Site of the Nagasaki-Tokyo Railway Post Office Station
Replacing the hikyaku courier system where workmen carried letters, money, and small packages to their destinations, Japan's railway postal service first began on March 1, 1871 when a line was opened between Tokyo and Osaka. It eventually made its way to Nagasaki on December 5 of that same year, and would extend to almost all of Japan by July 1872. Although communications between Nagasaki and Tokyo normally took 190 hours under the hikyaku system, this station, with relays in Tokaido, Sanyodo, and Saikaido, shortened the time needed to 95 hours. In 1872 the Nagasaki Post Office was established here and eventually renamed the Motohakata Post Office in 1875.
