KaiIchikawaJinya (3).JPG


Ichikawa-jin'ya was established in 1764 as the centre of administration of a tenryō (Shogunal territory) covering the counties of Koma and Yatsushiro, which between them made up more than half of Kai Province (the other half of Kai was also controlled by the Shogunate). At the time, the jin'ya, also referred to as the Ichikawa-daikansho, was an imposing building that housed not only the offices of the deputies, but also those of the deputy superintendent and public officials.

Visit Notes

The site of Ichikawa-jin'ya is very close to Ichikawa-Honmachi station so, since I had ten minutes before my train came, I quickly checked it out. There is a sign post to mark the site but otherwise nothing else to see related to it. Next to the empty plot which marks the centre of the jin'ya - and looks like a brownfield site - there is a small park. Opposite is a lovely old house.
