Strolling along the old Tokaido Highway

About

The Tokaido Road, famous for the ‘ukiyo-e’ ,colored woodblock prints of Ando Hiroshige, is the old highway connecting Edo and Kyoto in feudal times.. There were 53 post towns where accommodations and man and horse for load transportation are provided. In Shizuoka City, there are 6 post towns; Kanbara, Yui, Okitsu, Ejiri, Fuchu and Mariko respectively, and 2 mountain-passes such as Satta and Utsunoya. At Kanbra post town, an old inn, designated as an Important Cultural Property and a former officially appointed inn for feudal lords, ‘Honjin’ are preserved. At Yui post town, such places as Honjin Park with Tokaido Hiroshige Art Gallery, and Yui Cultural Exchange Hall are highlights. At Mariko post town, you can enjoy eating ‘Tororo-jiru’, or soup with grated yam. This is a local specialty which has never changed since the long-established restaurant ‘Chojiya’ was founded in 1596. Strolling along the old highway as if you were the good old days’ traveler is recommended.
