Hakone Sekisho and Hakone Sekisho Museum, Hakone-machi

2.4
#2 of 14 in Historic Sites in Hakone-machi
A carefully restored Edo-period traffic checkpoint, Hakone Sekisho and Hakone Sekisho Museum once monitored a strategic Tokaido road between Tokyo and Kyoto. Originally built in 1619, the current wooden structure was one of the biggest of all 53 Tokugawa-period checkpoints, focusing mainly on weapons trafficking. Strategically located, the spot also offers great views of Lake Ashi. A great attraction for history buffs, the museum features an impressive collection of matchlocks, great bows, spears, mannequins, documents and other accessories, giving an insight into Japanese politics at the time. You can reach the site easily from Odawara station, but you won't find any onsite parking.

  • It is an Edo-mura-like kanki in Nikko, and it is like a little theme park that reproduces the atmosphere of the barrier sat in the Edo period. However, although the scale is considerably smaller than edo-mura, at that time there was a place (there is also an actual site in another place), so I was able to think about "I wonder if it used to be like this" because there was a place.
