Not far from the castle, Nakamachi-dori (中町通り, Nakamachi-dōri) is a street lined by several nicely preserved, old buildings, including a number of warehouse-type buildings (kura) with massive, white painted walls, a characteristic of former merchant districts. Some of them house small shops, restaurants and ryokan.

Access

Nakamachi is a 5-10 minute walk from Matsumoto Castle and a 10-15 minute walk from Matsumoto Station.
