Himekaidou is the road connecting Shizuoka(Mitsuke) and Aichi(Goyu).Official name is Honzakadouri.HonzakaTouge is rough spot in Himekaidou. Maybe Honzaka etymology is Honosaka(Rich country slope).It prospered from the late Middle Ages to the early modern times. However, when the Tokaido was constructed by the Edo Shogunate, the number of people using Motozaka-dori, which crosses a steep mountain, has decreased.Therefore, Tokaido, a highway, is considered a man, and Wakido Motozaka-dori is considered a woman.From this time Motozaka-dori was called 「Himekaidou」

In the 1st year of Meiji, the new government abolished the various road barriers and the era of old highways was over.
