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.

The "Set Off From NIHONBASHI" project involves discovering symbols in the Nihonbashi area and developing souvenirs based on these motifs. The aim of this initiative is to promote the attractiveness of the town through the purchasers and to encourage new visitors to the area. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from the sales will be used to create a lively atmosphere in Nihonbashi, contributing to the long-term revitalization of the district.
