East of Hokokuji Temple along Highway 204, there is the Aotobashi Bridge. Cross the bridge, continue south about 20 meters and there is a stone historical marker that reads:
When speaking about the good deeds of generals in Kamakura, the names of Hōjō Tokiyori and Hōjō Tokimune are generally given. However, we must not forget the achievements of Fujitsuna Aoto, who served both generals, and who also made a significant contribution. Fujitsuna had many anecdotes. One night, when crossing the river, he fell and dropped his money into the water. The story of buying a torch in and looking for his money in the river was especially talked about by many people. This place is said to be the ruins of the Fujitsuna mansion.
Erected in March of 1921 by the Kamakura Seinendan Young Adult Association.
