Azuma Kaido


Azuma Kaido used to be one of the main roads in the Mutsu

Azuma Kaido used to be one of the main roads in the Mutsu region before the Ohshu kaido was built. The road used to be called Tousandou in ancient times, Okutaidou in the medieval period, and then renamed Azuma Kaido in the Edo period. It ran through Sengen, Kitame, Kasashima, Shiote, Minowa, Kumanodou, across the Natori river, and finally to the regional government Taga. The route has changed accordingly with the era but there are many ruins and tales along the route.
