In 1993 the village of Akasawa-juku in Hayakawa-cho, Yamanashi, was designated an 'Important Cultural Buildings Preservation District' because of its old wooden inns. The village stood on the Minobu Post Road, and once welcomed pilgrims traveling to sacred Mount Minobu and Mount Shichimen in the Edo Period. The inns also hosted Nichiren Buddhist study groups through the Meiji Period. Today only Edoya Inn still offers accommodation, but visitors can still enjoy the fine old buildings in their beautiful mountain setting.
