- Japanese: 四日市 (Yokkaichi)
In the 1690s, Englebert Kaempfer recorded that he counted some one thousand homes in Yokkaichi, making it ten times as large as some smaller post-towns (such as Sakashita-juku), though of course still far smaller than some others (such as the castletowns of Nagoya and Odawara).
