This is because rice will not come in unless it is from the south, and if it does not come, the present race will not be established.


In the present race, not only the peasants make rice, but the imperial family cannot celebrate God without rice.


Rice is always included in the food when we celebrate God.


Therefore, I am convinced that Japanese people are inseparable from rice.


Some people say that rice has come later, but unless rice is brought from the beginning, there is no explanation of faith and customs that accompany it.


Neither archaeologists nor anthropologists think of this at all.


The most extreme is the equestrian folk theory.


The Japanese people moved on the horse and moved from North China to the south, and they crossed the sea with their horses.


The reason for this is that there are few relics related to equestrians in the first half of the burial mound, and suddenly in the second half, things of the fine horse appear.


Later, it must have come with horses.


The rice has been made by the people who have been there before, and races that have never eaten rice brought horses and became rulers.


Among us, even though it was not as complex as the imperial family took the initiative in harvesting rice and was present in the Enki ceremony, there was a substitute Otsuchi festival in the national festival, There is a Shinsetsu festival at the festival in Miyanaka, and each shrine has a ceremony to follow this.


Even if the imperial family was led by the people, the rice festival was the ritual that began to conquer the indigenous people's spirit after the equestrian people came to Japan. Or?


た め In order to make rice satisfactory every year, it must be very difficult.


As a result of both the imperial family and the citizens, the Xinjiang ceremony took place.


In this sense, it can be said that Mr. Mikasamiya's research on the Shinsetsu festival has gained the most qualified person.


Grain spirit, etc.


Approximately 120 years ago, there was an unfortunate scholar named Wilhelm Manhard in Germany.


He mainly examined the North Sea coast and pointed out that there is a very careful thing in the seeding of wheat in this area, the faith of grain inheritance.


In other words, there is a corn god, and a god called corn mazaa gives birth to a corn child that will become the seed for the next year.


The cereal mother lays and raises the kid, and for that purpose, there is a festival of the birth shop, and the second grain receives the spirit (soul) from the cereal mother at the birth shop.


Religion scholar Uno Azusa-kun walked in Malay for a long time, and published a big book called “rice ritual in Malaysia”, but there is a similar faith in the report.


By the time Manhard discovered, the public did not deal with this, especially religious scholars even said that they should not say that.


So he died unfortunately, but after that, a book by Professor Fraser (the author of "Golden Bau") that we read was written by a scholar, Manhart, about 50 years ago. I found that I was giving up a lot, saying that I had left such a thing and died.


It wasn't until then that Professor Uno's report revealed that he knew this kind of belief in wheat, and that the same habits remained in rice in Malaysia.


According to the story of Eiichiro Ishida, Manhard's theory is now very popular, and Catholic school monks are also studying.


This is not just the coast of the North Sea, but Fraser's book “Corn Spirit” draws a lot of examples from Asia Minor. The center is Italy.


More recently, when he was walking in Mexico and Guatemala in Central America, the Indian corn was found to have faith in the production of cereals among blacks.
