●Araisekisyo [country designation special historic spot] Map http://g.co/maps/wyzx5
Araisekisyo (Imagire Sekisyo) was founded in 1600 by (1600) Ieyasu Tokugawa. The Shogunate established 53 places of Sekisyo in the whole country to keep the Edo era and supervised for "gun on their way to Edo and woman passing through a checkpoint to a local district" strictly. As for the Araisekisyo in particular, the best security precaution was established as the Shogunate direct control for approximately 100 years. "Bill" toward Edo for women ("woman passing through a checkpoint to Edo") was necessary, and, let alone by traffic of weapon including gun, only our Sekisyo was not able to go if defect was found.
Our Sekisyo was in the middle of the Edo era, and transfer of twice was forced to by natural disaster. After previous building collapsed by earthquake of (1854) in 1854, building ("aspect guard station") to stay at the present was rebuilt by (1858) in 1858. Sekisyo was abolished in (1869) in 1869, but we hung in Meiji - Showa era and were used as school and town office, and historic value as Sekisyo which building at the time just remained alone in Japan was appreciated, and we were appointed some other time on "special historic spot" in (1955) on "historic spot" of (1921) country in 1955 in 1921 by country.
