Yokaichi and Gokoku Historical District 八日市・護国の町並み

Explore a charming, traditional townscape

Visit the historical townscape of Yokaichi and Gokoku in the city of Uchiko. Around 93 buildings from the Edo, Meiji, and Taisho periods (1603–1926) line a 600-meter stretch of the main street through the old town. You can learn about the history of the area and ongoing conservation efforts at the Preservation Center, which is located in an old merchant house.

Uchiko flourished during the Edo (1603–1867) and Meiji periods (1868–1912) as a major producer of lumber, silk, and wax. Several residences once owned by local merchants are available to tour. Other properties have been repurposed as galleries, shops, eateries, and boutique hotels.
