The purpose of this research is to clarify the spreading process of the legends about architectural remains of Juraku Palace, Fushimi Castle and Toyokuni Shrine. As a first step, this paper examines what is written about the legends in the topography of Kyoto in the late seventeenth century.
In some topographies, there were mentions about the tenshu (main keep) of Fushimi Castle that it had been moved to Fukuyama Castle. There were also stories that, at the destruction of Juraku Palace, its buildings had been moved to some places, but not with their specific names. Stories about the legends as such are told already, but these were not yet paid much attention at that time as in the later period.
