Historic Walking Area Historic Site
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.

  • Trip to Matsumoto on the way, and certainly over the No. 19 line. Narai-Juku was seen on television, but the town history-packed a old TV more than real. Tourist town to sell a lot more. It is same in tourist souvenir shops. Where can enjoy the House because you're dealing with the goods to each shop, Narai-Juku is different from others.

  • 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.
