over 400 years ago, Hideyoshi Toyotomi journeyed to Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine
and Sakai. During that trip, Hideyoshi is said to have rested at this
teahouse and enjoyed the surrounding views. It was this that led to the
teahouse and the area being dubbed Tengachaya ("Shogun's tea house").
The teahouse itself (Megiya") was destroyed by war; however, the
ruins remained. A huge camphor tree, an earthen storehouse, and a stone
statue could be seen at the site, and the site was restored in 1987.
