House IconOuchi-juku

Ouchi-juku is a nostalgic street lined with well-preserved traditional thatched-roof buildings from the Edo period, located an hour south from Aizu-Wakamatsu. This former post town is located along an old trading route that connected Aizu and Nikko, and the entire town has been preserved to look as it did in the Edo Period - the streets remain unpaved, and even telephone and electricity wires are buried! Many of these thatched buildings are converted into lovely inns, shops, and restaurants, so you can stroll around to find small novelty items and snack on some street food. Try some of the local fare such as their specialty soba, kiln-baked curry rice, and much more!
