Kuroda Vassals Grave

Other Historic Site/Building
This historic site is located in Hososhima Port. This is the place where it is believed that the bodies Kuroda Domain vassal Kaiga Kyumo and two other imperial loyalists washed ashore when they were slaughtered while under guard and being escorted after being captured in the Teradaya Incident which occurred in Kyoto's Fushimi in 1862 in the late Edo period. It is said that local residents who found the bodies erected a tombstone for them, and today a more recently built gravestone can be found on the islet marking the presumed location. At low tide, the site becomes connected to the peninsula, making it possible to walk it.
