Satta Pass

From here, you can see the landscape that has not changed since the 18th century. Historically, it was a challenging spot with the ocean encroaching around the mountain and many landslides.

■Things to see

  • Path in Satta Pass(HISTORIC SITE)
    The view of Mt. Fuji across the ocean from the pass is amazing. The pass was extremely challenging such that even the parents could not look back to check on the children. In order to secure a safe passage through here, various routes have been designed across history.
    The envoys from Korea traveled through this pass during their visits when the Shogun position changed.
  • “Koike Tei” (House of a headman of Tokaido)(HISTORIC BUILDING)
    The house, built in the 19th century, has been remodeled and is serving as a resting spot for the tourists.
  • Bogakutei Fujiya(HISTORIC BUILDING)
    This tea house has been watching over the pass for over 500 years. This is a private property but is open to the public.
