Nanokamachi Street

This street’s name derives from the fact that markets were held here on dates ending in "7," "nanoka” meaning “the seventh (day)."
It was the old castle town’s west entrance through which the Echigo Road, Yonezawa Road, and Nikko Road, among the Five Roads of Aizu, led to Omachi-yotsukado, the center of the town.
Nanokamachi still retains a nostalgic streetscape, with old storehouses and shops housed in old, wooden and Western-style buildings.
