. The very top turns to a meandering path along which you can get various red bean pastries and grilled and salted fish on a stick. You can also try a glass of the very sulfuric spring water from a fountain near the top too. Bus station located at the bottom of the stairs with convenient coin locker storage for your luggage.
  • Not as hard as imagined. A nice hike with some rewarding views. Enjoy a beer and a manju on the way.
  • Have a great time here enjoying street game and snack. You can also warming your feet for free at the 足湯 spot.
  • 365 steps of fun.
  • Worth the time to go to the very top ~~
