2. Quiet and calm place!

3. Good exercise walking from Shimada station!

Shimada Station

South exit at Shimada station

The convenience store, Seven-Eleven, is close to the station. I did not take a picture of it.

Let’s go west for the time being.

Entrance of Kawagoshi Ruins

West: Fujieda city, East: Kanaya city

After cross overpass, I found out the monument.

I get the feeling that Kawagoshi Ruins is coming.

Arrived at Kawagoshi Ruins

I feel as if I time-traveled to Edo period.

When people of Edo period crossed the Oi river, they rode on Rendai which is like carriage.

Four people carried like above picture.

They could not cross the river by themselves because the river was very wide.

But now, we can cross it by car about 1 or 2 minutes.

Kawagoshi ruins is said “Kawagoshi iseki” in Japanese.


This place is near the Kawagoshi Ruins.

There is Oi river near there.

The letter is written on the stone, “This place is Kawagoshi open space.”

I’m sure that you can feel relax by Shimada rich in nature.
