Nakamachi District is a preserved district with several old buildings and many warehouse (kura) buildings that have been converted into various shops. Nakamachi was the former merchant district of Matsumoto and can be recognized by the row of white painted buildings. Back then it was center of the castle town and thrived as the business section of the city. Some of the buildings in the area are more than 100 years old. Most of the structures were designed to be fireproof by having thick mud walls. By having layers of mud between the buildings it prevented the chance of the products from catching on fire. Walking around the historic district you can enjoy shopping at converted warehouses that maintain an Edo Period look. Every Saturday from April to December there is a morning market where farmers from all over Matsumoto bring in seasonal vegetables, fruit, flowers, and other goods.
