Glimpse Japan as it was some two centuries ago at Naraijuku, one of the 69 stations along an Edo-period route. Due to its position along the historical road, the vast number of visitors helped the post town flourish. Today, it enjoys protection as a Nationally Designated Architectural Preservation Site. Soak in the landscape of well-preserved buildings and sites of the Edo period surrounded by large cypress and cedar trees. Don't miss browsing through the shops selling highly intricate woodwork.

時代劇のセットみたいな街並みが1キロにわたって続きます。木曽漆器の店や土産物屋、寺院などもあって、かつては参勤交代や幕末の和宮降嫁に使われた街道にちょっとワクワクしました。 more »The townscape like the set of the period drama continues for one kilometer. There were also Kiso lacquerware shops, souvenir shops, temples, etc., and I was a little excited about the road used for the change of attendance and the Japanese palace bride at the end of the Edo period.
以前から中山道の三大宿場町を訪れてみたいと考えていたのですが漸く今回実現出来ました。 まずは、こちらの奈良井宿から始めその後馬籠宿、妻籠宿と一気に回りました。 奈良井宿は約１Ｋｍほど続く古い街並みを残す宿場で、宿場内は車輌は通行禁止（地元車のみ通行可）の為、道の駅 奈良井木曽の大橋に車を停めました。 木曽の大橋を渡り、公園を横切り中央線の下を潜ると宿場の北のはずれに着きます。 そこからゆっくりワン... more »I had thought that I wanted to visit the three major post-office town of Nakayama-do for a long time, but it was able to be realized gradually this time. First of all, i started from narai-juku here, and then went around at once with The Magogo-juku and The Wife-Basket-juku. Narai-juku is an inn that leaves an old town that lasts about 1Km, and the inn is closed to traffic (only local vehicles are allowed), so we parked our car at the ohashi bridge in Naraikiso. Cross the Bridge of Kiso, cross the park and dive under the central line to reach the northern edge of the inn. I took a dog slowly and enjoyed a walk from there. The really old streets spread on both sides, and the old buildings retain a firm look at the times. I felt as if I had gone back in time. Even though it was past the middle of September, it was still hot and I enjoyed the walk while sweating.
should have spent an overnight here.. enchanting, lovely peaceful place or maybe because I visited the place during off-season 😍
Very quiet street and almost without any soul when we visited during late Nov. We had d whole street to ourselves 😅 Beautiful traditional architecture for some of the houses.
