  • [Komiyama Kamanji / Kanmanji Temple] In the past, there were countless small islands around the temple in the sea. The scenery was as good as Matsushima. <神秘に満ちる寺院名> The name of the temple, Jimanji Temple, was connected to the ancient history of Japan. The ship was in distress on the way back to the March 3 of the Japanese mythical era. It seems to have stopped here while being rescued. The spirited stone that Empress Jingu had was Kanju and Manju, which became the temple name of The Temple. <開山とその後> In 19853, the head of the Tendai-za was opened, and in 1804 he was converted to the Soto sect. Matsuo Basho visited this place on a trip to "Okunohosomichi" and enjoyed the superb view. However, in the great earthquake of the first year of culture (1804), the surrounding sea swelled up and became land, and the old island was changed to a small mountain. I can't help changing the landscape, but I thought it was a great place to look back on history enough. [Access] JR Hakoshi Main Line Shogata Station 15 minutes' walk

  • Matsuo Basho visited the museum, and the scenery is also written on the "Oku no Hosomichi". The elephant lagoon (Kisogata) seen by the samurai was a scenery of "islands scattered in the lagoon". However, the island continued to be a continuation of the island because the sea surface was raised and the sea water disappeared during the 1804 Shogata earthquake. In the past, the scenery that Nagisa saw has completely changed, but from the temple grounds, a 5-7km promenade/farm road is visited, and you can visit the "(former) island." This photo is like a "forest of the guardian" that was a conmori because "a small island floating in the lagoon" was raised by the earthquake.
