Distance & Time
About 5km, About 2hrs. and 30mins.: From Kata Station to Nigishima Station

This trail is passing Hobo-toge Pass. This pass was the boundary between Shima Country and Kii Country. It is said that the name of "Jirozaka" is from "Jiryo," and "Tarozaka" is from "Taryo." ("zaka" means slope.) In Japanese, "Jiryo" means "own land", and "Taryo" means "other's land."
This trail has some good stone path, and there is site of "Sekisyo," a cheking point in feudal era Japan, and so on.
Many part of this trail was reconstructed by the man living in Kata-cho. As same as other trails of "Ise-ji Route," this trail was taken care of by local people.
