Tsushima Island Shrine Gets Restored With Help Of Ghost Of Tsushima Players

Tsushima Island shrine gets restored with the help of Ghost of Tsushima players. Players of the Ghost of Tsushima have helped fund $260,000 to help restore a real-life shrine on Tsushima Island in Japan.

On September 7 2020, a typhoon hit the island, destroying the Torii gate situated at the shrine. One of the shrine’s priests, Yuichi Hirayama, created a crowdfunding page in November with the goal of raising 5,000,000 Yen ($47,500). The crowdfunding effort to rebuild a Torii gate at Watatsumi Shrine, in the centre of the island, hit its original goal with help from the game’s community.

Hirayama later wrote that the fund “received a great deal of support from the players of the Ghost of Tsushima game.” Over  2,000 people donated more than $27,000,000 Yen, or around $260,000, which is over 500% of the initial goal.

Rebuilding work on the gate is scheduled to begin in April and finish by August, although progress could be slowed by COVID-19 restrictions. Those who contributed to the initiative more than 10,000 Yen (about $95) will have their names embedded on a stainless steel plate that will be laid as part of the reconstruction process.
