Nakatsugawa-juku, the 45th post town on the Nakasendo Road, once prospered as the area's leading commercial district. Charming old buildings line the streets of this vibrant town. Many of the houses have Udatsu (fireproof decorations on the roofs of Japanese houses), which were a symbol of wealthy families.
In the center of Nakatsugawa-juku, there is the Nakasendo Historical Museum, which exhibits valuable documents and archives, such as old documents preserved in an old house in Nakatsugawa-juku. In recent years, there are more and more places where you can stop by on your way to the museum, such as cafes and shops that make use of the exteriors of the historical houses.
