Agon 300-Year-Old Banyan Tree and Bungalow Stone Fences (平家の石垣と300年のガジュマル)

Amami Area Tourism spot Recharge and Refresh

At more than 300 years old, this beautiful specimen of gajumaru (banyan) is the oldest and largest tree on the island.
It is located in the village of Ago, in an old samurai neighborhood. The tree and the old coral walls alongside it tend to leave a strong impact on visitors as the combination shows the power of the natural world.
According to local legend, Kenmun, a Japanese folklore spirit, resides in the tree. It is a symbol of health and is said to give off a strong feeling of yang in the ancient Chinese philosophy of yin and yang.
