Ikaho Stone Step Street, Shibukawa

(2.9/5 based on 380+ 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.
