The largest succession dispute to break out in ancient Japanese history occurred in 672. A dispute between Prince Oama and Prince Otomo over the imperial succession to the throne erupted into a fierce battle here in Sekigahara. Today, both princes are venerated at respective memorial Shinto shrines.
Nakasendo, one of the roadways of the Edo period passed through Sekigahara. Many travelers rested and stayed at the Sekigahara-juku or Imasu-juku and stone lanterns and lines of pine trees still remain today as historic landmarks.
