Kaneda Castle Ruins
This mountaintop fortification on Mt. Joyama is designated as a site of national historic importance. It features stone ramparts running for 2.2 kilometers, as well as a gateway, both dating from the 7th century. There are also remains of gun emplacements built during the Russo-Japanese War (1904-5). A trail leads to the summit of Mt. Joyama, which offers breathtaking views.
This Buddhist temple was erected in 1615 by Yoshinari, the 20th-generation head of the Sō clan who governed Tsushima. Since then it has served as the graveyard for the clan. There are 3 massive cedar trees in front of the mausoleum, which are said to be 1,200 years old, making them the oldest on Tsushima.
To reach Tsushima from Hakata, it takes 2 hours by high-speed ferry to the island's Izuhara Port. By air, flights from Fukuoka Airport take 30 minutes.
