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.

  • I arrived at about half past midnight and went for a walk by car until about half past half-hour. The view of the world was terrible so as to think that it had gone back in time. I went to a soba shop where I ate with famous leeks, but i didn't have to eat it with leeks, so I ate soba and went home around 11 o'clock. When we got out of the parking lot, there were many kilometers of traffic to get into the parking lot. I think you'd better get here early.

  • Reiwa went on New Year's Day. Unfortunately, it was raining, but I feel as if I had gone back in time to the Edo period. It's different from Shirakawa-go, it's compact, and you can go to high ground and take nice pictures.

  • 歴史的ロマンと四季折々の風情がとても楽しめる場所です。 It was a time slip place in Japan's Edo period over 300 years ago. You can enjoy the different seasons of the seasons. Thatched roof is the most characteristic. Please visit once when you visit Japan.
  • The Oku lodging in February has a lot of snowfall. As the feet slide, the temperature is low because it is in the mountains. However, there are figures that can only be seen during this period, it is worth seeing.
