Tarui - Kiso Kaido (Tarui, Kiso Highway)

Katsuyuki Nishijima


This is the 12th subject he produced Sixty-nine stations of Kiso Highway series. Strong colors and wonderful contrast. Tarui-juku was divided into three parts: western, middle and eastern. Its honjin was located in the middle section. The post town itself served as a major transportation hub for western Mino Province, as it was one endpoint for the Minoji, which connected the Nakasendō with the Tōkaidō at Miya-juku.  It also sat on the banks of the Ai River.
