This area was formerly an island shaped like a turtle. It was later connected to the mainland and Kame-mura (Turtle Village) was established. The well dug there was called "Kamenoi" (Turtle Well). Sometime later, Kame-mura became confused with Kamenoi and the village came to be called Kameido-mura. It is said that during the Edo Period, it was called Kamedo-mura without the "i" sound. Due to its name, many people brought turtles here. Today, there are still many turtles in the pond, but most are imported species.
