Mt.Hakusan crosses three countries--Kaga, Echizen, and Mino. In order to become attached to the gods and buddhas, the base camp in the foothills of Mt.Hakusan is the place where everyone visits. These three countrie set up their own shrines in their countries, which had then become some strongholds along the way to the top of the mountain. They fought for the rights to build the temple on the top of the mountain. The right also included of ”incense tax”. The work of building the temples belonged to the monk in the temple which ranked the first in the ranch; and the villagers lived near the entrance of the mountain were in charge of building them. The existence is being proven by the ‘Hakusan Controversy’.The village called Ozou in the Hakusan main shrine and the village called Kazarashi and Ushikubi of the Yuki clan would be mentioned. In this article,we would put the focus on “The Story of TaiChou”. It recorded the relations between the temples in the ranches. Importantly, The context would show the tales of the village.
