At the time when Ōshiro Aji 大城按司 committed suicide, Shinsō 眞宗 was still very young and could not yet differentiate between East and West. His mother carried him along and they fled to her native place of Kakinohana village in Tamagusuku district. Afraid that the Yo-no-nushi (世之主, i.e. Shimasoe Ōsato Aji) would hear about this, she further fled to the distant Shimotabaru located in Gima village, Mawashi district 眞和志儀間村之下田原. There they lived in seclusion. Soon other people from Gima village began to migrate there and turned the place into a village which came to be called Kakinohana. This is the legend of this House, but there are no documents to prove this.
