| Osaka suffered a big blow from continuous
earthquakes on the 14th of June, on the 4th
and 5th of November in the 7th year of Kaei(1854,
The state of damage written in historical documents was different from each other.
According to “Osaka Sishi”(the history of Osaka city), the drowned were 273, the damaged vessels were 1,800 but the dead were as many as 600 by another document.
Those who lived nearby proposed and erected a monument in memory of the dead July, in the 2nd year of Ansei.
The monument gave a clear and simple account of the damage, especially advising you not to get on board to avoid an earthquake in danger of tide wave and added that you keep the inscripted letters clean to read easily.
