Stroll the three quaint, narrow streets of Sanmachi Suji, an area known for its 19th century merchant houses filled with small shops, breweries, and museums. Admire the historic buildings, made out of black and brown wood, decorated with shrubs and bonsai trees. Although it can feel a bit touristy, the charming district offers an opportunity to sample an array of local delicacies, drinks, and desserts, as well as visiting a couple of galleries or browsing the shops for trinkets and souvenirs.
