The place where the water of Lake Kawaguchi swirls and is drawn into the ground is called "Tsutsuguchi", and it was feared that it was a devil's Tsutsuguchi because fishermen and water-drawing women from Funatsuhama were sucked in and did not come up.

Remark 1

The place where the water of Lake Kawaguchi swirls and is drawn into the ground is called "Tsutsuguchi", and it was feared that it was a devil's Tsutsuguchi because fishermen and water-drawing women from Funatsuhama were sucked in and did not come up. Eventually, people prayed for distress and disaster prevention, and named the water god Tsutsuguchi Myojin here. At that time, I cut the pine wood of Mt. Tenjo into the mouthpiece to prevent the water from flowing in a whirlpool.

Remark 2

In Bunmei 8(1469)3, the worship hall was newly built in Eiroku 8 (1565), and the company name was given in Horeki 6 (1756).The festival is held every other year with Hachioji Shrine, and there are portable shrines and daimyo parades.

Remark 3

In Bunroku 4(1504), heavy rain caused a large increase in water, and when the lord of Funatsu, Owari Kobayashi, removed the pine wood from Tsutsuguchi, fragments of flower stands were dug out, and the water swirled and flowed out. It was.Therefore, the water of the lake was steadily drained.
