Taken inside the Futagawa Honjin. This is the post town of Futagawa in the province of Mikawa (present day Toyohashi City, Aichi Prefecture) If you were approaching Futagawa from Edo, it was the 33rd of 53 post towns along the Tōkaidō Road. In its hey-day, the town hosted one honjin inn for daimyo, imperial messengers and other people of importance and 30 hatago inns for other travelers.
