Ikaho Stone Step Street, Shibukawa

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.

    There is history that opened as the first hot springs resorts in 1900 years ago. It is interesting because the stone has been new ones along the way air is also seen. Covers the entire site and not imagine all the shops open so I just was not the lively feel. Climbed toward the origin located towards the top onsen manju shop is excellent in about 10 minutes. I guess I have more taste and at night.

    Match went to ikaho Onsen thermal spring festival. Carrying on at night, and go up the stairs until the ikaho shrine, and the small Mikoshi children and women's groups have climb up thrilling to watch. I once asked a group of people look so easy the heavy spins it around, go on and hard. On,,,, and reversed fall under komorimashita heat is cheering for the team. And k. thanks for putting dance and visitors dance together and enjoyed it.
