1 St master's birthday (monument)

Shoi Kokushi was born into the Yonezawa family in Kuwasawa, and in 1235 he went to the shrine to practice Zen Buddhism, and after returning to Japan, he founded Tofukuji Temple in Kyoto.
Shizuoka tea is said to have started when The Holy One Nationalist soothed the fruit of the tea brought back from China to Ashikubo.

This monument was built near the Yonezawa family in Kuwasawa, my home, to commemorate the 650th anniversary memorial service of Kokushi in 1932.
