"Sansiantai is, as you might imagine, is saturated in folklore. The three enormous rocks making up the island's most conspicuous feature long ago gave rise to a native myth that three of China's Eight Immortals once chose the island for a place to rest.  Even the name of the island translates to the Terrace of the Three Immortals. Lu, Tung-pin, Iron Crutch Li, and He, Xian-gu were the names of these great sages.  After they had taken their rest they left three footprints.  These are the three massive rocks dominate the small uninhabited island. The island was once connected by a neck of land to the rest of Taiwan but over the millennia this wore away" (2 Kuriositas)

「あなたが想像するように、Sansiantaiは民間伝承で飽和しています。ずっと前に島の最も顕著な特徴を構成する3つの巨大な岩は中国の8つのImmortalsのうちの3つが休む場所のために一度島を選んだというネイティブの神話を引き起こしました。島の名前は三不滅隊のテラスと言い換えられます、呂、桐pin、鉄の松葉李、そして彼、西安区はこれらの偉大な賢人の名前で、彼らが休んだ後、彼らは3つの足跡を残しました。この島はかつて台湾の他の地域と首を結ぶところでつながっていましたが、これは千年の間かけ離れたものでした」(2 Kuriositas)
