Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Tohoku / Fukushima Prefecture / Minamiaizu-gun / Shimogo-machi / Ouchijuku
Step back into the Edo period during a venture around Ouchijuku, a historic post station now located within a larger town. Post stations were built to provide travelers transporting goods across the country with somewhere to stay and rest, and the squat wooden buildings have a pleasing aesthetic, nestled together among the mountainous landscape. Take the time to admire the thatched roofs of the well-preserved buildings, and pop in to see what they now contain, with many of the buildings now open to the public in the form of museums, cafes, souvenir shops, and restaurants. Ouchijuku is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Shimogo-machi Edition.

通りの感じは、昔のままの建物が現存する感じでしたが、殆どがお土産屋、食事処になっていて、自然の感じが全くしませんでした。想像していたより、通りは短く一度来たら、二度目はないなあと思いました。 少なくとも、絶対に訪れなければならない観光地とは感じませんでした。 more »Streets was extant remains of the old building, but most shops, restaurants, did not feel natural at all. After than I had imagined, as shorter once came, 2 times I wish it was. It wasn't at least liveable destinations.

会津若松西吾妻山行ったら是非立ち寄ろうと思っていた場所でしたが、宿場町を再現しているのではなく、茅葺きの建物を再現した作られた観光スポットでした。過疎地で歴史遺産を活用した観光開発は良いことだと思いますが、展示館を除いて残りは店舗というのがちょっと興醒めでした。関東、東北の観光客を集めてましたので賑やかでした。 運営されている皆さんには、廃れないように頑張ってほしいです。 more »Aizu-Wakamatsu West Azuma mountain line would come to drop and was wondering where could that reproduce the post town, not reproduces the thatched buildings made tourist spot. Think heritage tourism development in rural areas is a good thing, but except for the exhibition remaining stores that sexy was. It was buzzing because it was attracting tourists in Kanto and Tohoku. It is because we have operated to keep.

会津若松から1時間位の山奥の村。忘れ去られた宿場街を保存したものだそうです。フォトスポットとして魅力的なので、一度訪れてみたいと思っていました。夕方で、駐車場は空いてましたが、GW等のトップシーズンはかなりの混雑を覚悟しておいた方がよさそう。 村の大きな通りを挟んで両脇は茅葺屋根の民家が並びます。殆どが食べ物屋か縁側に民芸品等を並べて観光客相手に商売をしています。奥まで順番に見物し、鎮守の杜から街... more »Aizu-Wakamatsu from villages deep in the mountains for about an hour. It's saved the post town was forgotten. I thought so attractive as a photo spot to visit. Good evening parking was available, but top season, GW was prepared quite crowded. Thatched-roof houses were hits on both sides across the village's main street. Most folk art supplies food or verandah, visitors with business. And haunts the far turn, overlooking the town from Chinju no Mori, coming back to take pictures. During this time over 1 hour. Said the mini version of the shirakawago gassho-style building, where deep touch... no paved roads. One of the famous but regret I could not eat this green onion noodles, next visit is and wonder... what deep place, and other tourist destinations set and hard to...
