Townscape of the Unno-juku.(post-town).
Unno-juku used to be the post-town on the road of the Hokkoku-kaido road,which was posted by the Edo Shogunate in the early Edo period
The main street is about 650 meters in length, and honjin (officially appointed inn), and waki honjin (sub-honjin) were established for court nobles and samurai to stay and rest along the street.
Unno-juku thrived as a key point for transportation of the gold from the Sado Gold Mine to Edo (Tokyo) , as the stopping place of the travelers to visit the Zenkoji-Temple, and were used for Sankin Kotai (daimyo’s alternate-year residence in Edo) of the lord of the Hokuriku district.
In the Meiji period, Unno-juku lost its function as a post-town, so, people ventured into the silkworm business. This new business was a big success.Silkworms raised in Unno were highly revered by the Japanese silk industry as well as by overseas customers.
Fire was used to warm the silkworks, so each house had to be provided with fire prevention walls called “Udatsu”, which extend out from the 2nd floor. For extraction of smoke in the house, a small roof called “Kinuki” was added on top of the main roof.
At present, the Unno-juku is selected as a national preservation district for a group of historic buildings.

長野・東御市、海野宿の街並みです。
海野(うんの)宿は、江戸初期に、江戸幕府によって設置された、北国街道の宿場町です。
約6町(650M)にわたり街並みが続き、本陣や脇本陣が設けられて、佐渡の金の江戸までの輸送や、善光寺詣での参拝客、北陸の大名の参勤交代などで利用されて繁栄したそうです。明治時代に入り、宿場としての役割を終えた後も、養蚕業で栄えました。

現在、北国街道は「日本の道100選」に選ばれ、海野宿も、重要伝統的建物群保存地区に指定されています。
