Aizu Nishi Kaid%C5%8D
The Aizu Nishi Kaid? () was a 130 km (81 mi) highway in Japan during the Edo period. It was built to connect Imaichi, Shimotsuke Province (in modern-day Tochigi Prefecture) with Aizuwakamatsu Castle in modern-day Fukushima Prefecture. It is traced by National Route 121 and Fukushima Prefectural Route 131. It was established after Hoshina Masayuki called for the construction of routes connecting the capital of Edo (now Tokyo) with Aizu, the westernmost of the three regions of Fukushima Prefecture.
