Wada Pass and the Historic Road

Historic Site/Japan Heritage
Famous for its obsidian mine, Wada Pass was also the starting point of the Obsidian Road along which obsidian resources were distributed nationwide from the Paleolithic and Jomon period. Subsequently in the Edo period, the road was developed and became the Nakasendo (Edo-Kyoto Highway), and remains today an important traffic route connecting West and East Japan.
