"Way along the Hino River" goes along in front of Shogakuji (map 1) as if cutting at Yoshihara Bridge inward. It is temple of the Jodo sect of Buddhism with mountain of Mt. Matsumoto. The foundation is conveyed with 1428 (Shocho 1), and kiyomekishi*ji is annexed in this temple, too. "Chinese-styled base plate prayer to Buddha memorial service" run on October 25 is chosen by "50 selections of Kanagawa folk entertainment".

Furthermore, we reach fuku*in (fukujuin map 2) when we trace ancient road across way just before image of a pine reflected in the water bridge. We are introduced with the foundation of the Mt. Koya-san Shingon Buddhism, the Muromachi period. In these precincts, there are guardian deity of children of zoritsu and kosaruto of the Kannon in image of Kannon with a human body and a horse head and the Genroku era year (around 1700) of gentle face and is valuable as folk information.

When Okubo receives and crosses Aokibashi Bridge, in fact, it becomes Kamiooka, but Aoki Shinto shrine (map 3) is enshrined to slide into the grounds. Aoki Shrine is informed Okubo in local deities of the most door as it is Kugo six a lot or was Soja of village (Kubo, most door, Bessho, Nakazato, Gumyoji, Idogaya) once, but detailed thing including year of foundation and kansei does not know. It is said that the place name under torii which was in Okubo is connected with this company. jiseiin (jishoin) of Okubo was the second social rank of the blind, but, until the Meiji era, was raised to village shrine in 1873. The dryad soul, tree grow lively, and long period of time ability intellect (kugunochi) God of enshrined deity used to divinize state to grow thick well, and it seems that it was done kansei as prosperity of descendant, ancestral god of development of land. Even if the original name became dull with thing such as nueju (nusu) shrine with "shrine of nusuto", this shrine is reason, tradition and Shinto shrine filled with mysteries even if the whole shrine did landslide.

"Topographical record of what the roadside to ask" for (revised edition) was issued in October, 1999 by editing of "history society of Konan".
