Visit Notes

Toro-jin'ya is a hatamoto jin'ya site located in Fukuoka Township, Okazaki Municipality. Fukuoka is half rural and half suburban, and the site of Toro-jin'ya is now that of Fukuoka Elementary School on the edge of urban Okazaki. There is a signboard explaining about the history of the site, but no ruins remain. Five pine trees which were planted at the time of the jin'ya have been retained by the school and now dominate its grounds. These pines, known as the jin'ya pines, are protected as a municipal-designated natural monument.
