Yoshida Shoin Gukisho (interim residence) near Tenjin-jinja Shrine in Rendaiji, Shimoda City is designated as a designated cultural property by Shizuoka Prefecture. It used to be the residence of Dr. Murayama Gyomaro who became close to Yoshida Shoin when he visited Rendaiji to heal his skin disease. However, it is called by its current name as Shoin hid there for several days when he planned to go overseas by boarding a kurofune (an American black ship). Visiting is possible for a fee.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
