  • Mountains that toyoshige (briefly on why this temple. Temple's role like the current hotels, such as hotel and Conference Center offers at that time) Temple at the Court of katsu kaishu, impossible of description, as 'ryoma êi' from when ryoma dappan sins to none. Thou shalt not laugh to this temple. Because it cannot attract gotta tame even the slightest buzz to be tourist destinations in the region is obsessed.

  • The Temple of the Jodo Shinshu was built 0/1559 (1559). 0/1863 (1863) 1/16 mountain in the 宝福 Temple during their visit to ask forgiveness for the sin of Sakamoto ryoma dappan toyoshige kaishu's visits here. Ryoma is waiting for good news at the town Inn, said. This is also known as tojin okichi grave Temple. 0/1891 (1891) 3/27 throwing himself into the river and ended the 51-year-old's life. But was despised, and no relatives, sold to foreigners from the people of Shimoda, pick it up, and his body was left untouched, said. 宝福 Temple 15 generations was a pathetic takeoka Mahayana priest corpse and burial was. At this time also the priest is called tōjinmachi Bou... Graves are two of the original hand-weathered. His left hand is actress Mizutani yaeko's donations. Grave of former girlfriend tsurumatsu further left.

  • Ryoma is noticeable, loving think sloppy temples or not. This ofsesshu is there the had not been placed in Shimoda, signed the Convention of Kanagawa, Shimoda was opened, so went to Uraga magistrate's Office. But this is tentative at the Shimoda police station was built the magistrate's Office next year. Also where famous tojin okichi tomb it is. Beside the Museum. Charges are applicable. Tojin okichi, real name Saitou when Yes and I went. When the 4-year-old the family moved to Shimoda, became a Geisha at the age of 14. When 17-year-old rises apprenticed as a Samurai concubines to the American Consul General Townsend Harris. Also engaged in small restaurant cheaply building now remains in the building for a while and go out of business after 2 years. It seems to 3/27/1891 heavy night, finally throwing himself into the River will be disconnecting their own lives, but their relatives without ofsesshu No. 15 teen takeoka Mahayana priest sends name "incorrect Outlook nun" in the mind of compassion, buried it cordially in the tohshougu environment. And have up to now then by celebrities new tombstones are donated and that. Edo period, nirayama magistrate Jiang Taichi Shiro hidarimamol gate British is Takeshi Honjin, 農兵 調練, toe. Picture seems to be a glass drank kaishu. Quite big compared to gourds.

  • Sakamoto ryoma, but I don't look don't particularly quaint stories can cry. If the sea is rough to go to Edo from the Shimoda port was in Toba Hotel international port since ancient times, Kyoto and the West was anchored in Shimoda. One night Sakamoto ryoma and katsu have waited and just to ofsesshu mountain toyoshige said of the rumors. I go to Temple katsu, ryoma dappan prohibition you want solved and ask. Mountain said if you drink kaishu into brim with big glass alcohol content is another story. Cut drinking kaishu in Orito, sunny, ryoma prohibited that. * At that time dappan is equivalent to syouin.
