Okiku Daimyojin Sarayashiki Ruins

”1, 2, 3…”, Okiku counts the plates. Once there was a beautiful servant named Okiku. She worked for the samurai Aoyama Tessan. Okiku often refused his amorous advances, so he tricked her into believing that she had carelessly lost one of the family’s ten precious delft plates. Such a crime would normally result in her death. In a frenzy, she counted and recounted the nine plates many times. However, she could not find the tenth and went to Aoyama in guilty tears. The samurai offered to overlook the matter if she finally became his lover, but again she refused. Eventually, Okiku threw herself into a well.

Travellers come to Okiku Daimyojin Temple to pray to the soul of Okiku for good health.
