Is it Tsushima-shi that there is the most number of mountains in the municipalities of the whole country?


 In Japan where most of country were covered in the rich forest, there are famous and unknown mountains in it approximately "the number of mountains". On earth is mountain of how much number in Japan?
 It is author, Tadashi Takeuchi of "Yamana conspectus in Japan" that we count Yamana listed in a one-25,000th topographical map (approximately 4,400 pieces) of Geographical Survey Institute for six years, and gathered up.
 The total number rises really on approximately 18,000 mountains.
 Mountains writer Tetsuya Ishimaru introducing secret, charm, way of enjoying mountains based on data of Takeuchi at various cut ends
 In fact, according to the book, it is 177 mountains of Tsushima-shi that unexpectedly there are many numbers of mountain added the name to most among approximately 1,741 (municipalities + Tokyo's 23 wards) municipalities of the whole country.
 We greatly separate Nikko-shi, Tochigi of the same percentage second place, 129 mountains of Aga-machi, Niigata and are the clear top.
 Only for island, it becomes density of approximately 3 times of Mt. Sadogashima (Niigata) 64 of the second place, Mt. Yakushima (Kagoshima) of the third place 56.
 As reason with many mountains named Tsushima as for Ishimaru,
 We give nadoo and are walked for a long time to every corner of island and suppose when the name would be touched on many mountains in what was used.
 If we add,
 We include nadoga.
 For people who lived in Tsushima, mountain was invasion base to continent, fort which sometimes protected life from foreign aggression again at object of faith, bread of life, mark, time of life-threatening fishery, voyage.

The mountains of gods and creatures


 Yamaji occupies 89% of island soil, and there are many virgin forests where felling of entrance and tree was forbidden as sacred place of the mountains worship, and Tsushima exists. Shiratake in particular was sacred mountain on behalf of Tsushima and we prayed, and "wish hung" the safety of recovery of illness and family whom we went to the front of and was climbed notameni and received special veneration.
 Virgin forest which has been protected becomes habitat of the precious animals and plants such as Tsushima lynxes by faith, and, as for "Shiratake," in "the mountain rising to a great height," "ryuryosan" is extremely appointed to natural monument of country each as high laurel forest of authenticity as breeding place of valuable birds by blend student of continent system plant and Japanese plant.
 Geologic most of Tsushima are sedimentary rocks (Tsushima province formation) formed in the bottom of the sea, but quartz porphyry is exposed to Shiroyama and Shiratake, and basalt is a part of hornfels Zone that Ariake mountain and ryuryosan received heat metamorphism in a part of mountain rising to a great height, and each has individuality in geological feature. Inherent nature and history are engraved into the mountains of Tsushima and, depending on interest of mountaineer, can show expression filled with variety of cage cage again in the four seasons by season.

The mountains where the history of island of border was engraved into


 The history of Tsushima is old and sends on Wei will Wajin biography for the first time and is described in Kojiki as one of Honshu and Kyushu and important "bug-eyed person island" to line up. The specific history of island of border has been engraved into the mountains of Tsushima.

Signal fire stand was placed in Shiroyama, senhyo*san with soldiers garrisoned at strategic posts in Kyushu and continued considering foreign country of distance of the horizon. Song about peak "existence Mingshan" of tanka composed by soldiers in Kyushu and Tsushima is written down to Manyoshu tanka collection.
 Army more than 100,000 crossed "Shimizu Yamashiro trace" (Shimizuyama) to the Korean Peninsula across this sea in station castle built at the time of the Korea dispatch of troops of Hideyoshi Toyotomi at the end of 16th century. The mountains of Tsushima are about to still talk about event of the times of turbulence calmly.

The mountains which became base of national defense


 The European and American Great Powers which developed colony acquisition competition by the late Tokugawa period particularly the U.K. and Russia fixed on Tsushima.
 Natural good harbor, short cogongrass gulf (Aso wooden bowl) which opened in the center of Tsushima was strategic point of military affairs, traffic that was available as naval port.
