Area Guide

Central Area

The center of tourism in Obuse, this compact area is just a five-minute walk from Obuse Station and only takes about fifteen minutes to walk around. With celebrated chestnut confectioners and sake breweries, the Hokusai Museum featuring masterpieces from Katsushika Hokusai’s later years, atmospheric side streets, and shortcuts through “open gardens” at private residences and shops, this area offers shopping, the arts, and a great place to enjoy a stroll around Obuse’s distinctive townscape.
