Senbon Icho in Katsushika HachimanguFushihime Sakura in Guhoji Temple
Mamasan Guhoji Temple was a popular resort in Edo period that had been introduced in Myriad Leaves, and Issa Kobayashi, one of the most popular haiku poet in Edo period, visited it and wrote a poem of it. A stone tablet inscribed the poem written by Issa Kobayashi stands beside the Niomon Gate of this temple.
Mamasan Guhoji Temple was described in a ukiyoe picture drawn by a famous ukiyoe painter Hiroshige Utagawa named Meisho Edo Hyakkei (the 100 noted spots in Edo) as a popular spot for viewing colored leaves in fall. And Tekona Reishindo Hall and Mama no Tsugihashi Bridge are on it. Issa Kobayashi might visit them when he come to Mamasan.
Moreover, another stone tablet inscribed one of his haiku poem stands in Katsushka Hachimangu Shrine in Yawata famous for Senbon Icho Gingko Tree designated as a national natural treasure. At that time, he might visit Yawata no Yabushirazu.
