Ouchi-juku, Shimogo Town下郷町大内宿
A post town that retains its Edo period appearance
Ouchi-juku is a post town on the Shimotsuke Kaido road. On both sides of the road are thatched roof houses that served as important rest stops for feudal lords and other travelers on their way to Edo. The town is famous for Negi-Soba, which is eaten using a stem of Welsh onion in place of chopsticks.
To this day, nearly one million tourists visit to see the extremely rare sight of the more than 30 thatched roof houses of this town.
The Hange Festival is held annually on July 2 to pray for family safety and a bountiful harvest.
