A traveling priest(Waki) meets a couple’s city people (Shite Tsure)in the village of Safu in Mutsu. The woman has a cloth woven with bird wings and the man has a beautiful decorated tree. When I try hearing, I know that all of them are famous these days and the cloth is thin cloth which is “difficult to get breasts”. The man has a Noshikigi tree and he says that he stands at the gate of the woman’s house as a sign of love. A woman takes in the man’s Nishiki, who should meet, and leaves it as it is for things that she does not want to meet, so it is said that there is a Nishikizuka that has been erected for three years and finally died, and was truck with the Nishiki. When they guided the monk to the mound, they disappeared into the mound. (Coming middle)
When the monk reads the sutras at night and makes a memorial service, the souls of the couple (later shite and later tsure) appear.” If you don’t enter the bottom of the abyss, your moments and neck will change (Takaoka-shinno).”
The woman weaves a thin cloth machine in the mound, and the man hits the closed gate with Nishikigi. However, there is no answer from the inside and the sound of the machine is mixed with the sound of insects like “Kirihataricho- Kirihara Richo”. In this way, currently of three years later” Nishikigi isn’t in a thousand bundles and when it’s time to look inside the sword that is unknown to people (mystery in the sleeve).” he was finally able to meet and dead person danced a dance of joy (early dance).
Although it is a beautiful night-time dance, the monk’s dream awakened at dawn and the mound of Nonaka was just left there where the pine wind blew.
「野 守」 No Mori
One the way to Omine Katsuragi, Yamabushi of Mt.Dewahakuro stopped by Kasuga no Sato in Yamato. It’s a peaceful spring time. There was an old man (Shite) who was coming, so when I asked him the name of Shimizu here, he answered that it was a “Mirror of No Mori”. The old man seems to be No Mori.
In the past, when emperor Yuryaku used to hunt, the hawk (small hawks used for falconry) did not return while flying, so when No Mori (guardian of the forbidden field) was be taken to go to find it, he answered that “It’s waiting on the tree”. Another theory is that the No Mori’s mirror is a mirror possessed by a demon that protects the field and it is also a mirror to look into the human mind. “I’m looking at the No Mori’s mirror of the Hawk, I’m thinking about it” is a song from a new and old collection.
When Yamabushi asked to look at the demon’s mirror, the old man told to look at the water mirror and disappeared into the mound. (coming middle)
When this Yamabushi who has earned a long history and has legal power, prays with all his heart, but before long, the figure of a demon with a silver-shining mirror (later Shite) appears from the mound. It is a powerful and ferocious, terrifying figure (dance). The demon god reflects all sides of the north, south, east and west in the mirror, in addition, the heavens and the basement are completely reflected and the earth is trampled, after striding, he had returned to the abyss again.
No Mori’s mirror can be seen in Kiyosuke Fujiwara’s Okugisho Minamoto no Shunrai’s Mumeisho, and Kensho Hobashi’s Sodenakasho.
