Yunoyama Kaido Historic Road

Yunoyama Kaido Historic Road

Old scenery maintained to the present day

In the Heian period (794-1185), the road connecting the hot springs of Arima and Himeji through Miki was developed and used as a bypass of the Sanyo Road. During the siege of Miki Castle in the warring states period, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, having learned about the Arima Hot Springs, had the spring water from Arima brought to Abuta district in Miki for the wounded soldiers to bathe in and recuperate. Another famous episode is that the strategist, Hanbei Takenaka, passed through this road on his way to a recuperation site.This historic road where the old streetscape remains is called the Yunoyama Kaido Historic Road (hot spring mountain road) in memory of days gone by.
