*Matsurasayo hime (松浦佐用姫/まつらさよひめ) is a daughter of a powerful family who is said to have lived in current Kyuragi-cho in Karatsu.
Tradition says that in 537 to go to the front of Silla, Otomono Sadehiko 大伴狭手彦(おおとものさでひこ) came to this place where he fell in love with Matsurasayo hime.
The day when he departed for the front, Matsurasayo hime saw him off from the top of Kagamiyama, waving her stall.
