Historical documents state that Emperor Godaigo was exiled to the Oki Islands.
Local people believe it was to Kuroki-gosho, near Beppu Port.

This park area is anytime for anyone who wants to visit and learn about history and exile in the Oki Islands.
There are some simple English signboards.
If you climb the stairs to the top of the hill, you will be rewarded with nice views across the inner sea across to Ama Town (Nakanoshima Island) and the Beppu Port area.

At the foot of the hill is Hekifu-kan, a museum containing documents and pictures pertaining to the emperor.
