Some famous mountains have a famous Oni for themselves.
They are listed under the name of the mountain.


. Yama no Kami 山の神 God of the Mountain .

. Japanese Legends - 伝説 民話 昔話 – ABC-List .

yama no sei, sansei 山精 spirit of the mountain
The wife of 猟師善助 the hunter Zensuke went to the mountain forest to gather firewood. Somehow she lost conscience. When she returned to herself and went home, she found herself pregnant. Eventually she gave birth to 岩八 Iwahachi. The same happened again a few years later and this time she gave birth to 喜八 Kichachi.
All this happened because the Spirit of the Mountain and 山鬼 the Demon of the Mountain had an adventure with her.
Both Iwahachi and Kihachi had bright red hair.

Sansei Zatsumi Kijin 山精雑魅鬼神 (さんせいざつみきじん)
A kind of 精霊悪鬼 bad Oni with more knowledge and power than a human being, alive in the muontains, trees and other natural phenomenon.
『法華験家訓蒙』に述べてあるところによると、明治の初年頃、鎌倉地方で鉄道建設の際、古墳の移転工事を行った人夫が、あるいは発狂し、あるいは死者の姓名を名乗って、その墳墓を発掘したことを怒り、奇異の挙動をなしたのを、世間の人が見て、墓の亡魂のたたりであると恐怖して、祠を作り亡魂を祭祀したことがあったという。
『訓蒙』には、これは亡魂のたたりでなく、山精雑魅の類のしわざであると説いている。
その根拠として「仏説灌頂経』第七に、凡夫の塚塔には善神の守護無く、常に山精雑魅鬼神が付着し、飯食を求め、変化をなして世人に恐怖を与えるのを、凡夫が神や魂のしわざとなすのは、邪をもって正とし魅をもって神となす誤りであると説いてあることを引用している。

tenjin 天人 heavenly maiden
A man named from the Miura clan named 三浦左近国清 Miura Sakon Kunikiyo lived in 太田村別所 Ota village 別所館 Besshonotate. He went to the Fudo Waterfall at 馬場村 Babamura to pray for a wife. That night Fudo appeared in his dream and told him, that in this world there was no wife to fit him. He should go to the pond at 五台山 Mount Godaisan where the tenjin 天人 heavenly maiden come to bath and snatch one of their hagoromo 羽衣 feather mantles. Kunikiyo did as he dreamt, got the mantle and went back home. Soon the maiden came to his home and wanted her mantle back, but eventually she stayed on and became his wife. They had two sons and one daughter.
When the children had grown up, the maiden took her mantle, said good bye and went back to heaven. Kunikiyo was very sad and his daughter was even more sad. She eventually threw herself into the pond and died. Now there is even a stone memorial in her memory at the pond, 姫塚 Himezuka.

and also
元亨3年(1323)、相馬重胤が下総から行方郡に入部した際、家臣の太田兵衛に迎えられて太田村にある別所館を居城にしたという。別所館にはそれ以前、鎌倉幕府の御家人である三浦義澄の末裔といわれる三浦左近国清という人物が住んでおり、相馬重胤の入部と共に館を明け渡したといわれる。
重胤は別所館に3年居住した後、嘉暦元年(1326)、行方郡小高村堀内に小高城を築いて移った。

shinmeisama しんめい様
At the old family home of the 渡邊 Watanabe there was a 神明宮 Shinmei Shrine venerating the deity Shinmei Sama.
Eventually there was no successor to the family line to care for the Shrine. So Shinmei Sama called on Fudo for help and sent an old blind man to continue the worship.

郡山市 Koriyama 湖南町 Konan

Two farmers were sleeping in the fields during lunchtime, when suddenly a large boulder came rolling down and stopped right beside them. "This must be a stone to venerate Kannon Bosatsu"!
Then some specialists came from Aizu Wakamatsu and said it should be placed at the Waterfall of Kitamori 北森の滝 where Fudo Myo-O is venerated.
So the villagers carried the stone near the waterfall, shounting "Kan man baran" all the way. カンマンバラン Kanmanbaran is the local name of the Fudo Myo-O.
Kanmanboron, Kanman Boron カンマンボロン.
