Hakone Sekisho, Hakone-machi
(2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
A carefully restored Edo-period traffic checkpoint, Hakone Sekisho 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. Plan to see Hakone Sekisho and other attractions that appeal to you using our Hakone-machi vacation planner.
