Takaishigami Jinja Shrine in Ichikawa City is on the north-east corner of the Route 14th called Chiba Kaido Highway and Kioroshi Kaido Highway. This shrine in residential area was introduced in Edo Meisho Zue (a travel guide book of Edo in Edo Period).
According to Edo Meisho Zue, the principle image dedicated at the shrine was a statue of a god of war riding on a horse. Takaishigami Jinja Shrine was managed by Taifukuji Temple belonging to Nichiren Shu Sect near Nakayama Hokekyoji Temple. The annual festival is held in September 9th. The book also tells that a retainer of Satomi, Tokifusa Masaki fought furiously at the 2nd battle of Konodai in 1564 was buried dignity.。
Moreover, Tanesada Chiba, a powerful daimyo of Shimousa in Kamakura period, donated some pieces of lands in Takaishigami to the venerable Nichiyu, the 3rd abbot of Nakayama Hokekyoji Temple and his son, so the area was called Takaishigami at that time and the shrine had been there before because it was said that the district name Takaishigami named after the shrine's name.
Anyway, there is no name of Tokifusa in the family tree of Masaki Family in Shimousa. Maybe the busho buried in the shrine could be Nobushige that some said that he went to Konodai and fought hard, and he lost his lives at the battle.
Takaishigami Jinja Shrine has the long history and some stories related to the beginning of Nakayama Hokekyoji Temple and the battles in Sengoku Period struggling for the supremacy of Kanto Region.
