Udatsu street is lined with old merchant houses from the Edo and Meji periods. As well as being a great way to experience Japanese history, there are also lots of cute shops, cafes and restaurants on this street. There's also a tourist office where you can hire bikes for free. Everyone is so friendly and lots of people stopped to chat to us. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
If you'd like to learn more, I've written a blog post with lots of recommendations and a hand drawn map of the area, check it out here: http://peekingduck.co/little-known-town-wakimachi-japan/
