Tokaido Seki-juku

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.

    関宿は歴史的な町並みが残る旧東海道の宿場町です。関西本線の関駅から歩いてアクセスできます。観光駐車場も無料ですが、駅前にある道の駅関宿の駐車場から歩いても良い。宿場町の東追分から西追分まで歩くと結構な距離になります。眺関亭の2階から通りを見渡すことが出来ますので、登って下さい。
  • 規模は小さめ

    かつて東海道五十三次の宿場の1つとして栄えていた町並みが現在も残っています。観光用の無料駐車場があり、そこから1km程度を散策しました。雑貨屋やカフェなど、何店かありましたが、全体的に寂しい感じがしました。近くを通った際は寄ってもいいと思いますが、目指していかないと、なかなか通らない場所かと思います。
