Kurushima pirates

Right across from ship yard, 5 minutes from the boat, there are very small island call “Kurushima”. Seventeen people still live on this island. This was main island for pairate about 600 years ago. There is big straight surrounding this area and lots of big island but this straight call “Straight of Kurushima” The reaso why the pirate were on this island was that water moves so fast and these people had skills to build boat could across to island. I think that is why the ship yard is right by this island, it is the bunch of pirate continued and become one major shipyad since.

That is why so well made rich temple is in such a poor small island.


This is island we did fishing, weather was not cooperative this date, it was pour rain but I kept fishing.
