“Toujin Grave”, which enshrines Chinese labourers who became the sacrifice of The Robert Bowne Incident

In 1852, when an American ship “The Robert Bowne” was carrying Chinese labourers from China to the United States, it crashed into rocks off the coast of Ishigaki island and left the ship. Toujin Grave enshrines 128 Chinese labourers who died.
