Geocache Description:

"kinu no Michi" opens a port in 1859 Yokohama, and is one of the routes where a lot of raw silk for export is carried afterwards for the period when the railway develops about the middle of the Meiji era. It had been said in old times, "Kanagawa ohkan" or "Hama-kaidoh". Hachioji City is specifying about 1.5km from "Kinu no Michi" Stone monument to "gotenn-bashi" for the historic site. Some cache was put on the way of Kinu no Michi.

The section from "Kinu no Michi stone monument" to "Koushinn-zuka" not paved leaves traces of past.
This section is chosen to be "Field of 100 histories" that Agency for Cultural Affairs selects.
