Naraijuku, Shiojiri

(200 reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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. Put Naraijuku into our Shiojiri trip generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Shiojiri.

  • The atmosphere of Japanese village is preserved well, and you can feel the history of prosperity as a station town. If you are interested in Japanese geographic, city design, history and architecture,...  more »
  • Winter town was anyway cold. It seems Sun can't only East and West about 90 °. But no wonder that only this city remains today. Many people are all nice people. Summer with tourists!

  • Loved this place even in winter, yes only a few shops open but almost no tourists, great spot to soak up some history of a amazing old road from Tokyo to Kyoto  more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful small town in the Japanese towns. Has retained a lot of character in spite of being tourist-ish (but nowhere as touristy as other places in Japan, and mostly domestic travellers). Beautiful laquered objects.
  • the best part of nakasendo come to visit
  • The streets of the town are well kept. Acts in the period after built like many town unity and thoroughly enjoyable. Despite Tourism Association is a non-business hours, very very responsive to us. Good for a short distance away from the station.
