The Shrine to Benten in Blue Chrysanthemum Village was the only shrine to the Fortune of Romantic Love in Lion lands. [1]

Founding Edit

It was built in the 10th century by Goratu, a former Lion Clan Champion, to atone his sins. During his short rule he had doomed the love of the couple formed by Kitsu Kozu and Doji Echiko. When Goratu died, his ashes were spread around the shrine's grounds and blue chrysanthemums sprouted up from the ground, giving the village its name. [2]

12th century Edit

In 1159 the monk monk tended the shrine. [1]
