Around 1,500 years ago, when Emperor Keitai was in Echizen and was called Ohodo no Miko, a princess appeared upstream of the Okamoto River in the village and said, "This land is blessed with pure water, make paper here and make a living," and warmly taught the villagers how to make paper. The villagers the princess taught venerated her as Kawakami Gozen and built Okamoto Shrine in dedication. The shrine was erected in 1843, and is designated as an Important Cultural Property.
