Hirakata City 枚方宿 Hirakata shuku in Osaka
Located along the Kyo Kaido, once the main route linking Osaka and Kyoto (Edo Period: 17 - 18th centuries), Hirakata Post Station was one of the most famous post towns (relay station) in its day, and the site of many inns. From years long past, the city prospered as a distribution center for goods carried by boats on the Yodo River, and even today it still retains the bustling atmosphere of the common people that has made it famous.

The photograph here shows one example, "Kagiya," once an inn and restaurant, which we have converted into a cultural reference museum.
