It is said that a group of Ako-roshi who successfully attacked Kira's residence in Honjo Matsuzaka-cho, stopped by at Chikumaya Miso store and were offered amazake (a sweet drink made from fermented rice) and rest on their way back from Hitotsume-dori, as they crossed over Eitai-bashi Bridge and headed to Takanawa Sengakuji Temple. A monument retelling this history was built at the entrance of Chikuma building in 1963.
