Nakatsugawa is a city located in the Tōnō region of Gifu Prefecture, Japan. The city was founded on April 1, 1952.HistoryDuring Japan's Edo period, Nakatsugawa was a post town, known as Nakatsugawa-juku, one of the 69 Stations of the Nakasendō along the Nakasendō. The travel route ran from the Nihonbashi in Edo (modern-day Tokyo) to Sanjō Ōhashi in the imperial capital of Kyoto. It was one of the five major routes used in the Edo period, and one of two that connected Edo and Kyoto.
