Although only Nanushi Falls exists at present, Oji was blessed with water during the Meiji Period as shown by the fact that it gained fame for its "seven waterfalls." Shibusawa Eiichi realized the value of the land and founded the Shoshi Company here (later the Oji Paper Mill). Ignorant of the dangers of dioxin and other toxins, people relaxing at the restaurants and the teahouses considered the smoke from the factory chimney to be a welcome example of modernization.
