MATSUMOTO City

Nakamachi Street flourished in the Edo Period along the route that connected Zenkoji Temple in Nagano to Nagoya and Kyoto. It ran through the center of the castle town of Matsumoto and prospered as a business district. The distinct black-and-white architecture of the storehouses is done in an architectural style called "namako-kabe-dozo", which protected the buildings from destruction by fire in the event of a disaster. Today, the area flourishes as a shopping district that includes many traditional crafts, folk art, and restaurants.
