    Nagasaki Iki Ashibecho Moroyoshihonmurafure 1342-102
    A row of Jizo (Kshitigarbha) statues located in Moroyoshihonmurafure, Ashibe-cho, Iki City. It is said the six statues, jutting out over the sea, are there to provide salvation of all living things in the six realms, and at high tide they become immersed in the water. “Harahoge” literally translates to “belly hole,” a name derived from the round depressions carved out of the statues’ bellies, and there are various theories as to the true reason behind why they were placed here.

    As the sight seeing bus tour does not include this place, we took a taxi from the hotel we stayed to this place and back to Ashibe port and paid USD23.20. There is a hole near the stomach of Jizo so...

Nagasaki Main Areas

around-area-map

This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
