Ikaho Stone Step Street, Shibukawa

(2.9/5 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.

  • Recommended to spend a very relaxing and soak in the hot springs. Atmosphere of old-fashioned Japanese sweet bun shop, candy store and shooting its hot spring town. Ikaho hot springs where you can enjoy affordable and bath and foot bath (footbath was free). Enjoy croaking bridge leaves in the fall, but the mid-11 as and when it is a little late. Says either is not for young people. On weekdays and some places closed shops, might feel lonely. I think better, so is not suitable for spending a day other tourist went into perspective.

  • Let transportation down the stone steps from the hotel, a little walk in the Park. For evening it was dark a little lit up and the clean. Many shops are closed Ocean rather than the person.

  • Stone from the bottom onto the slowly while watching around the shop down from the top or stroll. This alone was enough.
