It was a mountain pass at an altitude of 1,358m on the border with Iida City, and was the route of the Odaira Highway connecting Nakasendo and Iida.
In 1936, the poet Mokichi Saito headed for Iida from Midono over this pass to attend the Araragi poetry.
At this time, 17 songs entitled “Odaira Pass” were sung, and a monument engraved with one of them was erected near the Kisomi Chaya on the Nagiso side.
The autumn sunset overlooking the entire mountain from the Kisomi Chaya on the Odaira Pass, which has been certified as one of the 100 best sunset points in Shinshu, dyes the surroundings in a cotton-colored and golden color, inviting you to a mysterious world.
