The name “Kuizome”, or “start to eat”, originates from an old legend that a princess of Kurobane Clan, suffering from a strange disease which coursed her to loose the ability to eat, prayed here and attained recovery. Its garden has Juzuwariishi stones, which are said to have been cut into two by Buddhist Saint Nichiren while praying for containing the magical power of the specter fox with nine tails, and Kyodaiseki stones, on which some Buddhist invocation words are said to have been inscribed by one of his disciples with nails.
