Current Rokkakudo is rebuilt in 2012. Due to Eastern Japan earthquake and tsunami back in March 2011, Rokkakudo was washed away. University of Ibaraki mainly concentrated on the rehabilitation project, and as of their investigation, Rokkakudo was rebuilt same as Tenshin designed at that time. Now Rokkakudo is the symbol of rehabilitation. Okakura Tenshin visited Izura by Hida Shuzan’s guide in May 1903 (Meiji 36) and loved this place, then built Rokkakudo two years later. He worked at Boston art museum in winter, and enjoyed the Izura beach in summer. The recommended spot to see is the front gate “Nagayamon” which is designated for registered cultural properties and the rough rocks and cliff with ruffling waves. This scenery is impressively dinamic. Open time is 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. The entrance fee is 300 JPY.
