Inscription:

Senju Kannon Kaisan Gensakujin Kaisan Gensakujin The superior is a person from Inshu. Of these, if my mother is tormented / I will throw it away in the mountains as an unscrupulous child / But neither birds nor beasts will harm this / I will not die even if I swallow three days' milk / I will pick up the villagers and raise them / When I was fifteen years old, I climbed Mt. Ei and shaved my hair / I heard my mother's death and came to Mt. The lord of this mountain, Achizakagami / Revealed as a hired husband / Also, tens of thousands of Inokas came and crushed the rock cave / The unevenness was made flat and the strange state / If you ask Tenshi / Finally, the Buddhist temple was built. / Living in the mountain of Jojin 74 years / March, 3rd year of Jotoku I'm lonely at the age of 117 with a fixed seal / If the condition changes further, people will finally worship / Rotten mother The Zaru is like the Kochiho seal of Echigo.
