Nakamachi Street in Matsumoto City : 松本市「中町通り」

Matsumoto's Commercial Street with Distinctive Black & White Contrasting Storehouses

Matsumoto/Northern Alps

Description

Matsumoto is a castle town dating back over 400 years. Nakamachi is one of the original main commercial streets and is lined by earthen-walled storehouse-like buildings with traditional contrasting black and white-colored facades. Today the buildings house craft shops, art galleries, restaurants and other unique shops. The heart of Nakamachi is Kurashiku-Kan, a remodeled storehouse open to the public. Farmers Markets are held there holiday and weekend mornings.
