It was started excavation construction on April 5 in the next year. In Mutsuura Tsu (mutsuranotsu), Hojo used this by excavation of Kiridoshi as outport of Kamakura in natural good harbor which prevented heavy seas. In Thailand, we gave Minoru Hojo Thailand (seed do) of younger brother this important ground. As for (seed time), we set up hall on this ground in grain of true Thailand and it lasted for kenji (we get tired), *ken (sadaaki), *sho (Sadayuki) and four generations afterward and we called ourselves and we founded designation name temple and Kanazawabunko and developed Kanazawa (kanesawashi).
