N-29 Narai-juku & Old post town in Kiso-ji

The Beautiful Kiso Road;

Narai-juku historic post town

“Juku” means historic post town (station),  has become the base of the highway. The name “Juku” has been used since the end of the Heian period, but it is a village that developed along with the development of highways during the Edo period.
The post town had the role of letting travelers stay and rest in the inn, but the most important role is to carry official luggage and correspondence carried from the previous post town to the next post town.  For this reason, the post towns are mainly accommodation facilities and wholesale stores that carry out transfer operations.

During the Edo period (1603-1868), the Nakasen-do highway was one of the main routes linking Edo (the old name of Tokyo) and Kyoto.
The eleven local villages from Niekawa-juku to Magome-juku on the route called KISOJI (Kiso Road) are well-known sightseeing spots.
Particularly in Narai-juku, the view of the old street in the area has been maintained, and the houses and buildings have unique local techniques, are historical and academic value.

Fukushima-juku historic post town

Fukushima-juku prospered as a castle town of the lord Kiso during the Sengoku period, and as a camp town of Kiso officer Yamamura during the Edo period.
In addition, the Fukushima Sekisho (=barrier), one of the four major checkpoints, was established, so it was developed as a large-scale post town.

Visit these small villages in the mountains and feel the atmosphere of old Japan!
