In 1931、Gyoko road, directly connecting Hayama Imperial Villa with Zushi railway station, for Emperor Hirohito Showa was opened to traffic. Nowadays, Gyoko road is the part of National Road Route 134 (R134), connecting the region of Miura Peninsula with the region of Shonan beach (the seafront of Sagami Bay called Shonan.) Kazahayabashi-intersection is located about the middle of Gyoko road and also of entire R134. Kazahayasabo is active at the corner of the intersection.
Kazahayabashi district is the tact between the foot of Mt. Sengei (+118M) and the River Morito. From the summit of Mt. Sengei we can get a panorama view of Mt. Fuji, Sagami Bay, and Enoshima. The River Morito drains into the sea jus beside the Morito Shrine, and it headstream at Futago-yama mountain range. The flow of the River Morito makes L-shaped turn to the right at Kazahayabashi district. Because of the river breeze came from the L-shaped turn the climate of Kazahayabashi is comfortable even at daytime of midsummer.
Prior to the opening of Gyoko road in1931 Kazahayabashi district had been a kind of hidden paradise. In 1925, a wooden building was constructed, at the site of demolished Seihoin temple, as the home of Gisuke Yajima who worked as a master of villa construction in Hayama.
In 2017, the good old wooden building was renovated as per Kazahayasabo's design concepts for accommodating guests while the original parts of the building preserved at the maximum. You are welcome to stop by the space, from which wooden warmth is perceived, in a corner of R134 for blown' in the Kazahaya wind. We are looking forward to seeing you.
