Additional Information

Academic information
There is a wood called (Kushinu Utaki・Kaniman Utaki) deep inside the park. The God’s name is Mikiyochi yamabeno goibe, which was worshipped by Oroku Noro (a priestess who is appointed by the king’s government and is responsible for the village rituals). Only the sacred people could go further inside the Tun. There were many old tombs called Ajishi in Utaki, and there are shards and shells from the castle, scattered about. The Tun commands a good view and has well-grown trees where the local people still have festivals and take good care of the area.
