  • It is a quite small checkpost but you can peep into Japanese olden days of Samurai age. I am not sure English translation of the explanation of this checkpost was there or not. But those who are...  more »

  • It's all "Taigah Drama" crazy around here and the locals are quick to take advantage of all the hype and rightfully so. Kiga and Hosoe-cho in general, are beautiful places to visit and explore. The people are all incredibly friendly. If you're looking for a small town Japan experience, this would be it. The displays at the checkpoint are accurate for the period and accurately reflect the days of when the old highway would run through this area and travellers would be inspected and also have a place to stop and rest. The Imperial family used to come down this way for summer fishing trips many years ago and has special memories for them.
  • There is also the influence of the saga is popular. The nature is abundant, too. There are plenty of locally sourced ingredients. Please enjoy the history.

  • Checkpoint is located near Lake Hamana. I think the checkpoint of the new house on the Pacific side is famous, but the checkpoint of the Keaga is connected to the Hime highway in a historical place. You can listen to the instructions in the instructions and in-house broadcasts.

  • -Checkpoint for tourism. The real checkpoint is northwest of the "Keaga Yotsubashi" intersection. So, this is for sightseeing only. It is a feeling that it is not very interesting.

  • One of the three major checkpoint of the Tokaido. When passing through Lake Hamana, one of the hardest points in the Tokaido, we could choose whether to checkpoint a new house over a sand bar or sea and exit the north of Lake Hamana. It is said that the checkpoint of the Keaga is comparatively safe because it does not exceed the sea and a lot of women exceed it. Therefore, the highway which exceeded the checkpoint of this keaga was called "Hime Kaido". It seems that it is also good to stop because there is a museum of the Princess Kaido near this checkpoint.
