『青空文庫』にある作品を『Google Translate』で英訳してみました。



The nostalgic nature of the neighbours, who are enthused over the years, has to give unlimited excitement even on study.


Even so, what is particularly moving our hearts is the fact that the arrivals of the hidden village of the sea called Niruya are transmitted one after another from this direction.


A beautiful maiden of the sea god who thought nothing but a dream, a spirit child as a mother of it, a number of gifts such as a bastard of a martial arts and a word of wisdom, etc. are just born as human fantasy It is not a matter of course, but it is also possible to say that it is this comparison that reminds us that something based on upper generation facts, such as sacred aspiration, is lying on the bottom.


Whether or not it was an opportunity permitted only by our islands.


Or, under certain conditions, it may not be attempted even between two or more distant islands that are now isolated.


I would like to get close to such problems.

一三 火と稲の伝承

The tradition of fire and rice


Looking at the records of the islands, there are a number of very important things that are first reported to have come from Nirya.


Although each description can not be made long, what I can almost prove at present is fire in the first place.


Of course there are no people who see it as historical fact, but the islanders who wished the eastern horizon every time, there is a constant fire that shines in Kashiko, and Teda (the sun) is newly added from among them Imagine what was born, and it is no wonder if it came to confirm it by the next experience.


There are various theories in the word source of Teda, but I do not doubt that it is interpreted as the justification of the light.


It seems that the formation of this one word was before the unification of the island, Miyama | even before the rule, and an example that praises the main lord of each Ryori's Ryoji and the world as "Omoro" It is found inside.


Perhaps it was based on the idea of making a manager of fire or a person who could give fire, and the origin of his authority was also Niriya.


Therefore, if the king was to be regarded as only one great teda, the interpretation had to be changed naturally.


Second, there are rice seeds that return the source to Nirya.


Nakayama Sekan and so on are written simply as "Ama, Miku, and rising up to the top of the grain of a grain and soaking five seeds." The records up to are all in line with different messages.


One feature to note is that among the five seeds that were initially placed in the white weir and drifted to the beach in Kudaka, there were no rice seeds.


So, if Amamikyo went into heaven and sent a spear to Niraikanai, and asked for it on the third hundred days, he came back with a bit of three ears, and it is in "Oh, depending on the ceremony," Amami Oshima On the other hand, the crane is supposed to bring in the rice field, and it is somewhat close to the legend that it was around Ise's Shingu.


On the other hand, the story of the island construction state of Okinoerabujima, which is an oral monument, was written for the first time by Iwakura-kun, but after all the ancestors of the island were taught by the god of heaven, and the leek went to the island It is supposed to have sought rice seeds.


At that time, it was quite similar to the faith of our country's Shinjo that the great lord of the leek responded to the matter and said that it was not possible to put out the species because it had not yet made the first festival.


The island Coda country Coda (Island Konkuken), despite the fact that it was at the same time, just trying to come back, plucking the ear of the rice gently and hiding it in a coffin and trying to return it, but the god of leek Was killed and was overwhelmed, and it was dead in a place called Nishito Hara Ameno Kata Hara.


Heavenly God worries to use it, let him drink medicine and revive, bring the rice spikes back to the island of Nira and touch the original spikes, and after the festival of the first ear, receive the same seeds again. Let me come.


Asanatsunuunigundani that it still exists on this island


It is said that it is the beginning of rice.


Half of this story is distributed throughout Japan, and Kansai is exclusively an oat seed, but Owa generally conveys rice as softly brought from Tengu or Tang soil.
