** Historical Post Town “Shinagawa-shuku”
During the 17th century Edo Period, the ruling Shogunate maintained 5 main roads leading to Tokyo. Shinagawa was the last stop of the Tokaido Trail which stretched between Kyoto and Tokyo, with Shinagawa-shuku established as the final post (rest station) for travelers.
Although in recent years the main street of Shinagawa-shuku has changed over to a residential shopping district, you can still enjoy the atmosphere of the old-fashioned town.
