Wood sculptor Yuichi Komoda (moqu c0mo) has carved out a new landmark in Itoshima. Resembling North American totem poles, each pole of locally sourced Japanese cedar is named after one of the seven mountains and peaks in Itoshima, and each is dedicated to a god. Located near the turnoff to Shiraito Falls.
