Remains of the Kusatsu-juku Honjin

Remains of the Kusatsu-juku Honjin

In the Edo period, Honjin were accommodation facilities built in post towns for use by daimyo and court nobles. Of those left in Japan, the remains of the Kusatsu-juku Honjin building are some of the largest, and visitors to the site can see the lodging as it was all those years ago, when it was a popular rest spot for travelers. Take this opportunity to experience the air of the Edo period.
