Ikaho Stone Step Street, Shibukawa
(2.9/5 based on 340+ 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 hot springs is very. 365 days a year-in the whole thing? So, atop the ikaho shrine. On both sides of the stairs leading up to it, such as souvenir shops and fairground. This atmosphere is an attraction at ikaho hot springs. However, I was still very much thought the stairs were maintained, so personally I little old?

  • Three hundred decades-or involuntarily reminds me of Kadan. Exceeding the 200 steps around the souvenir shops on both sides of the foot found the stairs will heal a foot here, bun shop, shooting, etc etc this is somewhere landscape I have seen as well, loose!

  • Speaking of ikaho stone steps doesn't. It is 365 stone steps. I think to take a walk while lounging, watching shop because there is a souvenir shop.
