Tokaido Shinagawa-juku 東海道 品川宿


sh575-IMG_3036.jpg

During the Edo Period, the Tokaido Road connecting Tokyo (Edo) and Kyoto was the most important travel corridor which had 53 post towns to lodge travelers. Shinagawa-juku was the first such stage town on the route. Numerous inns, teahouses, and entertainment quarters were on this waterfront town. Today, the road still remains, but everything is totally modern. No traditional-looking buildings except for shrines and temples including Shinagawa Shrine.
