A view of the travelers resting in Wada range in Wadajuku, the most difficult pass on the Nakasendo. Tea houses line along the Nishimochiya, and was a resting spot for travelers going over the Wada range. In the winter, there was 3 meters of snowfall, and going over the range was terribly difficult.
