Introducing Uchiko

Uchiko is undergoing a mini-renaissance, with a growing number of domestic travellers taking interest in this handsome town with its prosperous past. During the late Edo and early Meiji periods, Uchiko boomed as a major producer of wax, resulting in a number of exquisite houses that still stand today along a street called Yƍkaichi.
