Area Map

Soka
Soka used to prosper as a post town on the Nikko Kaido highway during the Edo Period. The avenue of pine trees along the highway made the town famous as Soka Matsubara, literally a pine avenue of Soka. Now a stone-paved, 1.5 kilometer-long walking trail is prepared and is popular among the locals as a place for relaxation and refreshment. As rice cultivation was popular in the Edo Period, Soka senbei rice cracker became a very famous local specialty. About fifty years ago a series of constructions of large scale multi-unit apartments started, and the city’s population has rapidly grown, transformed the rural area to a commuter town of Tokyo. However, now the city is under another renovation including the reconstruction of the deteriorated apartments and redevelopment of the townscape to retain the old post town ambience. You will see a reborn Soka City.
