Mamiya Rinzo's grave
Grave where explorer, Rinzou Mamiya leaving own name into the straits sleeps
Rinzou Mamiya learned surveying from Ino Tadataka. He explored the entire Karafuto (Sakhalin) from 1808 to 1809, and figured out that Karafuto was a separate island. These straits were named Mamiya Strait (the Tatary straits) later. In his later years, he lived in Fukagawa Hamaguri-cho, passed away in February 1844 at the age of 65 (some say the age of 70), and was buried at Honryuin.
