“The fruit from this Japanese nutmeg tree is called “Hadaka Gaya” because of the inner skin. It is approximately 20m tall, and 4.5m round. The age of tree is unknown. It is said that when Takauji Ashikaga escaped from Kyoto to Kyusyu he stopped at Hioki. He dedicated a peeled nutmeg fruit to pray long-lasting good luck in battle. It is said that from that fruit “Hadaka Gaya” grew. It was registered as a Natural monument in 1925.”
