Sendaidō

Jump to: navigation, search

The Sendaidō (仙台道?) was a subroute of the Ōshū Kaidō, one of the Edo Five Routes of Japan. It connected the Ōshū Kaidō's terminus in Shirakawa and Mutsu Province with Sendai. It was established by Tokugawa Ieyasu for government officials traveling through the area.

Stations of the Sendaidō[edit]

The 41 post stations along the Sendaidō are listed below in order and are divided by their modern-day prefecture. The present day municipality is listed afterwards in parentheses. The Matsumaedō connects the end of the Sendaidō with the northern tip of modern-day Aomori Prefecture.
