Sanai Hashimoto, who was a retainer of Fukui domain, rushed through life like a meteor in Japan at the end of Edo Period and his life ended at the age of only 25. I visited the places associated with him such as the site of the residence where the well used for his bath is preserved, his graveyard in a park which was the precincts of his family temple, a shrine where enshrines Sanai as a deity etc, by street car, community bus and foot.
