The town of Hodogaya was originally three separate post-stations. In 1597, the Tokugawa Shogunate united these rural villages into a single country town. Wooded hills and the low rice fields of Totsuka stretch into the horizon, while in town, a restaurant advertises soba, or buckwheat noodles, to hungry travelers.
