Because they serve as green walls, Fukugi trees have long been used for homestead forests in Okinawa Prefecture, as they prevent the wind and the tide.
The age of the Fukugi tree in Kin Kannon-ji is estimated at roughly 350 years, making it one of the rare, massive trees among the Fukugi trees across Okinawa Prefecture.
The Fukugi tree in Kannon-ji was designated as a natural monument of Kin Town on December 24th, 1991.
