Once upon a time, a huge snake that came to Hibi from Ozuchi Island troubled people.
There lived Kazi Fuzizaemon, who was an expert archer.
One night, he heard God’s voice in a dream, and when he woke up, he found a bow and an arrow at his bedside.
The next day he went out to dispatch the giant snake. It coiled itself around a large pine tree on the shore. Fuzizaemon shot an arrow at the snake with all his might and killed it.
People thanked God and admired Fuzizaemon for his courage.
Some scales and the jaw of the giant snake were dedicated to the Misaki Shrine in Hibi.
