About "Saba kaido": Word-for-word is Road of Mackerel.|
This road leads to Kyoto from Wakasa Obama in the Japan Sea side by way of Kutsuki village and Ohara. This road was called "Saba kaido" because Mackerels were transported to Kyoto from Obama harbor by this road in the Edo period. This road was not only road for transporting marine products but also road of cultural exchange that continue 50 miles along beautiful streams. (Photo is former road in Ichiba.)
The Kutsuki village is the only village in Shiga prefecture and it is located the middle reaches of the Adogawa River. The main stream of Adogawa River is light, open stream and shallow. This river is mostly fishing area of Ayu (Sweet fish), but it has many rivers in the valleys and big tributaries that are Harihata River, Asohgawa River and Kitagawa River. Amagos and Iwanas live in those rivers. Asoh and Jishihara were village of the wooden turner at one time. The Adogawa River bends to the east at Ichiba village and flows into Lake Biwa.
Kutsuki village amalgamated with Takashima-cho, Adogawa-cho, Shinasahi-cho, Imazu-cho, and Makino-cho and became Takashima City on January 1, 2005.
