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. Work out when and for how long to visit Ouchijuku and other Shimogo-machi attractions using our handy Shimogo-machi trip itinerary builder .
まるでタイムスリップしたような街並み。 茅葺き屋根の住居が並ぶ街並みは本当に美しく素晴らしいです！ お蕎麦を食べにお店に入ってビックリしたのが、エアコンなしでも十分に涼しかったこと。茅葺き屋根って建築としてとても優れていたということを体感できます。 登るのは少し大変ですが、ぜひ展望台にも行ってみてください。古き良き日本の街並みの美しさに感動しますよ。 more »It's like a time-lapse. The streets lined with thatched roof houses are truly beautiful and wonderful! I was surprised to come into the shop to eat soba noodles, but it was cool enough without air conditioning. You can experience that the thatched roof was very good as architecture. It's a little hard to climb, but please go to the observatory. I'm impressed by the beauty of the good old Japanese streets.
