Fujikawashuku (also called Fujikawajuku) was the 39th Juku Inn of the 53 such inns that existed along the ancient Tokaido Road. Sightseeing spots that reveal vestiges of the ancient inn town include the serene Pine Promenade of Fujikawa "Fujikawa no Matsu Namiki", featuring some 90 Kuromatsu black pines planted along roughly 1km of the access road, and the ruins of the Western Limits Marker "Nishi Bohana-ato" (lit. "Ruins of the West Extremity Nose", as "nose" was the word used to indicate the farther borders of a location). The signs and pole now standing at the "nose" were rebuilt according to the utterly famous Ukiyo-e "Fujikawa" - one of the "53 Tokaido Inns" collection painted by Hiroshige. There's also the Waki-Honjin Main Quarters Annex's gate, reminiscent from the Edo Period, and Murasakimugi purple wheat plantations, a culture mentioned in many old songs and historic travel journals.

Fujikawashuku, welcoming travelers up to this day

Roadside Station

Once the place where countless travelers rested and gathered, Fujikawashuku of the Tokaido Road was reborn as Roadside Station Fujikawashuku, a new face after over 400 years. Located in the Eastern entrance of Okazaki-City, birthplace of Hero Tokugawa Ieyasu and land of the Mikawa Busho Samurai warriors that in turn were the very foundation of the Edo Bakufu military government, it remains a place where people meet, and both history and culture continue to be disseminated in the current era.
