Honjin originally meant a lodging for military leaders; however, the meaning gradually expanded to include lodgings and rest places for feudal lords and court nobles in and after the Sengoku Period (end of the 15th century – end of the 16th century). In the Edo Period (1602-1868), feudal lords stayed at these while traveling to and from Edo to serve the Shogun. There was a honjin in Uenohara-juku. The gate of the honjin remains and has a sign that reads “Former Honjin Ruins.”
