Go to this spotGoogle Transit

Right next to the Samurai Houses area in Sakura City, Chiba Prefecture, there is an old lane in a beautiful bamboo forest. The Samurai no Komichi (Old Samurai Road), aka Hiyodori-zaka (Brown-eared bulbul Slope), has hardly changed since the Edo Period, when samurai members commuted the sloped-lane between their residences and the Sakura-jo Castle. The gently turning slope, which is about 160 meters (175 yards) long, is well maintained and is efficiently arranged with various bamboo fences including Yotsume-gaki, Misu-gaki and Teppo-gaki fences, and it makes you feel that the you might run into one of the feudal warriors at any time. Sakura City offers guided tours including "Samurai Dress-up Walk" or "Kimono Walk" where you can walk around the castle town in kimono or samurai costumes, visiting the slope, samurai residences and Makata-jinja Shrine etc.
