The go stone beach

It is black, round stone such as stone of Go all over the beach

Near the tip of matsusakihanshima, there is the go stone beach which the name of the shore was derived from, and black, round stone such as stone of Go deposits all over the beach.
It is washed break by wave, and rock (black shale) made from a certain mud near the shore is stone which thing which we made Maruishi is black, and is round. Black is caused by organic matter (colors such as sludge collecting in the bottom of the sea), and go stone of Go includes legend that we were given to lord of Sendai feudal clan.
