Ago-no-Watashi (Ago Ferry Crossing)
The "Ago-no-Watashi" ferry which crosses the Hiki River can be found by heading towards the Kumano Kodo Ohechi Hotokezaka.
It is believed to have been in operation until 1954 (year 29 of the Showa era).
At present, the Ohechi Ago-no-Watashi Preservation Society has restored the ferry and operates it.
There is a detour which crosses Kuchigatani Bridge downstream.
