However, since the time of Tokugawa Noriyori, founder of the Kishu-han Fief of the Tokugawa Shogunate, Nisaka-toge Pass route lying to the east became the formal entry to the Province. Presently Route 42 and the JR Kisei Line also cross Nisaka-toge Pass. Nisaka-toge Station to Nisaka-toge Pass runs along Route 42. From the pass a natural winding path leads down past nearby Okimi-daira, a popular viewing spot.
