Kokeyama Ryuo Monument
This is said to be an area in which many spirits wander. Back in the days of Nobunaga Oda, the chief retainer of the Tosa clan and his wife were ambushed here in an act of revenge; later, the entire Tengachaya area was the battlefield for the Toyotomi and Tokugawa summer and winter sieges. Iemitsu Tokugawa had this monument built in 1650. The monument eventually toppled after many years and ended up being used as a bridge over a nearby creek. When the Nankai Railway lines underwent repair in 1929, the creek was filled and the monument recovered. Now taking its name from the surrounding village, the monument is revered as the guardian deity of the region.
