If you are interested in Japanese history, then this reconstructed check point might be of some interest. It is a modern reproduction and is well done for what it is, but only visit if you are in the area anyway. It isn't worth a special trip, although the old highway and other sites in the area certainly are. Be sure to stroll the ancient highway lined with towering cedars. There is a small museum next door that has some interesting displays showing how the samurai traveled, along with weapons and other artifacts.
Honestly, when we finished with the checkpoint we said, "That's 20 minutes of our life we'll never get back," but like I said, if you are there anyway give it a shot.
