The cityscape of the Edo period has been restored and maintained as "Shirai-juku".
There are many objects that are conscious of Shiroi-juku in "Roadside Station Komochi" facing the national highway, but you can easily enjoy the feeling of the Edo period just by going down the back streets! ️
A waterway flows in the middle, and wells remain in some places. The flow of the waterway is very beautiful.
In addition, the remains of Kido, Jizo, and turrets have been maintained, and some of the old townscape has been preserved.
The shops are not lined up like the post town of Nakasendo, but it is recommended to walk slowly while feeling the seasons ❗️
