The town of Masuda is positioned at the confluence of the Narusegawa and Minasegawa rivers. Since ancient times, it has developed as a key logistics hub. Nakananokamachi-dori street in the town of Masuda once flourished due to the silkworm, tobacco, and mining industries in particular. On this street, princely interiors have been preserved inside narrow, but extremely long main buildings.
In December 2013, this area was designated by the government as an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings. There are also sake breweries with over 300 years of business on the street.
