Hokan Shrine

It is said that Yoshitsune and his servants, who escaped from Hiraizumi, rested at this Takarahama beach along the Torijugawa River. Hokan Shrine was built by the ancestors of this area and was named ``Hokan Okami'' in honor of Yoshitsune. The shrine was burnt down in 1899, and a stone shrine now stands.
