満明寺上の八十八箇所巡りルートがある公園には「龍造寺隆信の五輪塔」「薬師如来像」があります。

肥前の戦国大名で「肥前の熊」と恐れられた龍造寺隆信の墓だと伝えられています。
戦国時代、九州北部で勢力を競っていた佐賀の龍造寺氏は、九州の覇権を争う薩摩の島津氏や有馬氏の連合軍と、島原の「沖田畷」で戦を繰り広げます。
当時、島原周辺は海岸線から眉山の裾野にかけて広大な湿地と深田が広がっていました。
また現在の島原城へ続く道も当時は幅が狭く、「沖田畷」はその湿地帯を縦貫する畷であり、交通の要衝でした。
島津、有馬軍はこの畷を封鎖防備を強化し、待ち伏せし湿地帯へ誘い込み、数に勝る龍造寺軍を迎え撃ちます。
結果、戦略に優った島津・有馬軍が勝利し、龍造寺隆信は戦死しました。
 昭和62年頃、雲仙観光通りを考える会(当時の会長加藤元俊氏)が、満明寺の裏山ゲートボール場横に散らばっていた五輪塔の隆信墓石を集め修復再建したもので世話人の雲仙古湯、酒井店主の話によると、古湯有志により墓再建の話が出た頃、小浜商工会が、「地区起こしの資金配分」を企画、この資金を古湯地区が、寺の馬場、新湯地区に呼びかけ、三地区の資金を拠出、修復再建。開眼供養の時は、龍造寺家の子孫、長崎戸石の澤田祐造も参列された。
英語バージョン
Walk downhill from the observation point and take in the view of Kinugasayama. On your right, you will see a plaque embedded in a boulder. This is Machiko-iwa, or the Machiko Stone.
 This boulder was the setting for a memorable scene in the 1954 film “Kimi no Na Wa,” or “What is your name?” The film and its female lead, Machiko, became so famous that Unzen saw a sudden increase in tourists, all of whom sought the beautiful winter landscape that they had seen in the film. The actress who played Machiko, Keiko Kishi, was even invited to the ceremony commemorating the stone she made famous.
 Behind Machiko-iwa is a different sort of monument: a cross that marks the Christian Martyrs’ Memorial. As described earlier, Christianity was widespread in Unzen during the late 1500s and early 1600s. However, beginning in the second half of the seventh century, Christians were brutally persecuted by the Tokugawa Shogunate, and many were tortured in the boiling water of the Unzen jigoku to force them to abandon their faith. This monument commemorates their sacrifice.
