A long time ago, There was evil fox that had a white face, golden fur and nine tails. So, people called the fox "Hakumen-Kinmo-Kyubi no Kitsune." The nine tailed fox turned itself into a beautiful woman and committed one crime after another in China and India.
About eight hundred years ago, the nine tailed fox came to Japan. The fox turned itself into a beautiful woman again. Her name was Tamamo-no-mae. She was a courtesan under the Japanese Emperor and planned to destroy the country.
But a diviner, Abe-no-Yasunari, found out ther conspiracy. So, the nine tailed fox ran away to the plains of Nasu and started to commit crimes again. Then, The Emperor ordered Kazusa-no-suke and Miura-no-suke to kill the fox with 80,000 troops. Finally, it was killed, But, it became a poisonoous stone. It killed very thing that comes into contact with it.
The stone was said to have been destroyed in the Nanboku-cho period. Finnaly, Tamamo-no-mae could see a cloud of white smoke and the stone was splite into three pieces and one of them stayed here.
Since the, people have called it "Sesshou-seki."
