Known for the thatched roofed buildings that line its main street, Ouchi-juku in shimogo was a small post town during the Endo period. It is located in Shimogo in Minamiaizu District, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. These buildings were inns, shops and restaurants frequented by travelers.
The buildings have been restored to look the way they did during that period. Ouchi-Juki is now a very popular Japanese tourist attraction. Visitors can enjoy negi soba noodles, shop for souvenirs, tour the town's shrine and temple or take a walk along the river.
The town is a great way to enjoy a period in Japan's distant past.
