(Small Notes for the Issue)
Kujuku ( literally "ninety-nine" meaning "many" ) Islands in Kisakata used to be in the shallow inlet, which disappeared because of the upheaval of 2.4 meters by the earthquake of 1804. The islands are surrounded by paddy fields, on which one can see the beautiful reflections of the islands especially before the rice planting in spring. In 1934, the area was appointed to be one of the Natural Monuments.
