Remains of Nokubi village
Nozaki-gou, Ojika-machi, Kitamatsuura-gun, 〒857-4709
Nokubi village was located in the centre of Nozaki island, and today the remains of former houses and traces of disused farmland can still be seen there, as well as Former Nokubi church. A trail which the village's inhabitants made is also visible.
When compared with an old map from around 1877 (which is thought to show how the village must have looked during the Edo period), the land use of roughly half of the present-day village remains almost unchanged.
