The course includes many highlights on its way towards Hamamatsu Castle, such as Lord Tokugawa Hidetada's birth well, the water of which was used to give the second shogun, Hidetada, his first bath after being born; and Tsubakihime Kannon, which was built in memory of the chatelaine, Otazunokata, of Hikuma Castle who died in battle against the Tokugawa army to protect the castle.
