Erection, donation


Prince Otomo Sourin grave (city historic spot January 11, 1996 designation)


 The name called "shu*" is converted to (1562) Zen Buddhism in 1562 and I take the tonsure and gave my name, and am the name used as a family name most.
 shu* and the relation with Tsukumi are in the latter half of 40 generations and sail up nika before the sun attack of (1578) in 1578. Afterwards, I aim at the making of ideal country by Christianity that was a long-time dream on this ground when I go into retirement in Tentokuji in 1583. However, I make the will half and die. It was age at death 58 years old.
 It was buried in the Christianity-type grave at first, but when an early Christianity in Japan exile law is emitted by Hideyoshi, eldest son, gito (kichito) do reinterment in Buddhist ceremony, but it is said that the grave has gone to ruin.
 Progeny Usuki-jo Castle of the old vassal is rich and, in the current grave, was done reinterment more in the generous politics year (1789-1801), and, at this time, has a castle rich ha, gravestone made newly and says to Nagaizumi temple (city Miyamotocho) that I asked for a memorial service.

 In the gravestone front, it is chopped "tenseijugonenchoigotsukihatachisannichiharuakigojuyuhachisai" on the side each with "kyushunishimai*kan*jushiishitakenhidarikineishoshodaitomohidarieimon*gengichin" "zuihoindenzenhanerinjishokenhidarikingokyuanshu*daikyoshi". When I read the epitaph, I have a feeling that the feeling of awe for the lord of the vassal is handed down.
The  hall was rebuilt while the times changed, but, in 1977, "Prince Otomo Sourin honoring society" was formed as a promoter in Tamotsu Ueda, and lined up in the cause of the design of Mr. Arata Isozaki, a Christianity-type gravestone and was reborn in the graveyard which I saw today.
