Tokushima is home to Mount Tsurugi, the second highest mountain in western Japan.
It is said to be known as a place where Solomon's hidden treasure may be hidden, where Christ may have hidden, where there is a power spot to break off bad relationships and bring good ones together, and where there is delicious spring water.
