Morehei Island was just offshore of Mura Sabishii Toshi.
The palace, Kyuden Morehei, was a favourite summer home of the nobility of the Doji and Kakita families. Aided by the magics of the Asahina, the gardens of the palace were said to contain cobblestones of gold, and the trees grew leaves of silver. 
In the bay of the island was a large bronze statue of Suitengu, the Fortune of the Sea. In the 8th century there was a tremendous earthqake that sunk the island into the sea. The city disapeared beneath the waves, but the statue's shoulders and head still stood above water and had come to be known as the "Sea King" by passing sailors. Pearl divers claimed the village that was there still stood, but where the palace stood was only a giant fissure in the ground. These waters were called the Road of the Sea King.  Some said that Suitengu had punished its Daimyo, Morehei Yuo.
