Hadasu is said to be the place where the illustrious Royal Doctor Jofuku came from China in search the elixir of life by order of Qin, the first emperor of China. The village is spotted with terraced rice paddies and houses hugging the slope, and with the many legends and historical spots here, you can really feel the timelessness of this small hamlet. A species of tree that Jofuku found to have medical properties now grows at Hadasu and Jofuku Shrines.
