Utsunomiya`s Folktales

Kagamiga-ike Pond

Later, when a child did fishing in this pond, something got stuck with a fishing line. It was a wonderful mirror that he pulled up. Very much surprised with it, the neighboring people dedicated this mirror to Futaarayama-jinja Shrine. From this story, it is said that people came to call this pond “Kagamiga-ike.”
