Goroyama is famous for its torchlight. But the reality that important things are lost one by one is sad.
How many people feel the regret of Date Masamune's murdered Daijoin?
What is Goroyama?
It is a mountain where a total of five people, including Sukagawa Castle Lord Daijoin, Miharu Castle Lord, and three others, read poetry, had a drink, and deepened their friendship.
That's why I looked it up in the "Mountain of Five Elderly People" ↔️ Sukagawa City Library‼ ️

I came with a child on a hot day, but I enjoyed playing. It is widely used for parking lots and there is a big tree so there is also shade. But take only water
