  Karaito Gozen Historical Park

The legend of Karaito-Gozen is passed down in Fujisaki. Karaito-Gozen was the concubine of Tokiyori Hojo, a regent for the Shogun during the Kamakura period. They say when he saw her haggard figure after her long pilgrimage through the many prefectures, she threw herself off a cliff in grief. The place of her death is now a historical park and the ancient story of unhappy love is still told today.
