We got off at Mikkaichi-cho Station on the Nankai Koya Line and walked around Mikkaichi-juku, Eboshigata Shrine, and the Eboshigata Castle ruins.
We started walking at 9:40 in the morning and returned to the starting point at 12:15. It took me two and a half hours, but I think it would have been faster if I hadn’t been filming.

Anyway, since I started shooting while walking, I don’t mind walking on mountain roads anymore.
Although the number of views is small, I would like to continue it because it is good for my health.

Description of Koya Kaido Mikkaichi Inn:
It is a post town that developed for those who visit Koyasan in the Middle Ages.
In Mikkaichi-cho, Kawachinagano City, there was a post town called ‘Mikkaichi-shuku’ along the Koya Highway.
There were also lodging houses (hatagoya) for people passing through the Koya Kaido to rest and stay overnight.
Mikkaichi-shuku was bustling with people, and there were about 20 inns (meal facilities) such as Kikuya and Kataya. Tourists could not stay overnight.
Among them, Aburaya was used as the headquarters where daimyo and hatamoto stayed.During the Edo period, many people began to visit not only Mt.
The Yagi family’s residence still remains today, and you can get a glimpse of what it was like back then.

Eboshigata Shrine is nearby. Climb some steep stairs. You can also go to the Eboshigata Castle Ruins via here.

There are no buildings on the Eboshigata Castle ruins, but you can see the city of Kawachinagano from here.
