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.
