An insight to travel during the time of the samurai
The Hakone Sekisho is a wonderful reproduction of one of the most famous barrier checkpoints that dotted the Tokaido Road and other areas in Japan. During the reign of the Tokugawa Shogunate, travel was strictly restricted to prevent any type of insurrection to their power. Places like the Hakone Sekisho kept the movement of women, children, and arms to a minimum. The Sekisho lies on the shores of beautiful Lake Ashi with views of Mt. Fuji and the nature of Hakone.
