Abo Memorial Tower (town-designated cultural property)
This five-ringed tower was created in 1844 by the village youth to remember the Abo Family who governed the Amarume region and took up arms over the generations for the Minamoto Clan, Hojo Clan, and Ashikaga Clan during the 200 years of the Muromachi period. It stands on Jokei Temple grounds (town-designated cultural property).
