Akasaka-juku (赤坂宿 Akasaka-juku) was the fifty-sixth of the sixty-nine stations of the Nakasendō. It is located in the present-day city of Ōgaki, Gifu Prefecture, Japan. It flourished during the Edo Period, as it was located in a fertile valley, next to a river.
Today, you are able to see the old row houses and historical ruins from this Edo period post town. Also, for a more detailed look at the old post town, a virtual tour has been created, which introduces the area at the beginning of the Tōkaidō and Nakasendō; in 1680, during the Enpō era; at the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate; and in modern times.
