Until the opening of National Route 33, Kyū-Tosa Kaidō — the old route to Tosa (present day Kōchi Prefecture), which connects Kuma and Matsuyama — served as the Henro pilgrimage route as well. Sakamoto-ya, an inn for Henro pilgrims that had fallen into decay after closing its doors, was restored by residents of the local area in 2004 and has now been revived as a place where travelers on the Henro pilgrimage can interact with the local community. On weekends, visitors making the pilgrimage on foot are greeted with o-settai (spiritually-motivated hospitality) provided by volunteers, bringing back scenes of bustling activity to the site as in days of yore.
