    Nigata Pref. Sadoshi Mano 457
    The official name of this site is The Burial Mound of Emperor Juntoku. It is located on the ruins of the Juntokuin imperial crematorium, which was built upon a hill overlooking the Kuninaka Plains in Mano, Sado City, Niigata Prefecture. After the Jokyu Rebellion ended in failure, the emperor was banished to this island, and he was hoping to retake the capital, but died on the island. Pine and cherry trees were planted to mark the remains of the site where he was cremated. Although it is not his grave, it is managed by the Imperial Household Agency as if it was an imperial mausoleum. About 20 minutes' walk from the mound, is Manogu Shrine, where Emperor Juntoku is enshrined.
