Kotsuma Kaido Highway
Back in the Edo period, this road ran from Namba through Kizu and merged with the Kishu highway at Kohama Nakazaike (present-day Higashi-Kohama in Sumiyoshi-ku). The name Kotsuma is a remnant of the name of the village up until the Taisho period?Kotsuma Village, Nishinari-gun?after which the area got its present name, Tamade. The highway was once a bustling thoroughfare; nowadays, it's more suited to a relaxing stroll.
