    A crowdfunding campaign for repairs to the real-life island of Tsushima has concluded with more than 27m yen (£192k) raised - 500 per cent of its original goal - thanks in part to donations from fans of Ghost of Tsushima.

    The project will ensure the reconstruction of the Torii gate at Tsushima's Watatsumi Shrine, which was destroyed by a typhoon in September last year. The structure currently lies in pieces, half-submerged in water (thanks, Siliconera).

    Crowdfunding began in November via Camp-Fire, a Japanese alternative to Kickstarter. Quickly, the cause was noticed and picked up by Ghost of Tsushima fans - who have been thanked by the project's founders.

    Now, restoration of the Torii gate will be ensured - alongside a fresh stone monument nearby which will list the names of anyone who donated more than 10k yen (£71). The shrine is scheduled to be finished by this August, if all goes well.
