Historic and Quaint

Ouchijuku resembles a movie set. Stroll around this authentic post town to admire the unique thatched houses lining the main street.

Discover Ouchijuku

Ouchijuku is a charming village that seems as though it is frozen in time. Found among the tranquil mountains of the Fukushima Prefecture, this historic post-town allowed bygone travelers to stop and rest as they ventured along trade routes between Aizu and Nikko. Ouchijuku offers both a glimpse into Japan’s storied past and an escape from the modern world. 

As you wander through the narrow streets of Ouchijuku, you’ll be transported back to the Edo period. Ouchijuku’s atmospheric streets are lined with these quaint thatched roof houses which have been converted into local shops, offering traditional crafts and handmade souvenirs, and restaurants offering regional specialties, such as negi-soba (buckwheat noodles with green onions) char fish on skewers, or dango (sweet rice dumplings). There are also traditional inns known as ‘minshuku’ here. 

The village is surrounded by natural beauty, with the majestic backdrop of the surrounding mountains creating a picturesque image. Explore the nearby Aizu region, renowned for its beautiful landscapes, including Lake Inawashiro and Mount Bandai. Hike through scenic trails, witness vibrant seasonal colors, and breathe in the crisp mountain air. 

Ouchijuku’s historic significance is also reflected in its proximity to the Aizu-Wakamatsu Castle, a well-preserved samurai stronghold that offers insight into Japan’s feudal era. Discover the castle’s rich history with a tour through its impressive grounds, and gain a deeper understanding of the region’s cultural heritage. 

For a truly immersive experience, consider staying in a traditional Japanese ryokan, where you can experience the warmth of Japanese hospitality and indulge in rejuvenating hot spring baths. Unwind in the therapeutic waters while taking in the peaceful surroundings, embracing the tranquility that Ouchijuku exudes. 

Ouchijuku invites you to step back in time, to immerse yourself in the simplicity and charm of a bygone era. Embrace the village’s authentic atmosphere, savor local flavors, and explore the natural wonders of the surrounding region.
