Map of Fujisawa Shuku (Maita Honjin Ato)
Fujisawa-juku is a post town on the old Tokaido road, which was established during the Edo period. It is the sixth post town counting from Nihonbashi between (about 1340 m) the Edo-fang mitsuke of Yugyo-ji-zaka and the Kyoto-fang mitsuke. There are many shrines and temples that remind us of the past around Yugyoji Temple, the head temple of the Jishu sect. In the Meiji period (1868 - 1912), the former Fujisawa-juku district was transformed into a wholesale area and prospered, taking advantage of its geographical advantage. Some of the historical buildings from Meiji and Taisho still remain today.
