STORY

The Hakone Hachiri is a historical route of the Tokaido road that runs from east to west across Mt. Hakone and is portrayed in famous poems and songs as “the most treacherous in the world.” During the Edo era (1603-1868) the Hakone Hachiri was the main trunk route constructed to support the bustling crowds that journeyed back and forth on regular trips to the capital of Yedo and was paved with cobblestones making it the largest such road in Japan. The memories and footprints of many historical figures remain on this road; from the Saigoku Daimyo, head of the Dutch Trading Post; emissaries from Korea, the Nagasaki magistrate and many others. Take a walk along the path to witness the teahouses, toll gates, old post towns and rows of trees lining the way, enticing visitors to experience the history and atmosphere of the Edo period.
