During the Edo period, as the nearby post towns, such as Mitake-juku and Ōta-juku, began to flourish, Fushimi-juku was built up to take part in the popular travel route. However, because a national highway goes directly over the spot where the old post town was located, there are no traces of the old row houses that spanned approximately 600 m (1,969 ft).
