"This is an old ferry at Kizu river. When people build Heijyou-kyo and Toudai temple, lots of timbers were gathered here. In addition, until the opening of railways, people often use this to transport supplies. In Kizu river, there were 16 points of ferry between Kamo and Yodo river and 7 of these were in Kyotanabe. That of Tono took over from Kawara to Tono. That of Mizushi took over Tehara river."
