Historical heritage of Toride

Toride City is known for its many historic sites. We intend to protect this precious historic heritage to ensure it survives into the future.

The Old Toride-shuku Honjin Someno-ke House (officially appointed inn for feudal lords)

Under the feudal system of the Edo era, feudal lords were required to stay in Edo every other year. Residences of local influential men or wealthy farmers were used as the official designated inns. The role was assigned to the Someno family in Toride.

Honjin was built in 1795. It's the oldest and the largest construction preserved as Honjin(officially appointed inn for feudal lords') on Mito-kaido highway of the Edo era. Items and documents related deeply with the past feudal loads of Mito Tokugawa family are handed down.

Ohori Ferry(小堀の渡し)

The flow of Tone river was reconstructed to prevent the flood at the end of the Meiji era. As a result of this reconstruction, Ohori area became opposite side of the river. Residents of Ohori area arranged a ferryboat as a means of transportation between the Ohori area and the city center. It has been utilized for commuting to work and school, playing an important role in the daily lives of the residents.

Today, it's also used for purpose of tourism.
