Ikaho Stone Step Street, Shibukawa

(2.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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. Ikaho Stone Step Street is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Shibukawa Edition.

  • Ikaho Onsen thermal spring at passing stopped by and try things. I loved it when looked at from the bottom and going up the stairs while expecting. Showa's hot spring town atmosphere small shops are open, and decayed in the hotel were closed, shops, accommodation, completely blanket. Often many of ikaho hot springs in the old facility and the famous stone town in this State, the excessive tourist foot gradually become increasingly deserted town in. It was a visit was witnessing issues that should be addressed in the entire city. If this revisit is definitely not. Unfortunately.

  • Ikaho is exactly--a visit of work pattern on weekdays, so stone town is seriously sad. Few stores are open anyway, and no vibrant. There is also a souvenir shop, but all the way where it's not. A-I have observed. Shooting is just what comes with "Kokeshi dolls" like (lol), I reversed it. I think simply relaxing and hotel accommodation if a ballistic spring so early in spring.

  • Showa line the town's feel is really feeling that hot spring town. Source window and stone plate or enjoy at variety. Even more fun if you join or candy store, and marksmanship?
