Hakone Sekisho, Hakone-machi

(2/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • It is and was moved in I was surprised because it had changed slightly in the building of the barrier because it went in more than 10 years, but found an old drawing drawings. And clarity about the journey of the Edo period, the Museum commentary, so observing the fit Museum building and the Interior is nice.
