福島県大内宿の風景

Ouchi-juku (Ōuchi-juku), located in Shimogo-cho, Minamiaizu-gun, Fukushima Prefecture japan, is a post town(Syuku-ba) for semi-agricultural and semi-inns built on the Aizu Nishi Kaido during the Edo period.
The Aizu Nishi Kaido was a edomain road in the Edo period that connected Aizu Wakamatsu City in Fukushima Prefecture, where Aizu Wakamatsu Castle is located, and Nikko City in Tochigi Prefecture.
However, the Aizu Nishi Kaido became dysfunctional due to the severe crackdown on the side road traffic by the Edo Shogunate and the collapse caused by the 1683 Nikko Earthquake, and the role as a main road was transferred to the Aizu Naka Kaido.
After that, the Aizu Nishi Kaido, which had been dysfunctional due to the collapse of the dammed lake due to heavy rain, was restored.
However, it is believed that the Aizu Nakakaido has already played a role as an alternative route, and as a result, Ouchi-juku has become a “half-agricultural and half-inn.”
At the same time as the railway opened due to modernization, Ouchi-juku lost its role as a post town.
Due to the subsequent hard conservation activities, it has become a popular tourist attraction visited by tourists not only from Japan but also from all over the world as a traditional building preservation district that retains the atmosphere of the Edo period.
