quote
A Sōtō Zen temple.
According to the legend, St.Roben (a prominent 8th Century Buddhist monk) once prayed here and an abundant spring gushed out; so St.Roben founded a temple here, dedicated to Benten (the goddess of waters).

The temple thrived in the 17th century, under the patronage of Ishigaya Sadakiyo (a trusted retainer of Shogun Ieyasu) who was assigned to control this area. Organizing clever melioration, he increased prosperity and was highly praised by the shogun for that. His tomb is on the premises as well as a pond fed by St.Roben's spring; once the pond almost disappeared due to aggressive development but was saved by the temple and the parish.

A well-known well-known Mawari Jizō statue is located in the temple.

and another "incident" from Inaba

quote
An Yong-bok (fl. 1692 - 1697)
was a Korean oarsman in 17th century Joseon Dynasty who became known for his travels to Japan during which his activities were instrumental in determining fishery rights in the waters of two islands in the Sea of Japan (East sea): Ulleung Island and the Liancourt Rocks.
The An Yong-bok incident occurred in the spring of 1693 about 40 Korean fishermen from Busan and Ulsan clashed with the Otani and Murakawa fishermen at Ulleung-do. An Yong-bok, and Pak Eo-dun, (박어둔) were captured and taken to the Yonago in the Tottri clan (modern-day Yonago city and Tottori Prefecture).

An was detained at Otani's house in Yonago for two months, and investigated by the Tottori clan. The shogunate ordered to send them to the Nagasaki magistrate place, and to send them to Tsushima clan in addition. An was held hostage by the lord of Tsushima clan (So Yoshitsugu) again. When An was repatriated to Korea, the Tokugawa Shogunate demanded the prohibition of Koreans going to Ulleung-do.
This led to diplomatic friction between Japan and Korea.
. . . . .
As result of diplomatic negotiation, senior statesmens of shogunate issued the following instructions to the load of Tsuhima clan in January 1696 (translated into English):

1.Ulleungdo(Takeshima) is about 160-ri (640 km) from Oki but only about 40-ri (160 km) from Korea; therefore, it can be considered that Japanese Takeshima is same island as Korean Ulleungdo.
2.Japanese are forbidden henceforth to make passage to Takeshima for the Japan-Korea friendship because the island is useless.
3.The lord of Tsushima should communicate this to Korea.
