  • Kaijin Shrine is the Shrine of Hachimangu Shrine in Toyohara, the sosha of Tsushima Kuniichinomiya, and Ichinomiya Shrine, which is paired with Kaijin Shrine. The mythical legend of Empress Jingu is enshrined.

  • There was word of mouth that the stairs were serious, but it was not such a thing because it climbed in the shade of a tree. I also got the power of nature. The place was almost too far from the sea.

  • Tsushima Buddha statue theft case. In 2012, two Buddha statues of important cultural property were continuously stolen by three Korean thieves from three temples in Tsushima City, Nagasaki prefecture of Japan. The court in South Korea decided to refuse to return the stolen Buddha statue to Japan. One body was refunded. However, 1 body has not yet returned. It is a diplomatic matter between Japan and South Korea. In November 2014, another Buddha statue theft incident occurred in Tsushima. On October 8, 2012, three important cultural assets were stolen by eight Korean thieves. On January 29, 2013, five Korean thieves were arrested by the Korean police on charges of theft and smuggling. And two Buddha statues were found in Korea.Currently, the Korean court refuses to return virtually.
  • This is a place where you can feel the atmosphere of a "gentleman" that is surprisingly large and historic. It may be a "historical distortion" for Korean history as it relates to the legend of the new panic. There are roads and facilities around the shrine where you can observe the birds. If you can afford it, it's a good idea to wander around the walkway and observe the bird.
