Shōno-juku established an archives museum in 1998 in one of the former honjin to share the story of the old post station. It contains information on Shōno-juku's honjin, other buildings and aspects of daily life. In addition to the restored honjin, there are also ruins for the sub-honjin, toiyaba and kōreiba.
The classic ukiyo-e print by Andō Hiroshige (Hōeidō edition) from 1831 to 1834 depicts a group of travelers with straw raincoats and umbrellas, caught in a sudden summer thunderstorm and hurrying towards shelter.
