Higechaya-oiwake (髭茶屋追分)

Higechaya-oiwake was a point in the Yamashina Basin, where Otsukaido Road diverges from Tokaido (it was also called Yamashina-oiwake). It is the present-day border between Otsu City and Kyoto City.

When referring to Tokaido Gojusan-tsugi (Fifty-Three Stages in Tokaido Road), Tokaido does not head towards Sanjo Ohashi Bridge from Otsu-juku Station, but turns southwestward, and headed to Fushimi-juku Station (Kyo Kaido Road).
