Ikaho Stone Step Street, Shibukawa

2.8
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.

  • I want ❗ changed the Tokyo and Kyoto Tower. From just the'm tourists think shop next to the stone stairway located in the lively effort. This is where visitors in the tie. Tourist attractions in the base is great, good effort, so is extremely unfortunate.

  • Keep cars overnight after the hotel of ikaho, headed out on foot. Us pushing baby strollers with tourists since this morning was, but unfortunately high hurdles. If climbing wanted by the ikaho shrine, hug!

  • Staying at ikaho, walks the stone steps just right. It is easy even without staying in the spring because there is parking close to the line. Weaving down the stone steps, let's explore the left and right side. I still shop there, guests can enjoy each feature. Onsen manju is a staple. Kiyoshi personally is located along the road leading 〇-Tei is like, but on the stone Street wins ○ Temple also is recommended.
