After travelers came over the worst of the Torii Pass, what waited for them was a post-station town known as ”Narai of the Thousand Houses,” liveliest of the Eleven Stations of Kisoji (Kiso Road). Built on streets across a full kilometer, the rich landscape of the Edo era still remains today. Step into the town and be transported back to the days of the Tokugawa shogunate.

Narai-juku is along the road that stretches south from the front of the station. There’s a gentle uphill slope from the station, and the Narai-juku Tourism Bureau is right in the middle of town.
Board at Kiso-Fukushima Station, JR Chuo Line, and ride about 20 minutes to Narai Station.
From the Shiojiri IC on the Nagano Expressway, drive west along Route 20/Route 19 for about 40 minutes.
