Tomo, located to the south of Fukuyama, prospered as an important port for sea traffic from the Nara Period. Sensui, Benten, and Kogo islands were praised as "The Most Scenic Places in Japan" by Korean messenger Lee Bang Eon during the Edo Period. The "toba" stones erected in 1271 and Benten-do are visible on Benten Island in the centre of the photograph.
