Inscription:

Mibu Yoshikado's loyal retainer / Sadamoto remonstrated with his lord's arrogance / His family property was confiscated / In this place / Chion is far away / Coming to the battle / That person will soon disappear / Hearing this, I was perplexed, but out of necessity, I returned to the house nearby, while I was resting from my labors. Former Kanashimi ni hezuya / Ariken three days ago / Together with the leaves / Disappeared with the dew / A three-year-old / Left behind a child / Kerasu, but with the sunshine / Shamon that / Deeply Oh, look at me / Good upbringing / May I serve you as a samurai / Pray to the Kannon Bah mysterious one day / I met Yoshimon's / This is the kind of person / If you say it's a child Yoshikado / Sighing, my loyal retainer, Sadamoto / From now on, regretting the loss later / Genta Hayashi / Yoshimoto / Named him Genta Hayashi / Yoshimoto / Giving him a former territory / Ordered to reward his father's achievements / The Lotus Sutra was written/copied by himself / Tegen / The Bodhisattva of the husband and wife / For the sake of that / Built a shrine next to the mound / In the shape of Tegen's gender name / Sokujorinji Temple / And after that, Kannon / Enshrined / Junrei / Sacred Land and Ha / Narari Mantei Oga Shimbun
