The "salt road" is the road used to carry salt, marine products, etc. from the coast to the inland, and from the inland, to carry agricultural products such as rice grains and miscellaneous grains to the coast. Since ancient times, there have been many salt roads connecting the sea and mountains throughout Japan, and they have been important lifestyle paths.

In Iwate Prefecture, a large amount of salt was transported over the Kitakami Highlands to the Kitakami River basin, further divided into the Ou Mountains, and transported to Sawauchi and Kazuno in Akita Prefecture. Since it was mainly cows that carried salt etc., "Shio no Michi" is also called "Beko (cow) road". This special exhibition is an opportunity to look back on the activities of cows (cowmen and cow chasers) and cows who came and went along the coast and inland while following the salt path, and to look at the development process of shorthorn cows that Iwate is proud of and the life at that time. will do.
