The Home of Yang Guifei
East of Tsunoshima, facing the gentle waves of the Yuya Bay, you will find Mukatsuku Peninsula. It is said that Yang Guifei rests here.
According to some legends, in the Nara Period (AD 710-794) Yang Guifei, the favored concubine of Emperor Xuanzong of Tang China, drifted ashore on Yuya Bay in Nagato City, Yamaguchi Prefecture and was buried at Nison-in Temple.
Yang Guifei was known as one of the three beauties of the world, and the “dangerous beauty” who caused the An Shi Rebellion.
The area around Nison-in Temple includes Cherry Blossom Square, an observation platform, walking paths, an event area, a statue of Yang Guifei, and many Chinese style buildings in addition to her grave.
