Hokkoku Kaido Yanagimachi旧北国街道・柳町

Historical Road

A street located in the center of Ueda City. Situated along the Hokkoku Kaido, an ancient highway, in the Edo period, the street was lined with many inns, merchants, and dry goods stores; in the Meiji period, the sericulture industry also flourished here. Today, the street still retains much of this Edo period atmosphere, but is now occupied by many restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops offering Shinshu soba noodles, local liquors, and tea. Visitors can feel the history of the area as they explore the street.

          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.
