Yakage-town was a prosperous 18th post-station situate on the Sanyo-do Road.
There were a majestic honjin (hostel for daimyo), and waki honjin (sub-honjin,used by a daimyo’s attendants) in which daimyo (samurai lords) stayed on their trips for Sankin Kotai (system of alternate attendance to Edo) duties.
These two residences rarely still remain now in its original condition.

矢掛は,旧山陽道の18番目の宿場として繁栄した宿場町です。
江戸と本国との間の参勤交代の大名が宿泊した本陣と脇本陣の双方が,現在に至るまで,当時の姿をとどめて残されており,これら両方が国の重要文化財に指定されているのは全国でも矢掛宿だけだそうで、極めて貴重な歴史的遺産といえるでしょう。
