• The Ooi-juku 1/2

The Ooi-juku was a lodging place that prospered to a great many among the Mino-16juku. In the road passing through the lodging, there are as many as six “Masugata”, That "Masugata" means bending the road at right angles to prevent enemy invasion. The road width remains at that time.
