A photo of the Niekawa village which was a shukuba on the Nakasendo. Two people are seen in the center below. There is not much cultivating land due to the mountainous region, but villagers ran a business during the months without agricultural labor. It was combined with the Narai village in 1909 when administrative reform took place, and the new name of the village became Narakawa village.
