  • Yoshinaka Temple located along the Tokaido road. Ogurayama took by surprise by awatsuhara Kiso yoshinaka was to be hostile and the late Minamoto no Yoritomo during the Heian period is unknown but then bury remains of yoshinaka Tomoe gozen, a founder.

Just at that time love Kiso yoshinaka and yoshinaka Temple haiku poet Matsuo Basho, often visited this place and visit. By Wills 'from (the corpse), Kiso mounds send it!' was buried beside the grave of yoshinaka was Matsuo Basho died at upper end.

But that common point is 900 years between tells the visitors the facts have not changed. That are differently perceived by visitors would "require the same" not to feel uncomfortable. Seems like a place where such a strange feeling to receive a must.

  • I said now's Temple in the town, but once the old Tokaido road facing Lake Biwa. You can stand at Shakespeare Hall of Awazu original scenic spots of the bygone days, Shinobu. In Weng Chapel ceiling painting seasonal flowers become a folding map (reproduction). A small temple in Kiso yoshinaka Park, Basho's father's grave in the quiet to pray; Across the bridge and return to the zeze station along the National Highway No. 1 line "Dragon's haiku Hill Cemetery" also we want to visit. Preferred times to ban crush but recommended by train.
