What are the zero milestones in Japan?
The zero milestones were set up in various cities and towns across Japan, serving as reference points for measuring distances to other locations. They were established based on the Old Road Law, enacted in 1919. They also serve as the starting points for the Five Main Routes (Tokaido, Nakasendo, Nikko Kaido, Oshu Kaido, Koshu Kaido). Additionally, the signs on national highways stating "〇 km to Tokyo" indicate the distance to the Zero Milestone in Nihonbashi, Tokyo.
