Kashiya yokocho in Kawagoe, Tõkyõ.
The production of lollies and sweets favoured in Edo (Tõkyõ) began around the end of the Edo period (1600-1868) in Kashiya yokocho in Kawagoe. This area of narrow lane ways was influenced by British and European confectionary.
Kashiya yokocho soon came to supply the entire country and in the early Showa period (1926-1989) there were over 700 stores and confectionary manufacturers.

Hakone Sekisho (Hakone checkpoint), Hakone, Kanagawa prefecture.
Hakone used to be an important checkpoint to control traffic along the Tõkaidõ Road, the highway which linked Edo (Tõkyõ) with Kyõto during the feudal era.
The current gates, buildings and tower were constructed in 2007 based on drawings from the Tokugawa period. The Hakone checkpoint was the 10th of the 53 stations of the Tōkaidō Road from Edo (Tõkyõ).
