Ōmachi Ōji at Geba

Ōmachi Ōji (大町大路?) is the name of a street in Kamakura, Kanagawa, Japan, which begins at Geba Yotsukado and ends at the Nagoshi Pass.[1] It takes its name from the district of Ōmachi, which it crosses. At the time of the shogunate it was the most important road that went from east to west.[1] The entertainment and red-light district of the city used to be at the intersection between Komachi Ōji and Ōmachi Ōji.[1] The branch of the street that from the intersection goes in the opposite direction is called Yuigahama Ōdori (Yuigahama Avenue). On it stand temples like An'yō-in and Ankokuron-ji.
