Nakamachi Komise Street

A wooden arcade that has remained since the feudal government period.

This arcade has remained from the feudal government period. It was indispensable to the inns, kimono shops, and stores that lined the streets as it blocked the hot sun in summer and protected people from blizzards and snow accumulation in winter. The reason it remains preserved was because no other place in Japan is like this area, so it was designated as one of Japan's top streets in August 1989, and as an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings in July 2005. The scenery with the Takahashi Family Residence, a national Important Cultural Property, as well as the sake breweries, warehouses, and other buildings lined on the arcade are all reminiscent of the old days. Please enjoy the atmospheric streets.
