To enter from the side at the Kushida Shrine to the “KOKUTAI-DOURO” road Near the intersection It is the place where an alternation is done by the public by the “TAIHAKU-DORI” road.

The Susaki wholesale district ( The home ) It is possible to appreciate the that the moving that the sense of fulfillment after the goal is crowded with the place with the last taken last spurt is done moment.

The recommendation inspection spot of “SYUDAN-YAMAMISE” is as follows.

The side of the inland in ” Nishioohashi ” which spans Nakagawa The individual can survey straight from Gofuku-machi which is a start spot to the distance, being the place where the “MEIJI-DOROI” road which was stretched, becoming becomes a gentle curve. Also, because this place is the top which was made an acclivity from downhill which is gentle far, it is the place where to survey the whole “MEIJI-DOROI” road is made.
