Tsukamoto Nyorai Mound (No.4 block, Tsukamoto 6-chome)
This grave mound is maintained by Choan-ji Temple.

There is a tradition that during the Kemmu Period (1334-1338) the priest HOMYO received a painting of Amitabha by KYOSHIN, the founder of the Nembutsu-shu Sect and engraved it in stone and placed it in the vicinity of Ebie, Fukushima Ward, but that it was moved to the present spot at the time Yodogawa Ward was renovated. HOMYO rebuilt Dainembutsu-dera Temple in Hirano, Osaka, and he also built Homyo-ji Temple in Fukae.
