Kotsuma Nankin
According to the chief priest of Ikune Shrine, one of the most famous products of Kotsuma Nankin-zuka was the Kotsuma Nankin (pumpkin), which was sold by Kotsuma merchants to be stored for winter sustenance, and even for use as a lucky charm to ward off ailments such as palsy. The hillock is said to have been created as a dedication to the pumpkins that helped many people stave off starvation during a great famine in the Edo period.
