Mihara-dori St. is situated on what was once a middle section of the old Toakido road which connected the post station towns of Shinagawa-juku and Kawasaki-juku. From the Edo period, the street bustled as what was called an "ai no shuku" - an unofficial post station town between official post station towns. This section of the Tokaido traversed three “hara” districts of the former village of Omori almost perfect north-south, and thus was called the Mihara-dori (“Three Hara Street”). Even today, traces of the old Tokaido can still be found on Mihara-dori St. (whose name is now written with the character for “beautiful” instead of “three”). Work up a good sweat while taking in the vestiges of the Tokaido.
