Miyanokoshi Post Town


There are many houses displaying the workmanship and the unique styling of Kiso carpenters here as Kiso has its origins in this town. It was the hometown of Yoshinaka Kiso, a warlord, and historic spots associated with him still remain.
The Yoshinaka Museum is located at the site where Yoshinaka Kiso (who is called the warlord of misfortune) grew up and raised an army. Paintings and dolls depict his short but heroic life.
A temple, Tokuonji, stands nearby in honor of the Kiso clan.
