This book was handwritten by Asakura Kagehira (also known as Kusakabe Kagehira) and published in 1712. It is about an interview he had with an old Buddhist monk named Jōsai, who stayed in Ryukyu at a young age. Asakura Kagehira, the author, was a shogunal retainer and was also knowledgeable about government official rituals and their origins. Arai Hakuseki is his brother-in-law. His common name (tsūshō) was Magoemon, and his adulthood name (azana) was Kunsai. He also had the pen name (gō) of Nanzan.
