  • Where two legendary Samurai fought duels of honour. Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojiro. Musashi delayed the meeting purposely to destabilize the opponent and still defeated with a bot, when Kojiro was with the sword. Legend. The site must be visited when studying the history of the Samurai. No big deal on site in addition to the statue and the boat used at the time. Access is via Ferry. It's worth it!

  • So upon surveying has prior knowledge to duel Musashi and Kojiro seem to like a special place or something, but here is where? I feel island. Story of this duel was not in historical fact? I wonder!... what a personal duel war rather than the country or the history created by winner's... I duel or a name borrowed from, I don't like to kill Musashi. It also capitalizes on psychological warfare or advantage,... but once kids ability until it is....

  • The old M and N land was deeded to the city from a park and its free to go. But as you might not expect a special place of scenic beauty and splendid monuments can. Musashi VS Kojiro OR Inoki VS Saito ((lol) of the images look quiet as we recommend.

  • Is the island is very smal with no shops or anyone living there for long time.The name if the Island was Funejima after the defeat from Musashi the Island name changed to Ganryujima to Honor Sasaki Kojirō who real name was Ganryū Kojirō . The place Is like a big park empty with symbolic grave for Sasaki Kojiro who was defeated by Miyamoto Musashi. You have to get a ferry and takes 10 minutes arrive. Also you can find Statue from this two great Samurais and one boat at the beach where Musashi arrived and fight with Kojiro. At the duel Musashi arrived late making Kojiro impatient and upseted.Some legends say Kojiro was not able to see Musashi really well because his position looking at the sea at Sunset. what may be the mistake that took his life.but this are all legends.
  • Not so much to see but if you're interested by samurai you'll enjoyed it !
  • Guests can enjoy a mote余shita time to be on the island, but

  • You can go by boat between karato market and Moji port retro area. This area over the prefectures, just play one day. I think family vacations and couples can enjoy.
