Wada village of Chiisagata gun located in the upper stream of the Yorita River is presently a typical Kaso village (most of the villagers have gone to the city to work, with a drastic population decrease), with remnants of the juku of the Nakasendo during the middle ages. Wada range is known to be the most difficult pass on the Nakasendo from the past.
