Iwamurada-shuku (岩村田宿 Iwamurada-shuku?) was the twenty-second of the sixty-nine stations of the Nakasendō. It is located in the present-day city of Saku, in Nagano Prefecture, Japan.

History[edit]

Originally, Iwamurada-shuku was a castle town for the Iwamurada Han and, as a post town, it never developed a proper honjin, though it did have some smaller inns.[1]
