Hakone Checkpoint (Hakone Sekisho)

Travel Guide - Hakone Checkpoint (Hakone Sekisho)


During the Edo period (1603 – 1868), a nationwide road network was developed in Japan; along the way many Sekisho (checkpoints) were established for the purpose of inspecting travelers and loads. Hakone Sekisho, established in 1619, was one of the most important checkpoints to protect Edo (Tokyo) from the western part of Japan.
The current buildings on the site are historically accurate restorations. A small museum displays artifacts of that era, such as travel certificates, officials' diaries and samurai weaponry. A few minutes' walk to the north along Route 1 is a remaining section the ancient trail that travelers of the Edo period passed along. It is flanked with imposing cedar trees said to be more than 350 years old.
