Pilgrims coming down from Kyoto by boat landed here, near Temmabashi which was formerly called Watanabenotsu. First they worshipped Kubotsu Oji in back of the shore, and then started walking. Sanjukkoku boats (passenger boats) went up and down the river in the Edo period, the environs teeming with people and cargo. Currently bank improvement work is underway. It will become the new center of the water town. A monument to identify the former Hakkenya Funatsukiba stands quietly at the storefront of Nagata Kombu Seaweed Store on the road on the west side of Keihan Line Temmbashi Station. From there to the south. Pass the 3 parks; Kita Oe, Naka Oe, and Minami Oe, and turn east at Nagahori Dori Street, connecting with the ancient road route of Ueshio-suji. Head for Shitennoji from here. Walk carefully to follow the dotted road signs of the ancient road. By train, return to Subway Temmabashi Station from Hakkenya Funatsukiba, go to Shitennojimae Yuhigaoka Station by Tanimachi Line. Approx. 3 minutes walk to Shitennoji.
