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. Make Naraijuku a part of your Shiojiri vacation plans using our Shiojiri travel route builder website.

  • Post town between Kyoto and Tokyo . Convenient to get here from Matsumoto. And the town is right outside of the train station. There are many quaint shops with local food , artwork and souvenirs .

  • It is a laid back town with a traditional feel. A lot of interesting things to see. Great place to shop, eat, rest and take pictures. Met a few elderly shop owners who took great pride in the things.....  more

  • Visiting Narai-Juku was an amazing experience with friendly people at every corner. The views are amazing and all the shops and inns are very welcoming. The little area has so many things to see from historical architecture, to shrines, temples, and hidden views. This is a great place to visit and take some time to slow down and appreciate.
  • It's nice but doesn't have ambience. Maybe because we went on a Sunday. The architecture is beautiful. Nice for a car stop, but not to spend too much time.
