There is steep slope in boundary of 2, Saido, Kounan-ku and 3, Bessho, Minami-ku. "It is in most Tomura and boundary with Bessho-mura called ancient Kamakura Highway and we plant in milestone at that time and do and are matsuichikabuzan reri" and rice cake Isaka (map 1) written down for "forming anew Musashi".

Way interest associate Empress (dokoujukou) that steep slope like these five orders (about 500 meters) seemed to be famous as difficult place in the Middle Ages, and left in Kyoto in 1486 (Bunmei 18) in "pilgrimage notes" (kaikokuzakki),

Let I use without seeing running out of going, but being able to see and eat slope tadawaragutsuniashio

(the gist) We came for rice cake Isaka at last and there was not rice-cake dealer and we lost our footing on muddy road of slope and had trouble even if we thought whether you could eat rice cake and looked around)

We write song called this. It appears to be true to have sold amazake which rice cake does not become in the Edo era, and there is the place name of amazake stand uphill. It is the trace, and way interest associate Empress writes down song of "surikobachi slope", but we went along what kind of way to Kamakura, or it is not revealed that we are reliable. "We need totsuka mi chiku mi, and there are way" and carved Hyakumanben Nenbutsu tower (map 2) in the left aspect "Minami Kamakura way most Tomura" in right side in starting point of rice cake Isaka, but this is signpost indicating "lower way".

In late years it is regretted that scenery colored by fallen leaves peculiar to ancient morality that there was in old days is lost as a lot of apartments were built on Bessho, Minami-ku side. In addition, there is legend that batman (Director General) Yoshimori Wada of Military Headquarters of the Kamakura Shogunate established barrier near rice cake Isaka and still calls both sides whole area of this slope with Wadayama (map 3).

For the sake of south High School, we overlap with "course of busokokukyo" that came from the Serigaya area near bus stop "Sakuradai" when we further go ahead through this way. We reach "tree close to Mt. Aibu Elementary School of room" when we take way to the south. It is said that we come from that tree of room (we have mouse) was planted in busokokukyo and Matsumoto, village boundary of Yoshiwara here. In Nagasaku, "lower way" parts from way of busokokukyo and advances to the west.

"Topographical record of what the roadside to ask" for (revised edition) was issued in October, 1999 by editing of "history society of Konan".
