Futagawa Shuku Honjin Museum | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Toyohashi Station 

[Futagawa Shuku Honjin Museum]

Enjoy the atmosphere of an Edo-period post town

This museum offers visitors the chance to see Futagawa Shuku Honjin, which is preserved at Futagawa Shuku (number 33 of the so-called "53 Stations of the Tokaido"), and the next-door hatagoya (inn), "Seimeiya". Futagawa Shuku Honjin is one of two remaining honjins (inns for government officials during the Edo period) along the Old Tokaido, and is a precious building that offers modern visitors a glimpse into the world of Edo-period Japan. It is interesting to compare the honjin, which was an inn for feudal loads, with the adjacent hatagoya, an inn for commoners.
