    On this tour, you’ll dress in a traditional kimono and stroll the quaint streets of this former post town, which is incredibly well preserved from its heyday during the Edo period. At the rows of souvenir stores, you can browse local goods while sampling pickled foods and local sake. You’ll get to take stunning panoramic pictures from the Ouchijuku viewpoint and relax with some warm tea and Japanese sweets at a traditional teahouse! Your guide will tell you about the locals' way of life during the Edo period, and you will have access to townscape exhibition hall, where you can experience what life was like back then. If you adore magnificent, historical scenery and nature, then this is the tour for you!
