Nakamachi Street中町通り


White wall and black namako (raised plaster) storehouses stand side-by-side along Nakamachi Street, making it fun to walk down and peruse the many individual general stores, souvenir shops, cafes, sweet shops and restaurants. The symbolic former brewery Nakamachi Kurassic-kan is a distinctive building with a teahouse looking onto a courtyard, a hand pump water well, and atrium beams. Visitors will enjoy the enjoyable, atmospheric townscape.

There are just a few houses, all harboring overexpensive shops for tourists. In 10 minutes one has a complete overview. Perhaps authentic (is it), but not very interesting.

          Nagano Main Areas


          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
