Seaweed harvested in villages like Ninoe, Imai, Funabori, or Kuwakawa was called "Kasai-nori," and was a different type of seaweed from "Asakusa-nori". Myōshō-ji is a temple of Nichiren Buddhism called "Hongaku-san Jōju-in." It also bore a responsibility called "Furegashira," which included controlling temples in the entire Kasai area and communicating the orders of the Shogunate's commissioner of temples and shrines.
