Imasu-juku (今須宿 Imasu-juku) was the fifty-ninth of the sixty-nine stations of the Nakasendō. It is located in the present-day town of Sekigahara, Fuwa District, Gifu Prefecture, Japan.
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. Along with Tarui-juku, it was the first post town of the Five Routes of Edo to be serviced by cars.
In 1843, the post station had 1,784 residents and 464 buildings. Among the buildings, there was one honjin, two sub-honjin, and 13 hatago.
