"Stone stairway of the future"(Shusseno ishidan)

Once upon a time in the past, Shogun(General) Ikuyasu Tokugawa said that "Somebody climbs this stairs with horses and picks up plum blossoms in the shrine"

There was no one to do such a dangerous thing

Everyone was afraid that time, an equestrian horseman named Heikuro Magaki offered to go up the stairs with a horse.

As a result, there is a legend that Heikuro, praised for equestrianism by Tokugawa Ieyasu, Hirakuro became famous throughout the country.
