There is small small shrine (small shrine) when we climb mountain behind of pure belief temple (map 7), hollow directly across from graveyard as if consoling gold-banded lily growing wild. It is small shrine of "cough medicine gennyubo" believed that a cough is cured from people if we visit.
The times were unclear, but, according to the legend recorded in 959 pages of "history of Konan", Buddhist priest of trip called gennyubo happened to pass by upper Noba Murashima field. We let villager dig hole in the ground and, on seeing sick person writhing in agony for a cough by chance, leave a will saying "we want you to pour water three times a day if you enter inside", and it is gennyuboji and others burying alive (with constant), and it is said that we saved sick person. The ground of nyutei was south corner of Noba housing complex, and there was small shrine at the root of Sakaki. In the case of housing complex creation, it is said that human bone went out of this place. Thing said to be small shrine of gennyubo was moved to the present location of pure belief temple in 1931 of front of it, and it is said that there is still worshiper.
There are "Chikaraishi" of Tokimune Hojo and reported thing in the precincts of pure belief temple again. There is 28 kan (about 100 kilograms) in weight, and it is said that Kamakura samurai used for training just like practice with thing which there was in Seki-jo Castle. The open basis of pure belief temple is usukyomokumigieimon, and, according to "forming anew Sagami", neighboring Noba Shinto shrine (map 9) is said to be again as same usukyomokumigieimon did kansei from Yamato Kuniyoshi hills and fields in 1570 (Genki 1). Explanation of "Noba school trace" is made in the bamboo forests nearby by department of upper Noba Neighborhood Associations culture. This neighborhood is the upper Noba education birthplace, and, also, it is thought that it was place that is important as center of upper Noba as old village headman Usui's house is near.
"Topographical record of what the roadside to ask" for (revised edition) was issued in October, 1999 by editing of "history society of Konan".
