Excerpt from "The History of Hometown －Fuchu from the Perspective of Ruins and Cultural Properties－"
In the Edo period, the Tokaido and other five highways were used as trunk lines, and the side highways connecting to them, the transportation network where wakiokan spread like branches and leaves, and the accompanying inn station system were established.
The Sekishu Kaido is emphasized as a road leading to the Omori Ginzan Daikansho (Oda City, Shimane Prefecture) under the direct control of the Shogunate, and the road width is 7 shaku (2.1 m), and inn stations are located in Fuchu City Village, Joge Village, and Yoshisha Village. , The horseman's foot was permanently installed.At Kisa-juku, it merged with the Izumo Highway, and after passing through the Akana Pass, it was divided to the west and became the Ginzan Kaido, leading to Omori Ginzan and Yunotsu Port.This route was used by officials of the Omori Daikansho for various purposes such as transporting the annual tribute silver of the Shogunate territory to Osaka, assignment and departure, and returning to Osaka with the transportation silver of Omori Ginzan.It also seems to have been used to transport the honey (large honey) sent from Ishishu to Edo.
