お善鬼様伝説 The Legend of O-Zenki Sama - The Benevolent Demon
Further away to the North-East of Aoni hamlet is 岩手山 Mount Iwatesan. East of Mount Iwatesan is 戸隠村 Togakushi village and the village of
鬼無里村 Kinasa Mura, "Village without Demons".
Once upon a time there came a giant man to Kinasa, the "Village without Demons", and caused a lot of trouble. The villagers pulled together and confined the giant man into a hole near the bottom of Mount Iwatesan. A while later a traveller told the villagers that a giant man had appeared in Togakushi and helped the people there. He had passed through a kind of tunnel in the mountains and come to the other side, on the way changing his evil manners and became a good and helpful person. The people now called him O-Zenki Sama.
The villagers built a shrine for him, calling him あおに Aoni instead of あおおに Aooni and later the Chinese characters 青鬼 were used to spell the name of the hamlet.
He is also venerated as
Zenki Daimyojin 善鬼大明神

長野県北安曇郡白馬村大字北城17641
The building belonged to the 降籏家 Furuhata Family, built in 1908.
It was built to suit the silk farming of the region, facing South, with a large space below the roof for the silk worms. It became useless and empty in 2005 and was then revived as the O-Zenki no Yakata, a kind of local museum to welcome visitors and introduce the village culture.

Near the village is a 高原 highland and there is a 岩穴 boulder with a hole. The people from 戸石 Toishi came here to borrow zenwan 膳椀 trays and bowls. A supernatural being, the "Benevlent Demon" would bring the items and the villagers had to bring them back clean after using them for special gatherings with large crowds, like weddings and funerals.
One day a villager did not bring them back and since then, they were never borrowed again.

In other regions there are the same legends, very often a Kappa or a Tengu brings the goods.

Fuuma Kootaroo, Fūma Kotarō 風魔小太郎 Fuma Kotaro
(? - 1603)


source : dustin on facebook
drawing from the Hojo Godaiki (written by Joshin Miura, 1565-1644) depicting Fuma Kotaro and his band of rappa (ninja) raiding a Takeda camp.

He was like an ONI demon - 鬼のような異相の持ち主であったという

. Onipedia - 鬼ペディア - Oni Demons - ABC-List - Index - .

..............................................................................................................................................

- quote
... the name adopted by the leader of the ninja Fūma clan (風魔一党 Fūma-ittō) during the Sengoku era of feudal Japan. According to some records, his name was originally Kazama (風間).
The Fūma clan and Fūma Kotarō
The clan was based in Kanagawa Prefecture, specializing in horseback guerrilla warfare and naval espionage. According to some sources, the family has roots in the 10th century when they served Taira no Masakado in his revolt against the Kyoto government. The use of the name started with the first leader (jonin) of the clan: originally surnamed "風間" (Fūma), with a different kanji, it was later changed to homophone 風魔. Each subsequent leader of the school adopted the same name as its founder, making it difficult to identify them individually. This school was in the service of the Hōjō clan of Odawara.

Fūma Kotarō was the fifth and the best known of the Fūma clan leaders.
Born in Sagami Province (modern Kanagawa Prefecture) on an unknown date, he became notorious as the leader of a band of 200 Rappa "battle disrupters", divided into four groups: brigands, pirates, burglars and thieves. Kotarō served under Hōjō Ujimasa and Hōjō Ujinao. His biggest achievement came in 1580, when the Fūma ninja covertly infiltrated and attacked a camp of the Takeda clan forces under Takeda Katsuyori at night, succeeding in causing severe chaos in the camp, which resulted in mass fratricide among the disoriented enemies. In 1590, Toyotomi Hideyoshi laid siege to Odawara Castle, which eventually fell, and the Hōjō clan was forced to surrender.

When the Tokugawa shogunate came to power, the remnants of Fūma-ryū were reduced to a band of brigands operating in and around Edo. A popular but fictional story says that in 1596, Kotarō was responsible for the death of Hattori Hanzō, a famous ninja in the service of Tokugawa Ieyasu, who had tracked him down in the Inland Sea, but Kotarō has succeeded in luring him into a small channel, where a tide trapped the Tokugawa gunboats and his men then set fire to the channel with oil. Kotarō was eventually caught by the shogunate's special law-enforcement force, guided by his rival and a former Takeda ninja Kosaka Jinnai (高坂甚内), and executed through beheading by an order of Ieyasu in 1603.

- - - - - In folklore and popular culture

In a folk legend, he is often an inhuman figure: a supposedly part-oni monstrous giant (over 2 meters tall) with inverted eyes.
In fiction portrayals, Fūma Kotarō is often depicted as Hattori Hanzō's arch-rival. As the name Fūma literally means "wind demon", Fūma Kotarō's depiction is frequently more flamboyant, fantastical, and sometimes even demonic. In contrast, Hanzō is usually rendered with a relatively subdued appearance.
Kotarō is a player character in the video game Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny as a young ninja in the service of the Hōjō clan, also returning in the spin-offs Onimusha Tactics and Onimusha Soul. He is also a main character in the World Heroes fighting game series (as "Fuuma"), also featured in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum together with his main rival Hanzo.

Onimusha 鬼武者 Demon Warrior



- quote -
Onimusha (鬼武者, literally "Oni Warrior") is a series of video games by developer Capcom.
The series makes use of the historic figures that shaped Japan's history, retelling their stories with supernatural elements. Most of the games are of the action-adventure game genre, a combination of third person combat and puzzle solving, where the protagonist wields the power of the Oni, enabling them to fight the Genma, the main enemy of the series. As of 2012, Onimusha is Capcom's sixth biggest franchise, behind the Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man, Monster Hunter, and Devil May Cry series.

高蔵不動院 Takakura Fudo-In - O-Yakushi no Oni Matsuri 大薬師の鬼祭 Demon Festival
During the Shusho-E 修正会 rituals on the fifth day of the New Year at the Temple Takakura Fudo-In there is a ritual called
O-Yakushi no Oni Matsuri, "Festival of the Demons of Yakushi Nyorai". 12 men from nearby Atsuta, aged 25 and 42 are chosen to participate as Oni. On leap years there are 13 men.
The demon masks of the temple are made of strong thick paper and ward off evil influence for the coming year. The masks are imitations of the one's from the "Bull Festival of Kyoto" 京都牛祭 (太秦の牛祭).

The protector deity of this village is called オボシナサマ Oboshina Sama (Fudo Myo-O).

Its festival is on the 28th day of the 3rd lunar month, now on May 8. On the evening before the festival people put their boiled vegetables in a Bento lunch box and meet at the shrine, to eat it all together. They are not allowed to eat any meat on this occasion.
Then in 1956 some brave one eat some meat and what do you say - the next day was a huge fire in the hamlet and 17 homes burned down.

Near the place where the remains of the mansion of Shuten Doji are supposed to be there is a huge boulder. There is also a place where the river flows upstream when the demons wash the bloody robes; this is where the villagers later they build the 不動堂 Fudo Hall below the waterfall 千丈ヶ滝下 Senjogataki.
Even further up in the mountain, where Shuten Doji was defeated by Raiko Yorimitsu there is now the shrine
鬼獄神社 Onitake Jinja / 鬼嶽稲荷神社 Onitake Inari Jinja.
Raiko had prepared Shinben Kidokushu 神便鬼毒酒 a special rice wine with poison for the Oni and was thus able to kill it.

a demon wanted to enter the village of Onikobe, but Fudo killed him and burned the body.
From the ashes arose many many many mosquitoes which to our day suck the blood of the people.


............................................................................ Nara 奈良県
生駒市 Ikoma 鬼取町 Onitori Cho

En no Gyoja met a couple of Oni who were eating humans. He asked them not to do that any more but they did not listen to him. He hid in a cave but they wanted to give him human flesh to eat even there.
Then 不動明王 Fudo Myo-O comes along and pressured the couple not to eat humans any more. Now they promised to change their ways.
Zenki went to 洞川 Dorogawa (now a famous hot spring), and Goki went to 十津川 Totsukawa .

At 生駒山 Mount Ikomasan、En no Gyoja had a dream given to him by 孔雀明 Kujaku Myo-O.
He should capture the two Oni from the foot of Ikomasan and turn them into decent beings. He stayed in prayer for 21 days and on the last day, with 不動緊縛の法 Fudo Kinboku, a special ritual of Fudo Myo-O he could capture them.
So the Oni cut off their hair and became the pious disciples of En no Gyoja.

The mountain is now called Onitorisan 鬼取山 "Mountain of capturing the Demons",
and the village is still called that way, 鬼取 Onitori.

Fudo Iwa 不動岩 Fudo Rock
Once upon a time,
the bottom of the 阿蘇の盆地 Plain of Aso was a lake.
A demon tried to fill the lake with earch and carried earth to the place, but he broke the pole of his carrier. The earth fell down and this became 上萩岳 Upper Ogidake mountain and下萩岳 Lower Ogidake mountain.
The Demon became angry and pressed against the boulder 不動岩 Fudo-Iwa but could not move it. Since that time, there are the remains of the demon's head, back and both hands on the boulder.

. Oita 大分県の鬼伝説 Oni Demon Legends .



This formation was named in the Heian Period by a mountain ascetic who venerated Fudo Myo-O here. It has three Fudo Rocks, the front, middle and back Fudo. The highest Front Fudo, Mae Fudo 前不動 is 80 meters high and more than 100 meters in circumference.

There are three huge rocks on this hill in Yamaga city which are collectively called "Fudo Iwa" which means literally immovable rocks. These rocks are individually known as: Mae-Fudo, Naka-Fudo, and Ato-Fudo.
Mae-Fudo is the biggest one, and from here you have a great view of mountain and sunset.

There is a story about these rocks that once upon a time,
Fudo-Iwa and Hikodake (Mt. Hiko, located in Yamaga city) were step-brothers. Their mother always treated only Fudo-Iwa with affection because she gave birth to him, but treated the other Hikodake harshly.
One day,
the mother told them to try the pulling rope game with their neck. She said, I will give the family treasure of 3 balls handed down for long time to the winner. When they started the game, because he was always eating soft and tasty beans the head of Fudo-Iwa came off easily and fell into the Kubishi Pass where it remains turned into stone.
Now it is said
that the rest of the body of Fudo-Iwa is the Fudo Iwa at present. Because Hikodake was always eating hard beans, he grew so big and tough. There is a footpath around here to enjoy walking while looking at the seasonal flowers until you reach to the observatory.

Near the temple 安生寺 Ansho-Ji there are five families, who do NOT prepare chimaki 粽 ritual rice dumplings for the Boy's festival on May 5th and hishimochi 菱餅 red and white dumplings for the Girls's festival on May 3.
These families claim to be descendants of the Demons (Zenki and Goki). The Chimaki look like the tsuno 角 horns of an Oni and the Hishimochi look like oni no shita 鬼の舌 the tongue of an Oni, thus they feel it an insult against the ancestors to prepare them.
During the Setsubun rituals, they never chant
oni wa soto 鬼は外 but only fuku wa uchi 福は内.
. Setsubun Rituals and Oni .

奈良県 Nara 宇陀郡 Uda district 榛原町 Haibaracho

Families with the name 足立の安達姓 Adachi are descendants of Oni.
In the deep mountain there are three 古墳 Kofun mounds related to the Oni -
黒塚 Kurozuka, 鬼塚 Onizuka and 三ツ塚 Mitsuzuka.

The plain in front of the mounds is 安達ヶ原 Adachigahara. People claiming to be descendants from Oni might be
コロボックルの子孫 Korobokkuru descendants.

There lived an old woman in the village 笹楽 Sasara.
One day when she was eating chimaki 粽 ritual rice dumplings, she cut her lips. Since then the villagers of Sasara never prepare Chimaki for the Boy's festival rituals.

Mitsuzuka Mounded Tombs - Kofun
These are three square mounded tombs arranged from east to west on the south side of the Mausoleum of Empress Nakatsuhime.
From east, they are called Yashimazuka Mounded Tomb, Nakayamazuka Mounded Tomb, and Suketayama Mounded Tomb, respectively.
In 1978, large and small shura (wooden sleds) were discovered at the bottom of the surrounding moat between Yashimazuka Mounded Tomb and Nakayamazuka Mounded Tomb, which attracted wide attention from the public.

In ancient Japan, the term Yase Doji referred to the people who lived in the Yase district of Kyoto and worked for the area's Enryaku temple.
Despite their plebeian status, Yase Doji were prosperous and maintained strong connections with those in power, including emperors, aristocrats and shogun.
After the Meiji Era, they were even entrusted by the government to be the imperial koshi (palanquin) bearers.

When priest 相応和尚 So-O looked for a pure place to practise austerities, he found the river Katsuragawa to be just right. He pleaded with the local Water Deity 思古淵神 Shikobuchi-shin and got the place. The deity also gave him two attendants, Joki and Joman.
Their descendants are living there now for more than 1000 years, as the two families of
葛野常喜家 Katsurano Joki and 葛野常満家 Katsurano Joman. They take part in many rituals.

Once the priest 相応和尚 So-O of the temple 葛川息障明王院 Katsuragawa Sokusho Myo-O In Myo-O In in Shiga found a 霊木 divine tree in the waterfall basin and carved this statue of Fudo Myo-O out of it.

kidoo 鬼童 "child demon"


Kidomaru


. Kidoomaru 鬼童丸、鬼同丸 Kidomaru .
After Minamoto Raiko had killed the yokai Shuten Doji, all the girls he had kidnapped ("eaten") were set free to go home. But one had gone so out of her mind, she did not remember where she was from. She was pregnant and eventually gave birth to a baby with all teeth already there. This "Demon Child" 鬼童 Kido grew up and went to Kyoto, trying to kill the brother of Raiko. But he did not succeed and got caught himself.
Kidōmaru is known as both a robber and a magician ... He is the subject of legends of its own.

.........................................................................

and a modern version, appearing in games




:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Kidomaru 鬼童丸 learning magic from the Tengu


Utagawa Kuniyoshi 歌川国芳『鬼童丸』

- quote -
Physical description:
Kidōmaru seated cross-legged on the head of a giant python, his hands clasped and two wrapped pine-sprigs in his mouth, a dirk has been driven into the head of the python, around which small snakes are writhing while four tengu watch.

"Kidōmaru is known as both a robber and a magician... The instruction that he receives here from the tengu can only be described as a sort of mystical experience involving self-purgation - he accesses a side of himself that he hitherto was not fully aware of. This Kidōmaru is not derived from the usual source, the Zen Taiheiki, rather he seems to be inspired by Takizawa Bakin's yomihon, Shitennō shōtō iroku (Strange Story of the Eradication of the Wicked Four Retainers,1806). In this yomihon, Kidōmaru competes in practicing magic with Hakamadare Yasuuke. Kidōmaru conjures up a poisonous serpent, whereas Yasuuke produces an eagle.

In this print the head of the giant python is almost as arresting as the countenance of Kidōmaru and provides a second strong focal point. The aomatsuba (wrapped pine sprigs) likewise command the viewer's attention, as do other elements such as the flames and the small writhing snakes. The colours in this print are riveting in their bold juxtaposition of blue and red.

There are two types of tengu, one is winged but has a human face with a very long nose (yamabushi or 'mountain priest' tenfu), the other has a bird's head and a strong, curved beak (karasu or 'crow' tengu). Four of the latter type inhabit the bottom section of this image."
Quoted from: Japanese Warrior Prints 1646-1905 / by James King and Yuriko Iwakiri, p. 269.

niryuu no Matsu 二龍の松 Niryu no Matsu, "Pine like two dragons"

Some old trees have a strange demonic power.
The pine tree at the temple 参州長興寺 Choko-Ji is called "Pine like two dragons".



Once the tree turned into two children, who went to the head priest and asked him for 硯と紙 an inkstone and paper. When he gave it to them, they were much pleased and begun to write a poem on it.
"This will prevent any fire from destroying the temple!" they told the priest and then turned back into the two stems of the tree. The paper has become the special treasure and amulet of the temple ever since.

iki, itsuki 縊鬼 / いつき / kubire-oni 縊れ鬼 / くびれ鬼 strangler demon



- quote -
Have you ever felt a feeling of depression and disappear wash over you for no apparent reason. If so maybe you have been possessed by one sinister Yokai, 縊れ鬼(Kubireoni).
The Legend of the Strangle Demon
Legend tells of a man that drowned in a river under suspicious circumstances. So filled with hate and need for revenge his spirit transformed into a powerful Yokai named Kubireoni. The spirit now roams Japan possessing people. Those who fall under his possession are filled with a great feeling of depression and self loathing. The feelings are so strong and sudden that they are driven to suicide, usually by hanging. Hence the name Strangle Demon.

Kubireoni came into public knowledge around the Edo period thanks to a tale of a group of firefighters from a small town. They were a very close knit group as you can imagine for people in their line of work. One evening they decided to go out for drinks, but there was one in the group that had other plans. He told his colleagues that he couldn't go, but never gave a concrete reason as to why. He was fiercely adamant that he couldn't go drinking, which the group found a little strange.

The fire chief stepped in demanding the man to come drinking and forget about any prior commitments. At first he protested, but after a while he knew the chief wasn't backing down. Also with the added pressure from others in the group, he gave in and went drinking.

The evening went by with the firefighters knocking back drink after drink becoming merry. Soon the man forgot all about the plans he had. As the night was drawing to a close, the group could hear people screaming in terror just outside the Izakaya (Japanese pub). Fearing the worst they ventured outside to see what was happening. They could see a large old oak tree at the end of the street. From one of its branches a man was hanging by his neck.

The firefighters were taken aback by what they were looking at. The chief turned to the man who previously stated he had plans, asking "What plans did you have actually?" The man stood there thinking about it deeply, but his mind drew a blank. "For the life of me I can't remember now" he replied. "That's because you never had any plans. You see you were possessed by Kubireoni. If I hadn't stopped you, it would have been you hanging for the tree. Sadly it seems however that tonight Kubireoni still managed to find a victim." explained the chief. The man dropped to his knees in shock and disbelief. How easily it could have been him.

For me personally I feel there is an important message embedded in this tale. If you know someone who seems depressed and is acting out of character, it's important to keep them close and remind them that people are there to help. What do you take from this story?
For this post I referenced Nihon Yokai Taizen written by Shigeru Mizuki.

獅子谷にて鬼子を産みし事 Oni-ko demon child born in Shishidani



Once upon a time, a couple in a drinking bar killed a customer and stole his money. Later a child was born to the woman, which begun to grow teeth at three months of age and its face looked very much like the customer they had killed. Out of fear they decided to kill the child too. Soon the woman became ill and died and the husband lost all his fortunes.
Other stories of this kind are known, for example in the story collection
Inga monogatary 因果物語 Tales of Retribution by Suzuki Shōzō from 1661.
