A picturesque place for its beautiful seashore with different shapes of bays and a pine tree forest. Its name came to be known for what Tenshin Okakura,a leading figure who contributed to the modernization of Japanese art ,moved there from Tokyo in 1903. Tenshin Museum exhibits various precious materials such as the first edition of "Book of Tea" penned by Tenshin. Rokkaku-do(Hexagonal Building ) and Cape Izura park are the unmissable points, and you can imagine that ex-famous painters during Meiji era worked hard at fictionization if you stand on this ground.
