Kohama developed as a semi-fortified town built around Gōshōji Temple at the end of the 15th century. In the Edo Period (1603–1867) it thrived as a post-station town where the Arima-kaidō, Nishinomiya-kaidō, and Kyō-fushimi-kaidō routes converged. Houses with mushikomado windows on the upper floor still retain the atmosphere of those days. You can also find traces of inns and bashaku horse-drawn cargo carriers. Historical materials are exhibited in the Kohamajuku Museum.
