Travel Guide - Zenko-ji Nakamise-dori Street


Zenko-ji Nakamise-dori Street is a stone-paved street spreading out from Nio-mon Gate of the Zenko-ji Temple. It is said that around 7,777 stones were used to pave the 450 meters approach leading to the temple's main hall.
The street is a bustling shopping area and the shops along the street sell local specialties such as Oyaki, Shinshu Soba noodle, sweet crapes made from Soba and wheat flour, and Miso-flavored ice cream. Nagano prefecture is the birth place of Japanese Soba noodle and has a longstanding reputation for the delicious noodle. Oyaki is a typical local dish of the Shinshu region. It is a dumpling made of wheat flour filled with seasonal and wild vegetables, which is steamed or baked. Each shop has its own special variety.
