AIZUWAKAMATSU | Nanukamachi Street is a retail street in Aizuwakamatsu with a range of shops that sell local foods and crafts like painted candles, kites, and beautiful laquerware. It’s a quiet street, perfect for those looking to take a relaxing stroll while doing a bit of shopping and eating. The architecture of Nanukamachi is quite diverse, with Edo period buildings standing side by side with Taisho era structures, and even more modern buildings. Visitors get to see a lot of the different styles of architecture that have been prominent in Aizuwakumatsu all on the one street.

One of the most striking kinds of buildings are the old timber kura, or storehouses, which today are used for a variety of things. Shibukawa Donya is one of the most beautiful kura on Nanukamachi, and houses a great restaurant, as well as offering accommodation. If you have a sweet tooth, make sure you visit Nagatoya, a sweet shop that’s over 170 years old and specialises in tasty Aizu Dagashi (cheap confectionery). For those in need of a drink, visit Tsuru Noeshuzō, a traditional sake brewery dating back to 1794.

Make sure to explore the streets that branch off Nanukamachi too. You’ll find plenty of interesting shops such as Mitsutaya, which specialises in dengaku – assorted skewers basted in sweet miso paste and barbecued over charcoal, and Aizu Ichibankan, former clinic turned cafe famous for being the place where Dr. Hideyo Noguchi underwent surgery for his burnt hand.
