Named after a fishing village with a "deep cove" in the Edo period, this land is home to the Nishikunihama Kaido and the Totoya Michi leading to Arima. It was also a crossroads of traffic. The beautiful blue color expresses the lifestyle that connects the past and the future, which can be felt from the history and the modern architecture of the Hanshinkan modernism era in recent years.
