"These are ruins of a hatago used under the name ""Izumiya"" during the Edo period. The building, said to have been built in the Tenpo period (1830-1844), is a place where travelers going along the Tokaido Highway would stay, and did not collapse even during the Ansei great earthquakes such that it maintains its original appearance today. The sign frame and the handrail on the second floor are the same as when originally constructed. In the past, it was one building, but at present, the four spaces on the left are individual residences, and the two spaces on the right are open as rest areas. Also, inside the building, you can experience dyeing and weaving, silverworking, clay crafts, and more."
