In the late Muromachi era (1392-1573), Hirado was the center of International trading in the East China Sea. For this reason, many Chinese merchants chose Hirado as their primary trading port. Tei Shiryu, from Ming China, was one of the leaders of these Chinese merchants and had his residence in Kawachi town on Hirado Island. Tei Sei Ko (Chen Chen Ko) was the son of this Tei Shiryu and a woman from Hirado called Matsu Tagawa.
Tei Sei Ko went to China at the age of seven and worked for the Chinese Ming Government together with this father. After the Ming government perished, he went to Taiwan and fought for the re-establishing of the Ming, until a disease caused his death at the age of 39.
The legend of Tei Sei Ko's loyalty to the Ming can still be witnessed in the play called `Kokusenya Kassen". The trees that can be seen in the garden of Tei Sei Ko's old house, have allegedly been planted by Tei Sei Ko himself.
