The road is 1.2 kilometers long and was built at the time of Tadamasa Mori, the first leader of the Tsuyama clan. Originally, to make the enemies think the road had come to a dead end, the road bends a lot like a key. More than 160 buildings along the road are left as traditional architecture reminders of the early modern period.
In the Edo Period, there were many merchant houses. Even today, there are still old stores which started running from that time.
