Naraijuku, Shiojiri

#1 of 15 in Things to do in Shiojiri
Glimpse Japan as it was some two centuries ago at Naraijuku, one of the 69 stations along an Edo-period route. Due to its position along the historical road, the vast number of visitors helped the post town flourish. Today, it enjoys protection as a Nationally Designated Architectural Preservation Site. Soak in the landscape of well-preserved buildings and sites of the Edo period surrounded by large cypress and cedar trees. Don't miss browsing through the shops selling highly intricate woodwork.

    Visited for the first time in 2009, moved to, since this is the 4th time. Seems likely and Bon in the road in front of each home-house fires and fire to Fireworks, the mood is very good, and come summer in this direction usually stop. Now, however, in 2017 was that fireworks are done, very little. What has changed with the times.

    Narai-Juku was surprised compared to tsumago and Magome (long path) larger town. To walk slowly to get tired as much as possible. Came across a scene begin exactly town festival, with musical accompaniment came up at the southern end. Many shops closed early for the Festival is too bad. Do not know what use the station parking lot, many of those who came by car, going to 並bazaru. Is found, when you finally get parking information and arrangements person looked hard work really only one person alone. I want increase personnel in the only season of them.

    Nice and quiet (guess it's because it was weekday and there were not much tourists) and good for a nice little walk

    Amazing town with its main stretch all kept in the old post-town look. Really worth looking around, had some good food, and if you can, I highly recommend staying the night in one of the Ryokans!

    Visit this 300 years old town of Japan, it will bring you back in time of how Japan is like in the 17th century. Lots of small merchandise store selling different food and sunrises. Plenty of restaurants too. Worth a visit and plan for a meal stop. 2 hours if you make it snappy else 3+ hours including meal.

    I came here during weekdays. Not many tourists and it feels very peaceful. The people here are really genuinely friendly and curious.

    1 of the old post towns in Kiso valley,Narai is a rather small village stretches along the main road. On both side, there are the old wooden houses giving a special atmosphere.
