Aji-shiki: Chronicle of Shinto God

Aji-shiki  (Adi-Sikï-TAkA-Pikone-no-kAmi)  was the Shinto god who created Mount Mo-Yama. He had a fast mood. He carried a sword that was so long as a span of ten fingers.

Aji-Shiki was a detailed pal of the Shinto god Ame-no-Wakahiko, or the Heavenly Young Boy, who was a trusted emissary of the gods. The two male gods appeared very a lot alike.

Ame-no-Wakahiko was despatched by the gods of heaven to Idzumo, the Central Land of the Reed Plains, to report on the mischievous earth gods that had been ruining the land. But he preferred the land a lot that he married a princess and by no means returned to heaven. After eight years, the offended gods despatched a pheasant chicken to inform Ame-no-Wakahiko to return. The god’s spouse was afraid of the chicken, so her husband shot it. When the arrow landed in heaven, the gods threw it again to earth, the place it struck Ame-no-Wakahiko within the chest.

The spouse’s cries of grief had been heard all by means of heaven. The useless god’s mother and father floated down to Idzumo and constructed a mortuary home to bury their son in. With household and pals, they celebrated his reminiscence with song and dance for eight days and nights.

When Aji-Shiki arrived, the heartbroken kinfolk mistook him for his useless pal. His mother and father embraced Aji-Shiki and clung to his fingers and ft. Aji-Shiki was insulted to be mistaken for “an unclean corpse.” But the household wouldn’t pay attention. So, he unsheathed his sword, swung it, and minimize down the mortuary home.

Then he kicked the home excessive into the air. When it landed, the influence brought on the moun- tains of Mo-Yama to spring up alongside the higher banks of the Awimi River within the land of Mino. The legend is about down within the kojiki, the chronicle of the Shinto gods. It provides that as Aji-Shiki flew away, his youthful sister sang a song about him, referred to as the Pina-Buri, to mark the occasion for divine historical past.
