National Route 41.

I've never ridden it but I've driven it. Generally, national routes (国道) are rather busy with trucks and other commercial traffic, except on Sundays and public holidays. There are some short tunnels that are unavoidable, but the long tunnels can be detoured-around. For cycling, where there is an alternative parallel road it's likely to have more local flavor and less traffic (but possibly more traffic lights) than the main drag.
