According to ‘The Records of Kinpō Shrine,’ a man named Yanosuke from Semboku County brought the bangaku here, but according to another legend, the lion head, carved by the priest Zezan-Taikaku of Akata-Chōkokuji Temple, was kept at Kinpō Shrine and thus it was Zezan who also brought the bangaku itself here. The script has 15 numbers, among which some numbers of bangaku, but only some shishimai (lion dance) numbers currently remain.
