Seta Bridge: The Tales Of Samurai,Dragon Princess & Giant Centipede.


I’m here at Seta Bridge,Shiga Prefecture searching for the truth behind the tales of "Rice-bag Toda” - the story dating back about 800 years ago.When Emperor Tsuchimikado fell into a critical condition, it turned out that the illness was caused by a huge centipede living in Mt. Mikami. Then Fujiwara no Hidesato shot three arrows at the same time from the bridge and they hit the huge centipede. Its head fell into the precinct of Sumiyoshi Shrine, the body into Katsube Shrine and the tail onto the ground near Karahashi Bridge in Seta village.
