Ochiai-juku, located between Nakatsugawa-juku and Magome-juku. In the center of Ochiai-juku, is a stronghold where high ranking people stayed. Constructed in 1818, it remains unchanged since then.
Today's Ochiai-juku is not a busy tourist destination, but a quiet place where you can imagine the bustle of the old post town.
Attractions include Zenshoji Temple, with its impressive pine trees by the gate, and Kofukuji Temple, known for its beautiful mossy gardens and famous for its cherry blossoms. These historic temples offer personal experiences such as zazen (meditation) and hand-written sutras for tourists.
