Inaba Kaidō

The Inaba Kaidō running through Ōhara-shuku

The Inaba Kaidō (因幡街道) was a route built during the Edo period in Japan. It started in Himeji, Harima Province (modern-day Hyōgo Prefecture), and stretched to Tottori, Inaba Province (modern-day Tottori Prefecture). There were eleven post stations along the route connecting to two cities.

The historical route is now traced by National Routes 2, 29, 179 and 373, as well as Hyōgo's Prefectural Route 724.
