A village near the Wadajuku. Houses with stones on the roofs to protect them from the strong winds can be seen together with some villagers. Wadajuku was an important place of transport from the early days with the most difficult Wada range pass on the Nakasendo at range. After the Meiji era, it was not a part of the main avenues of travel, so development was hopeless.
