“There was the woman called Otose who is Katata’s graduate and was serving the mansion of Genji of Kyoto at the time in which the 12th century, and Genji and Heike, the samurais, did the conflict.She protected Genji’s white flag on the occasion of the Heike’s extinction, got off to Otsu, avoided Heike’s pursuer,and jumped into Lake Biwa. However, she had the hand that grasped the white flag cut off by Heike’s samurai, and died.One arm of hers flowed and arrived at Katata, and dyed the stone of the beach with blood.Since then, this beach has come to be called the beach of Otose.The child received his mother’s will,subsequently protected a white flag, and said that he was Taro Miturori Tezuka ,general of the Yosinaka Kiso, after that.”
