matsumoto-toge Hajikami-toge Pass forms the boundary between Kii-Nagashimacho and Miyama-cho. A national highway (Route 42) and the JR Kisei Line run through the tunnel right below the Pass. The starting point is at the back of the power station called“Miyagawa Daini Hatsudensho”. This route was recently reconstructed by the local community and even offers free walking sticks. The area is breathtaking in spring when the trail is covered with cherry blossoms. One has a panoramic view of the sea, where a path used in the Meiji Period, on thenorthside of Route 42 meets with a path used during the Edo Period, on the southside of Route 42. On the pass Suzuki Bokushi created the following Haiku:
