An alternate reading of this highway numeral designation is ji-go-ku. In Japanese, the word jigoku means Hell, and thus some Tahara residents refer to it as ji-go-ku-douro, or the "Highway to Hell". This term gained popularity due to the perception of a higher fatality rate along the road, especially before it was widened and improved.
