Found at the foot of a former castle, Nagamachi Neighborhood transports visitors back to the age of samurais. Walking along the stone pavements within the district's walls, you can see the remaining middle-to-upper class samurai residences, earthen mud walls, and private entrance gates. The historic atmosphere is enriched by the Nomura-ke, a restored samurai residence displaying artifacts from the city's prosperous era and a small garden. Obtain a contrasting perspective by visiting a museum providing insight into the lives of the merchant class. Teahouses and restaurants, scattered throughout the district, allow visitors to rest and taste the local cuisine.

  •  You can walk along The Onosho Water. There is a rest place, a restroom, etc. on the way, and there is a guide if i arrange it in advance, too. There is also a Japanese confectionery shop next to the ruins of the Nomura family residence.

  • Surrounded by a building that was a samurai residence, it is a curved cobblestone street, and it is the perfect street for a walk that is well maintained without a telephone pole and can be passed off even for the kabayashi. It is not inferior to the famous stone wall street in Gion in Kyoto.
