Narai-Juku “Old town in Japan”
Narai-juku had the highest elevation of all the spots along the Kisoji. Because of all the visitors going through the Torii Pass (鳥居峠 Torii Tōge), Narai flourished as a post town and was referred to as the “Narai of 1,000 buildings” (奈良井千軒 Narai senken). It has since become one of Japan’s Nationally Designated Architectural Preservation Sites, so the buildings have been kept much like they originally were in the Edo period.
