Maisaka-shuku Waki-Honjin (舞坂宿脇本陣)

Historical Monument

This is the site of the only waki-honjin sub-inn for government officials on the former Tokaido road. The Myogaya sub-inn was built in 1838 in the post station town of Maisaka-juku, the 30th station on the Tokaido counting from Edo; the sub-inn's shoin or study building, which has a jodan-no-ma room with a raised floor, still stands today. Maisaka-juku was once the location of the landing for the Imagire Ferry, which connected the post station towns on the east and west sides of the Tokaido. Records state that in the Taisho period (1912-1926), the former sub-inn was used as a government hall. The area's original townscape no longer remains, but after disassembly and repair work conducted in 1997, the sub-inn's main building and other structures were restored and made open to the general public.

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
