Streets of about 500 m of full length seem to time-travel to the Edo Period, and everything leaves the trace in those days. Tsumago-juku which worked on conservation of historical town for the first time in Japan preserves a row of houses in the Edo Period excellently along a highway, and the total area is also best of Japan.
