Tokaido Seki-Juku Festival in Kameyama, Mie Prefecture
Step into Seki-Juku and back in time and a whole bunch of excitement as you wander up and down this traditional rest stop on the old Tokaido. Experience delicious snacks and food while enjoying the beautiful floats, costumes and buildings. Seki-Juku, a part of the old Tokaido, has a rich history and was traveled by many people as they moved from one part of Japan to another. The Tokaido runs from the Kanto area (near Tokyo) to Southern Mie Prefecture.
