The streets of the old-fashioned highway of Mikuni Highway still remain.
You can clearly see that the town has developed along the moat that runs through the middle of the road.
In addition, there is the ruins of Shiroi Castle in the neighborhood, and it is a distant view that has developed as a castle town.
In addition, the rebuilt houses also have the old shop names on display, so you can enjoy it as it is.

It was more than I imagined 👍 The double cherry blossoms continue for about 300m and it is very beautiful! ️ It was wonderful. I saw it twice, walking and driving 🎵 It is also recommended to go back and forth by car.

Located on the river terrace cut by the Tone and Agatsuma rivers, the road and townscape spread out in parallel with the earthworks of Shirai Castle. It's very tasteful. The cafe that remodeled the warehouse was also good. It seems that the double cherry blossoms are beautiful in spring, so I will go there again.

I went to Shirai-juku in Gunma prefecture on April 28th. In the olden days, it seems that the area had a hard time with water, and it seems that many wells were well maintained.
