This Edo period post town flourished along the Nakasendō because it also connected with Kurihangaidō (九里半街道), a trade road that connected the northwestern shores of Lake Biwa with Kohama[disambiguation needed]. Along with Tarui-juku, it was the first post town of the Five Routes of Edo to be serviced by cars.
