The Last Remaining Honjin and Hatagoya at Futagawa-Shuku

According to records dating from 1820, Futagawa-Shuku, the 33rd post town on the important Tokaido highway was about 1.3km long, and was home to some 1,289 people. The town had a transportation office where bearers and horses could be exchanged, an official inn called a Honjin, a lesser ranked Waki-honjin, and 38 Hatogoya inns. Most of these traditional inns along the Tokaido have been destroyed, closed through lack of custom, demolished in the modern age, or damaged in fires and quakes. However, there are a few remaining, and one of the best places to see them is at Futagawa-Shuku, in Aichi's Toyohashi city.
