Travel Guide - Zenigata Sand Painting (Kotohiki Park)


Zenigata Sand Painting is a 345 meters diameter outline of Kanei Tsuho, a square-holed old coin dating from the Edo Period (1603 - 1868). The coin's outline and four Kanji characters are formed by trenches which were dug by the local people in 1633 to welcome their new feudal lord, Ikoma Takatoshi.
The sand painting is beside the sea, at the foot of Kotohiki Hill in Kotohiki Park, and the whole picture of the huge coin can be seen well from the hilltop. It is said that if you see the sand painting, you will lead a long healthy life without worrying about money. The sand painting is brightly lit up at night (until 22:00).
