Some people said that the Bodhisattva Bodhisattva would walk around the villages with the appearance of a bodhisattva Hachiman, but I don't think there is such a strange monk, so I, etc. I think the word mother, or mother, is an ancient remnant of this belief in God.


The god of mother and child, Koyasu, is still enshrined in the Kanto region.


It is a stone statue of a noble lady holding a child.


The niece was just a woman.


It was originally a word to say that my parents' sister was my aunt, or my second daughter, who should be an aunt later, was my aunt and my countryside.


Because he thought of it like an old woman, it eventually became a terrifying stone statue, like the old lady of Sanzugawa.


Even before Buddhism came to Japan, the god of Koyasu's nun was enshrined on the edge of the pure spring.


Even after a thousand years after Kobo Daishi passed away, new Shimizu was always discovered, and the so-called Daishi Well, the legend of Odaishi Water, flows with it.


The one who is still alive in the countryside of Japan was our niece.


Therefore, this god was found on the side of the road, on the pass, out of the open fields, on the banks of the spring where the traveler's delight was drawn. I think that is the name because he worshiped such a niece and a child.


Even the Ukonako in Hakone has forgotten the old legend, but there must have been one story about the discovery of that hot spring.


In addition, please be careful when you look at it. In the old Japanese story, there are still many beautiful and intelligent children standing up with their nieces.


One-eyed fish


Next to this, I have nothing to do with children, but let's talk a little about fish with one eye in the pond legend.


Why did fish have only one eye?


We still don't really understand why, but these fish are usually found in the pond in front of the temple or in Shimizu beside the shrine.


The closest place to Tokyo is Ikuoji Temple in Kamikoido, and people with bad eyes often come to visit the pharmacist here, but at that time I always bring a river fish and visit the temple. It is said to be released in a small pond in front of.


Then, before I knew it, the fish had lost one eye.


In the summer, when it's flooding, I sometimes scoop up one-eyed fish in a small river downstream of the pond, but at such times it is said that this is a pharmacist's fish, so be sure to bring it back to this pond again. It means that I released it.

Joshu | At Soggi's Takagaki Myojin, there was a clean spring on the left side of the shrine.


It didn't drizzle, it didn't get clouded by heavy rain, and it flowed through a single town and fell into a large river, but only the eel that lived in the meantime had one eye.


It was said that when it went into the river, it would become two ordinary eyes, but nevertheless, the priestess of Myojin never eats only eel.

In Shinshu, one of the seven mysteries of Togakushi Unjoji was that the fish living in the spring water were all one eye.
