Lord Fujiwara Mitsuchika grave3.6
At the Jokyu uprising (Jyokyu-no-hen, also known as the Jokyu Disturbance) (Jokyu era 3 (1221)), at the attempt of Hojo clan subjugation by retired Emperor Gotoba, Lord Fujiwara Mitsuchika prematurely reported to the throne but they did not listen, so decided to write a proposal for pursuing Yoshiyoshi at inevitable time.
The conspiracy was leaked out first at Kamakura, and Mitsuchika who participated in the conspiracy got captured, and under escort on the way to Kamakura, at Kagosakatoge Pass, it is told that he was beheaded by Kai Takeda Goro Nobumitsu.
Since then the graveyard has been protected by the people of Subashiri, and a memorial service is held every May.
