Tokaido Seki-juku (東海道関宿)

4.0

Historical Monument

Seki-juku in Kameyama City, Mie Prefecture was a post town serving as the 47th of the 53 Stations of the Tokaido in the Edo period (1603-1868). On the Old Tokaido Road a five-minute walk from JR Seki-juku Station, it is still preserved, and you can get the sense that you have slipped back in time to the Edo period. In the vicinity, there are many interesting places such as a museum introducing the history of Seki-juku and long-established stores, and it is filled with spots to take photographs. In addition, there are still over 200 machiya (traditional wooden townhouses) built from the end of the Edo period (1603-1868) to the Meiji period (1868-1912), and the area itself has been chosen as a Nationally-designated Important Traditional Architecture Preservation District and one of Japan's top 100 roads.

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
