Fukushima Sekisho was a checking station on the Nakasendo which was one of the four largest checking stations in Japan along with the Hakone checking station on Tokaido. During the Edo period, the policy of “Weapons in, Women out” was severely controlled. The checking station, of which gate and fortress have been restored to their original state, turned into a historical park, and a checking station museum has been established displaying such things as materials and arms related to peoples passage through the checking station.

          Nagano Main Areas


          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country’s most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
