A waki-honjin is preserved in Maisaka.  This was the second level inn for the use of the samurai who traveled with a daimyo (great lord who was a governor).  To the right is the entrance to the inn.  To the left are large windows that swing up into the rafters so that luggage and kago would be loaded into the inn.
