Kanakuri Shiso, the "Father of the Marathon" in Japan, grew up in this area and ran 5km each day along this road to his school in the town over, which supposedly helped him become a world-class marathon runner later in life. Kanakuri believed in effort, vitality, and physical fitness, and this path lets you get a sense of his spirit.
