- Takeshima Island
Gamagori-City Takeshima Island
"Takeshima Island" is the symbol of Gamagori City and is connected to shore by a 387 meter bridge. On the island is a "Yaotomi Shrine," in dedication to the Buddhist goddess Benzaiten. The bridge is supposed to bring good luck to couples, so if you come with your significant other it is customary to walk the bridge together while holding hands. In winter, migratory birds from Siberia also make an appearance here as well.
