The legend grew like the willow on the shore of Koyasu's pond.


Tokyo is a city that was finally opened to this person for 400 years, but Kobo Daishi has come to this place before I knew it.


In Yanaka-Shimizu town after Ueno park, Shimizu, which was originally famous for Shimizu | Inari, was nearby.


Before this fresh water hadn't come out yet, an old mother put a tub on her head, and a master came to a place where she was carrying water from a distance and drank the water.


It is said that it would be difficult to draw water like this every day after getting old, but not only that, I answered that I have only one child and have been ill for a long time, so I am in trouble. ..


Then, the master thought for a while and was a solitary bow in his hand, digging steadily at the ground, and then this water began to spring from there.


It tasted like honeydew, cold in the summer and warm in the winter, and it was famous water that didn't spill into any hot weather.


What was the illness of my niece's child? After washing with this water, he was immediately cured.


Since then many people have come to receive it, and said that all illnesses will definitely improve if this water is pumped and washed.


At the Inari company, Kobo Daishi was enshrined at this time, so it prospered and the townhouses continued like they are now.

Tokyo City | Shimizu-cho, Shimotani-ku)


Noshu | The pond under the mountain of Yogenji Temple in Ashikaga is a pond with a diameter of only three shaku, but this is also said to be Kojimizu by Kobo Daishi, and it seems that pious people will go and drink it. is.


An old woman came to a place where she was embarrassed with a baby because she lacked enough milk, and an unfamiliar traveling monk came to hear her story, prayed for a while, and then thrusted the ground with a cane. It seems that it springs up.


He said that he would grow up robustly, whether he drink it himself or put it in his child like milk.


I think that the fact that it was Kobodaishi meant that the people of Yogenji started to do good after a while.

 When the old good communication of the land and the people who listen to it disagree, the story becomes more and more troublesome.


When Daishi came to be known as a high-ranking monk, he had to bring an adorable young baby to the side of his niece again.


There are so many weird stories that I don't intend to elaborate on it, but the story of the spirits of women and women often mentioned in Japan was originally just the gods of the mother and the child who worshiped along the way.


Even though he was a weak red-haired figure, he had a mysterious power because he was a child of God.


My mother told me to hug me towards people passing by, so holding it for a while made me heavier and heavier.


The person who endured the heavy thing always received the treasure or the great power.


After that, the maternity turned into the ghost of an ordinary person, when it came to the point that he met another master and was saved by the law.


But it's funny that ghosts come with their children, and giving luck doesn't like it anymore.


There was some other reason for this.


Depending on the land, it is said that at night, it is called a pine tree or a stone, and a baby's crying voice is heard at the brim of a bridge or at the mouth of Osaka in the middle of the night. There is also a land where there is some news.


Or, there was another woman, and at night, she was troubled by the red dragonfly, and when she went under the pine tree and stood there, a pilgrimage monk passed by and embraced her.


Then he lighted the pine twig and showed the light to his child, and he stopped.


After that, in the house of a child who enshrines God under this pine, and at night, there is also a place where the twigs are broken and turned into a fire of light.


In the vicinity of Usahachiman in Kyushu, this monk is called a human bodhisattva instead of the Kobo Daishi.
