Ōshū Kaidō 奥州街道 Oshu Kaido
connecting Edo with the Mutsu Province in Tohoku
and then further North up to Hokkaido


- The first 27 stations of the Ōshū Kaidō

- quote -
... one of the five routes of the Edo period. It was built to connect Edo (modern-day Tokyo) with Mutsu Province and the present-day city of Shirakawa, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. It was established by Tokugawa Ieyasu for government officials traveling through the area.
- Subroutes
In addition to the established use of traveling from Edo to Mutsu Province, there were also many roads that connected from the Ōshū Kaidō. One such sub-route was the Sendaidō (仙台道), which connected Mutsu Province with Sendai. The terminus for the Sendaidō is in Aoba-ku in modern Sendai. From there, the Matsumaedō (松前道) connected Sendai with Hakodate, Hokkaidō.
Though the Ōshū Kaidō has only 27 post stations, there were over 100 designated post stations when the subroutes are included.

koromo no seki 衣ノ関 the gate of the robe (of Ono no Komachi)
Along the old Oshu Kaido near the iron bridge over the river Shiroishigawa 白石川鉄橋 there is 一本の老松 an old pine. North of it is the temple 東禅寺 Tozen-Ji with the remains of the "Gate of the Robe". The mountain name of the temple is 衣関山.
In the temple are relics related to Ono no Komachi in 観音堂 the Kannon Hall.
The pine is also called 小野小町手掛松.
The tree has been cut down around 1700, because it was a problem for the people traveling here. But the man who used the ax to cut the tree died in no time.
The priest of the temple also turned crazy and died soon afterwards.
