The city of Owase is one of the rainiest places in Japan but the large paving stones seemingly woven along this path protect it from water erosion. For those who have time and energy for an extra side course, you can make your way up to the peak, Tengura-san, about 30 min. from the pass, or Binshi-yama about 2 hrs. from the pass. They both command breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and the Sea of Kumano dotted with islands.
