This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

railroad from Osalca to Nan, a distance of 25 miles, and then ly the 
Nara Kaido, whioli is a good road for jinrikisha or bic}'cles, 33 miles 
to Kyoto. There is also a line of coadies, whidli, however, are not 
to be recommended to f oreignei's. A railroad connecting Nara and 
Kyoto will l« oomplated early in 1895. 

Fushimi Steamers, 'riiese ply between Omlia and Fnshimi, 
the latter city being alx>ut 6 miles from Kyoto. 

Tokaido. ^Thia la one of the old roads running from Kyoto to 
Tokyo ; and for a large part of the way follows the same course 
taken by the Tdkaido Railroad. Tourists are not likely to use it ez- 
oepi for the sliort section between Kyoto and dtsu. 

Xeikakn Railroad. A diarter has been obtained for tliis 
road wliidh will oonneot Kyoto with Maizuru, a naval station on tlie 
west coast; and Miyazu wliidi has been made a special port for 
exports. It is hoped thai tlie short section between Kyoto and 
Aiashi-yama will be' completed before tlie opening of the National 

Tamba Kaido. ^^s highway leads to Kameoka and other 
prominent towns in the province of Tamba* It is used in going to 
the place where boats are taken for the descent of the Rapids. The 
road continues to Maizuru and Miyazu mentioned in tlie preceding 
paiagrapli. One mile beyond tlie latter city is tlie Amanohasliidate, 
one of the noted views of Japan, whiuli is a narrow spit of sand 
about two miles in length and covered witli aged pines. 


Those planning to visit Kyoto must remember that, being outside 
of Treaty Limits, it is necessary tliat they be provided with passports. 
According to the present regulations, passports available for all parts 
of Japan and good for one year may be ol^ained tlirough tlie legation 
or consulates of the couniry to wlucli tlie applicant belongs. In 
addition to these, the prefectnral olllcials of Kobe and Osaka are 
authorized to grant passes for Kyoto and vicinity that are good for 
20 days. Persons desiring to visit the Palaces must obtain special 
p^rmita througli tlieir legation. ^

Kyoto, Bometiines oalled Saikyo, ^ ^^^^ third largest city of 
Japan, botli Tokyo and Osaka having more inhabitants. Tlie name 
Kyoto signifies ** Capital/' as the oity was for more tlian a thousand 
yeaxB the rasidenoe of the Bmperors. On old ma^ts printed in 
Europe and America it is often designateil as Moaco. Tliis wctttl, 
whioli aocoiding to the present ^tem of transUteratiou is Miyako, 
also signifies ** Capital." Siikyo, meaning ** Western Capital " came 
into use in ldG3 when the name o! Yedo was changed to Tokyo 
(''Eastern Capital") pieparatory to the removal thituer of the 
Imperial residence. In ancient times the city was also known as 
HeianJo, the *<City of Peace." 

Kyoto is situated in ktitude 3oP V 7" N. and longitude 135^ 
467" E. and is elevated about 102 foet abo^e the sea. It is near 
the center of tlie province of Yamashiro, at tlie northern extremity 
of a fertile plain which extends southward until it joins tlie great 
plain stretching to Osaka Bay. On three sides it is guarded by well- 
wooded mountains ; the most prominent being Atago on the west, 
Kurama on tlie north, Hiei to the noi'th east, and the somewlmt 
lower hills on the eastern edge of the city whidi separate it from 
Lake Biwa and give so many beautiful "sites for the temples tliat 
fringe their lower slopes. 

Rivers. Tlurough the eastern part of tlie city (lows the Kamo 
Biver which is formed by tlie union of three streams that rise 
among the hills to tlie nortli. Two of these come togeilier near Ml 
Kurama, and just before entering the city are joined at 3liimo^amo 
by the tliird. The Kamo unites with the Katsura River in the village 
of Toba^ a southern suburb of Kyoto. Tlie bed of the Kamo as 
it traverses tlie city is about 360 feet wide. Like many other 
rivers of Japan, its bed during a large part of the tune is simply a 
long narrow plain of stones and sand with some scanty vegetation, 
one or two narrow streams, and a few scattered pools. It is only as 
heavy rains swell tlie mountain stieams and llood the valleys that 
a turbulent current fills the whole cliannel and occasionally over- 
flows the banks. It was in reference to these troublesome innnda* 
iions that an ancient Emperor, when congratulated on tlie extent 
of his power, replied, **11iere remain three things which I have 
not yet found wajrs of controlling — ^Uie throw of the dice, the 
turbulent priests of Ht Hiei, and the Kamo Biver." 


TIm m^m of Ihit riir«r ie noted for ita parity wliieh fits it for 
UMeliinf eloth and a1«o a kind of a aa i f— d, rMtmbling Iceland

and the Denaeiii BrtdgB. 

Tvo eanala witieli like tlie Kamo (law from north to aonUi,are 
alio ipnkan of aa ritera. One of tlioee, tlie Takaae Bitot, leasee Hie 
Kamo near Nijo 13Hd0e, mna nearly parallel witli the main stream 
about S6U feet to the ivest, «roMea it soon after leaving the dty, and 
then paaea on to Fnidiimi wliere it empties into tlie Tod6 River. 
This canal was dog near tlie eloae of the 16th oentoiy for the parpoee 
of oonteying timber and otlier materials need in the oonstmotion 
of the Inqperial Faboe. It waa planned bj the famous flnminokinm 
Bioi. (See pegs ). 

In the we n tf fu pert of tlie eity is Horikawa (Eioavated RiTsr), a 
eanal that was oonstmctsd in the time of tlie Emperor Kwanmm, 
the founder of Kyoto. A part of its water is derived from the Kamo, 
and part from a small stream eninring from the north; while 
rtirvni)y a hrandi of tlie Biwa Canal lias aiVlcd annilier portion. It ia 
inwnded 1ier«after to ntilize the water-power of this canal for some 
of tlic weaving establinliment^ in Ninliijin.

aarl homy utreets. Tlie buikhni; of Vcilo tn l:.9 i, with the increaning 
of the Tokn^iwa Stnignns did much to lessen tlie importanee 

of the imperial city. When Tedo beoame Tokyo and was made the 
pBpital, it drew thither not only persons directly oonneoted with the 
court but mai^ others from all classes of the people. Within the 
last few years, however, the renewal of old industries, together with 
the introduction of new mannfaotores, has brought to Kyoto renewed 
prosperity and a sliglit inarease in the number of its people. From 
1887 to 1302 tlie number of houses increased from 64,520 to 
65,971; and the population from 213,459 to 26M^o. 

Streets. ^ shown by tlie map the streets of Kyoto are Yeiy 
regular. Wlieu the city was first built the palace was considerably 
west of tlie present location. From its main gate commenced an 
avenue 230 feet wide, known as Shujaku Street^ which has shrunk 
into the narrow but busy Sembon St. of the present day. It extend- 
ed to tlie southern gate, thus dividing tlie city into two parts of 
which the western was called Choan, and also the Right or Western 
Capital ; the other section being Rakuyo, also known as the Left or 
Eastern GapitaL The western limit of the former was the preaent 
villages of Omuro and Yasui ; while tlie Eastern Capital extended 
to Ooko-machi St, or possibly to Teramachi Si The whole city 
measured 17,53U feet from north to south, and 15,()40 feet from 
east to west Nine wide streets running from east to west were 
numbered Idii-jo, Ni jo, San-jo (1st. ave., 2nd ave., 3rd ave.) dto. The 
^oadest of these measured 170 feet, while others were only about 
half as wide. Between them were streets 40 ft. wide. Tliere were 
thus 88 avenues and streets running east and west, while in each 
half of the city similar ones extended north and south. Thus the 
capital was divided into squares resembUng those of a diedker-board. 
Each square or ch^ was 400 feet square. There were 1216 of these. 
Four cKi made a ho; and four A5, a bo. Around the whole city was 
a low wall and a double moat. There were gates at the ends of the 
main avenues. Civil wars, fires, and other untoward events have 
aided in changing the ancient eystem, so tliat little of it now 
remains except Uie general regularity of tlie streets and the names 
which still remain to some of tliem. Whereas cities usually extend 
to the westward, Kyoto in ancient times reversed the process so tliat 
it now includes considerable territoiy on the east of tlie Kamo 
River, while tlie Right Capital of eleven hundred years ago lias been 
given over chiefly to fields and farming villages. 

Tlie method by whidi the locations of buildings are designated, 
though somewhat confusing to a stranger, is in reaUty veiy simple.

turned out te feast beneath the moon-beams." 

The Oojo Bridge was formerly a little further np the Btream, 
what is now Matsuwara St. being then called Oojo, Although tl)e 
site of the bridge was ohanged in Hideyoshi's time, it kept its old 
name and oaused those of the streets to be altered. The bridge was 
formerly built of stone, some blodks of whidh are in the ganlen of 
the Kyoto Bsliibition. The present structure was built in 1<I91. 

The bridge Is Ikrooos on aoooant oriteoanclatlans with Bonkel, the Japaness 
Bamson. who llvud in the latter lialf of the 18th osntury. He was a son of the 
priset Tauxu or Kuiuano In the pruvliics of Kit Wlien young 1m was culled Oiii- 
waka, or Young Demon. Wlien sent Ibr an oduaitloii to Mt. Utol, he became more 
noted fbr Ante of strsngth than Ibr dlligencs in studying the Buddhist buolcs. To 
the disgust ef the monies and his Ibilow-studeuts lie qwut much of his tlms in fbno- 
Ing and other mllltery exercises. It is said that liciikei was eight ftet high and 
as strong as a hundred ordinary persons. The some element in human iwture 
that causes men now to ajllect coins, postage-stamps, etc. led pennns then to gather 
a thousand qiedmens of any ortlde that they might choose as the special ol\Ject of 
tlieir endeavors. Nome collected a thousand bows; some, a thousand suits of 
armor, dtc Benkel, fishing to be in fashion, resolved that he would have a 
thousand swoidn capCuivd by his own strength and prowess. Night after night he 
lay In watt Ibr persons whom be nilglit attack. Uo suotvasAil was lie in his ventures 
^lat at lost he hud (Kourud nine huiidrod and ninety bladus. IXtUrous tliut the one 
neoesHury to cumplute ^e assigned number sliuuld be no unllmii-y swonl, he went 
to the temple of TsiiJIn to pray that eomothlng better than usual might be thrown 
In his way. 

It was a bright moonlight night in August when, after long waiting, he saw com- 
ing along the street a tinely drened young noble who was playing a Sute as he 
sauntered leisondy along. At his side hung a beauUAil sword. Benkel, brandish- 
ing a long glaive, sprang out and shouted, "Qiv.e me that sword." The young 
noble, afterwards well known at the brave Ycefiitsune, replied, ''It Is too precious 
Jbr me to be willing to part with It If however you are able to tolcc It, It shall be 
yours." There commenced a contest between ftrcnirih on one side and oglllty on 
the other. Whenever tlie giant tried to gnt^p the stripiiug or to strike him with 
the glaive, Yuahitsune would leap ilke a bird firom one side to Um) other. Jumping 
upon a wall tx^de the street, he soon made a sudden Might through the air kicking 
Benicei's eye In such a way as to blind him. The giant f^l to the ground howling 
fbr mercy. Yoshitsune, having gained posKWion of the glaive bent it and threw 
It back to his ssHUIant telling him to go In peace. 

Benkel, though thus defeated, yet longed to get poMcsslon of the sword. At lost 
he met Yosliitsune upon the G<Jo Bridge. The young noble pursued the same 
tactics as befbre. He leaped hither and thither, now before the giant, now behind 
him, now on the parapet of the bridge, and now dying like a bird befbre the 
dnmaj giant At last Yoshitsune with his steel-ribbed fkn struck Benkei's hands 
■nob a stluglug blow as to beuumb tbom, while the iriuut himself was stoggerliif

Goablrakawa. Asihoex-Rmpcrortlatoku bud abdlcniod against hia own will he 
diertibed a deaira to return to Uie throne. Pi^lwara Yoriuasaa younger brother 
of Tadamlchl ncretly raoonraged Sutoku, advtolng hlin to take decisive steps for 
the attalument of his desires. Minamolo Tonieyoshl, Minnmoto Ttoietoino, aiid 
Tklim TiMlamasa accordingly gathered their fbllowera in the Bhlrakawa Palace that 
they might support Butoko. The plans that Tunetouto and Tomcyoshl proposed to 
Yorinaga were nOected. Taroeyoshi with his five sons and a hundred horsemen 
guarded the south-west gate, Tametoroo with elgltteen others held the west gate, 
wlUle TadomasR with several hundred soldiers watched the remaining portals. 
The new Kmperor, CkMhlrakawa, had also collected troops, amohg whom were 
Mlnamoto Yoshitomo and Taira Kiyomori. These wne statknwd in the Taka- 
roatsu Palace. Yoshltomo's plan for surprising the enemy at night having been 
adopted, several ttioosand soldlcm were sent to attack the Bhlrakawa Ptalaoe. On 
hearing of this, Tametomo smiled saying, **That Is only what might have been ex* 
pccted.'* Ills manner was bold, for he was in reality one ofUie beat warrtors upon 
bis side. His right arm being sliorter than his lelt enabled him to draw a bow 
the more readily and this together with his great strength made Itlm the rooaC 
noted archer of tlic time. Yorinoita, Hearing tlmt Tknietomo might be vexed at the 
rejection of his plana, wlsb<d to conciliate him by giving him the highoffloeor 
JCwimio \ but Tsmetomo refused the honor wying, '*Why sliould 1 widi to be 
Xurando r My real name is Clilnxei Uachiro, and that is good enough tm me." 

Taira Kiyomori with his son Shlgi^mori advanced toward the west gate. Ito Go 
and Ito Roku. two under oflloera, were placed at the head of the attacking army. 
Seeing this, Tametomo. drawing his enormous bow, sent an arrow with such force 
that after piercing the body of Go it fastened itself to the sleeve of Roku*s armor. 
Terrified at this display of skill. Kiyomori, notwlthntandlng tlie entreaties of the 
more courageous Shiferoori. decided to change the point of attack to the south gate. 
Mlnamoto Yoshitomo, who was a brother of Tsmetomo, now ran to the west gate 
and calling to his brother f rom o distance said. "I come hll her by order of the 
Kmperor. How dare you be guilty of such wickedness as to draw your bow 
against your dder brother t" (According to Japanese ideas It would be o greater 
crime for o younger brother to attack the elder than if the poslUona were reversed.) 
Tunftomo cried out in reply, "We are here by the command of the eX'Kmperor. 
Your flither Is on our side. Which is worse, to draw one's bow against his elder 
brother or to draw sword against one's flithcr^" YoHhitomo. sllem-cd by this 
retort, stopped his horse near the gate called H&geuln. Tametomo drew forth an 
arrow (hmi his quiver but laid It down siiylug, "lie is nt any rate my elder broUior 
and I must try to save him." Me therefore took anotlter arrow liuvlng o lieod so 
constructed as to make o loud humming noise while paiailng through the air. This 
he shot In such a way that, passing harmlessly through a piirtofYashitooio*s 
armw. It piercrd the hinge of the gate ; his otject being to ftighten his brother 
away txaai the place where he was standing. Yoshitomo. witli an assumed air of 
unconcern, said. "You have not yet become o skiiinil markfoiian." Tb this Tame- 
tomo replied, " It wss my Intention not to do you any liaim. Tb prove however 
hat I am not without skill. I will shoot the next arrow ttirough any part of your 
body that you may choose." Fitting another arrow to the string he dlacliarged 
it at lightning speed ; but one of the under offlocrs. rusliliig before YoshiUmio. ny 
celvod thealiafl In bis own liody. 

Many soldlera were sluin upon botli sides. At last Yodiltomo suoce cdod in set- 
ting Are to the piilace wblch was rami wmppfd in flames. Hutoku while utiuiupt- 
ing to escape tu None wiui raitturcd and oxllod tu tlio province of tfonuki. Mai4 of 
tlie warriors who fought upon bis side wore put to death, but Tauiutumu monagod 
to escape. Acoordmg to one version of tiie story he (led to Loo Clioo where bis 
son became the flrKt historical ruler of that group of islands. 

The War^HkiiU In the distribution of rewards to th« offloen who gained the 
Jdory in the Hogen War, Tatra Kiyomori was specially fnvored while 
Mlnamoto Yoshitomo.thoogh equally deserving, received but slight acknowl- 
edgment. This led the way to the dlaoord between the Taira and Minamolo

He caused cne boy wlien two yean old to be made Empennr, caily to be removed at

Buddlilst monk ; but he continued lils rosidetioe at Itokubara wlience lie nuuiaged 
analrs of state in the same way aa before. 

At last the boy whom he had bonlslied to Ixu, having attained manhood, rose to 
avenge the wrongs of his family. The Talra were utterly defeoted and the 
politlcar power came Into the hands of the Minamolo clan. Yorttonio, however. 
Instead of residing in Kyoto, as had been the case with others admlnii^terlng the 
government, built for himself a new ca)>ital in Kamokuro where, under tlie title 
of 8ei-^ Tai SlMgun (Barbarian-subjugating groat General j, he assumed a position 
not unlike tliat of a second emperor. This was the origin of ihnt peculiar dual 
system of guvenimeiit which long perplexed foreigners and which led to the tint 
treaties wUIj foreign nations being mode nul by tiie real Kmpuror but by out 
who had no autliority for forn'ifng such aillanres. 

After Yoritomo fli^d bis capital in Koinakiira, he was ropreciouted 
in Kyoto by an oifioar who was called the Shuyo or Protector of Kyoto. 
After Yoritomo'a deatli tlie power of liio sucoessors in office was 
re-deleeated to regents who for the first one hundred and fifty years 
were from the Hojo tamily. Kyoto was then under the administra- 
tion of two Ihndai; one residing in Nortli and the other in South 
Bokulisra. Tliey also served as guardians of tlie Imperial Palace. 
Tlie people of the city now enjoyed a long season of tranquihty. 

In the beginning of the lltii century when Ashikaga Takauji do- 
stroyed the two Bokuliaras, and when the loyal Kusunoki liasashige 
fought at tlie temple Toji, Kyoto again became a scene of blooil-shod 
and oonllagration. Many of the mobi costly buildings wore bnnuxL 
The most terrible scenes were enacted. It is said tliat tlie ground 
about Ky5to became like the Uood-pits of an execution ground. 


£ktmmoH ifoMukige, The Kusunoki family waa a branch of the Tncliibana 
which was founded by a groat-gxandmn of tlie Emperor Uidatsu. In August, 
1331, when the F.mperor Godalgo carrying the royal insignia— the Mirror, the 
Sword, and the Jewel— fed from bi« enemies to Mt Kawgl in tite province of 
Yamato, the whole country « as in a state of confusion and anarchy. IIo jo TKka- 
tokl waa on the point of sending a large force to take poftseiAion of the IVilace in 
Kyoto. The Lmperor commanded a prie^it named Kwniv'on to go about the 
country seeking for trustworthy men who w ould come to his aid. The messenger 
reported that in tlie province of Kawachi the Kusunoki family was unshaken in 
Its loyalty. A summons w as tlieref ore sent to MaaaKhitre wlio w as its head. Moved 
witli sorrow at the misernblo condition of the Kmperor, bo replied to the messen- 
ger, "lliou'fh the HoJo warrlora may be strong and conrnKoons, tliey are lacking 
In military skill. lam ready to sacrifice myself for my Kmperor. Tell him 
that so long as life remains in the fragile body of Kusunoki Mawahige, no liarm 
shall come to His Majesty."

powerful noUe in the province of Owari, having already sulidaed tne 
neigliboring feudal lords, at last took possession of Kyoto wliere lie 
bnilt the castle of Nijo. He governed tlie city tlirongh an officer 
called Shokkidai, Then, afrer long years of war, the people of 
Kyoto once more enjoyed a period of peace whidi, however, was not of 
long duration. Mobunaga was slain by his own vassal, Akedii, who in 
tarn was killed by Toyotomi Hid^oslii, auotlier of Nobuuaga's 
retainers who now succeeded to his power. 

Hideyoshi was one of the most remaricable men that Japan has 
ever produced. He did mnoli to develop tlie resources of the country 
and strengthen tlie power of the Emperor. He greatly improved the 
laws of the oonntiy. The division of the land which he made in 
reyisix^ the metliod of taxation has remained until tlie present day. 
The invasion of Gorea and the persecution of tlie Roman Gatholio 
CAuristians were among other events tliat made his administiation 
memorable. He was also noted for his extensive building operations. 
Maziy of the great castles like that of Osaka were built at this time. 
Kyoto was greatly improved by the works he inaugurated. Among 
other buildings lie erected the Juxaku ^lace which, with its garden, 
is said to have been of indescribable magnificence. It extended from 
Qmiya Street on the east to Sembon Street on the west^ while in the 
other direction it filled the space between Ichijo and Nijo. As the 
lines showing the boundaries of tlie city had become entirely obUter. 
ated, Hideyoshi caused them to be again maiked by embankments 
planted with bamboos. Parts of tliis construction may still be seen 
north and west of the city. 

Since tliat time the city has often fallen prey to dostnictive eon- 
flagrations, tlie Palace liaving been destroyed by fire no loss tliau six 
times. Notwithstanding many minor changes Uie general features 
of tlie city ha>'e remained the same. Under lyeyasn, Hideyoshi's 
■uocessor, tlie Nijo Castle was rebuilt. During the Tokugawa dynasty, 
founded by ly^yasu, the city sliared for three hundred years in the 
peace that prevailed tliroughout tlia countiy. 

The signal for the cessation in Kyoto of this time of tranquility 
was given at two o'clock on the morning of Sept 30, 1863, when the 
people living in the vicinity of the Palace were startled by the firing 
of a cannon near one of the gates. When in the morning it was 
found that the nine gates about the outer wall of the Palace had been 
dosed so that no penon was allowed to pass through what had before 
been common thoroughfares, all sorts of rumors spread among the 
people. The excitement was increased as tliey saw men huiiying 
about on horseback, or dragging field-piecee along the roads, or

For months faeforo Kyoto liml 1«eii a neetio of tin wonted aotiTity. 
The qitpctione arieing ont of opening the oonntry to foreign 
lal«wmr«e and from fp^nring oppoeition to the Shogima had 
led many of tlie fendal lonle io oome up to Kyota Tlie etreets liad 
Isen cr o wde d fcgr their followere. Men*s minds were on the aleii| 
wondsring what was aboni io liappen. It was snspested that tlie 
Choshiii elan had eoneeiTed a plot for taking posJiession of the 
person of the Emperor, thns holding tlie goTemment and oansing 
any who o ppii ee d tliem to be eonsideied aa rebels. Tlie firing of the 
cannon aoled aa a signal to snmmon the men belonging to Uie Aim 
dan toiler with oUieni who sided witli tliom agaiaH Choehin. 
For a wlitle the ontlireak of lioetilies between tlie two paities seemed 
imminent ; bnt finally tlie Choshin leadsts obeyed the orders tliat 
wsie issued for witlidniwal from tlie city, and the conflict was posi- 
prmed until tlie 3 Hh of Aui;t]tt in the neit year. On tliat day three

Tlie Canal is ororaed fay seveml bridges. That before ilie main 
gate is called Sliomen-bashi; the oneto the east, Hiromiohi-baelii ; and 
the middle one on the west side, Nijo-bashi. On crossing 
Sliomen-faashi, tliere is leaolied an extensive plot of ground 
tliat is tastefully adorned with a fountain and a large number 
of trees. Part of tlie ground along the banks of tlie canal 
is ooonpied with shops for tlie sale of difSerent kinds of goods. 

Tlie main eutianco is a Urgo axdi-way between two towers. The 
Industrial Building of whidi this foims a part is a series of long 
corridors fonning a hollow square, and enclosing a spacious court 
which is beautifully laid out after the style of Japanese laud- 
scape gaideuing. The rectangle fonned fay the building is 660 ft. 
from east to west, and 46d ft from north to soutli. Witliin tlie 
building are exhibited specimens of Japanese industrial ^irodnuts. 

Mortli of tliis building, and connected with it ly a central ardi- 
way opposite the main entrance and also fay two other passages, is a 
long range of buildings, Tliat which lies west of the arcli-vray is the 
Agricultural and Forastiy Building; while the one on the ea&t is tlie 
Madiincry Building, where engines, mAcliinoiy, and other inedianical

having a fountain in tlie center and two pavilions for musical per- 
formanoes. The large building on tlie noiUi of the fountain is the 
Fine Ajts Building. Tlie smaller building south-east of this is the 
Ceremonial Hall where are to be held various exercises connected 
with tlie Exhibition.

Tliough the removal of ilie capital to Kyoto ooonrred in 794, the 
fonnal oocnpation of the Palace did not occur until 796. According 
to the Japanese method of reckoning, eleven hundred yean from tliat 
time would be 1895, and accordingly this date has been ohoeen for 
the commemoration of an event so wortliy of being celebrated by all 
loyal Japanese, but especially by tlie people of Kyoto who remember 
what their city owes to the far-sighted Emperor by whom it was 

Tlie Kmperor Kwammn, witli his rare aUlity and genius for vast 
undertakings, inaugurated a new epodi in the histoxy of Ja]ian. Nnt- 
witliKlAiiding the energy and sagacity of hispredeoeBsorH, Uio countiy 
liad been in an uuKcttled condition. Tlie seat of govermnent hatl 
been so often dianged tliat institutions had been unable to take 
deep root and all the affairs of government were conducted on a com- • 
paiatively small scale. \Vlien however, the Emperor Kwammu 
pennanently established tlie capital in Kyoto, the breadth ot his 
plans wei-e shown by tlie magnifloeut palaces and other public build- 
ings that he erected. It is said tliat he removed from Naia because 
it was too narrow for what he had in mind. He also sent out 
his general, Tamura, to subjugato the Ainos in tlie eastern 
provinces, and thus permanently settled tlie boundaiies of tlie 
countiy. During his reign various institutions were firmly establish- 
ed, and a new era of peace and piosperity commenced. Tlius it may 
properly be said that the great work begun by tlie Emperor Jimmu 
was completed by tlie Emperor Kwammu. 

It is but natural that the people of Kyoto and the nation at loi-ge 
sliould desire to commeniomte the illustrious deeds of such a 
sovereign, and the founding of a city that for mora tliana thousand 
years was the capital of a continuous line of Emperors, a fact unique 
in Uie history of the world. Notliiug can be more appropriate than 
to recount tlie wonderful progress aud adiievements of Japan during 
this long period and to rejoice as a nation over the prosperity of the 
Imperial Household and of tlie whole countiy. Hence it was that 
tlie people of Kyoto wiili one voice proposed the observance of tliis

Tho Kinen-den and Heian Jingf 

As a pennAnent monument of the Commemoratiou of the found- 
ing of Kyoto iliere Iiave been eiieoted tlie bnildines called Kinen-den, 
wliere tlie spirit of the Emperor Kwammn is to be enshrined nnder 
the name of Heian Jingo. The grounds in whidi iliey are erected 
are north of the Ezliibition Grounds and liave an area of 12} acres. 
The buildings include a Memorial Hall called Daigoku-den, eastern 
and western corridorB, two towers called Shoriu-ro and Biakko-ro, 
and a large gate called Oten-mon. With their red {ullai-s and green 
tiles they form a conspionous group that is in strflung contrast to 
the plain structures used for the Ezliibition. 

A brosd road running eastward from the north-western bridge of 
the Exhibition grounds separates them from those of the Memorial 
Buildings. Grossing tliis road from tlie Ezliibition, tlie first stmo- 
ture noticed is Uie imposing two-storied gate called 5ten-mon. 
Tliis gate can be seen while looking through tlie noi-tliem aroliway 
of ilie Industrial Building. It faces tlie south, is 60 fi long, 24 fi 
broad, and 64 ft. liigli. From both sides extend low eartli parapets 
planted witli small pine-trees. 

Passing tlirough a wide open space, the visitor readies Uie Biubi- 
dan, a platform 403 ft by 150 ft, and raised 2.4 ft from tlie 
surrounding ground. It can be ascended by four flights of stone 
steps, Uie two middle ones being eadi 57.4 ft. long, while tliose at tlie 
ends are eadi 44.8 ft long. Tlie edge of the platfoi-m between ilio 
steps is adorned with a rod lacquer railing having metal onuunoiits; 
similar railings being on ilie sides of the steps. 

The Memorial Hall, or Daigoku-den, is the central building that 
faces the south. It is 110 ft long, 40 ft deep, and 54 ft higli and 
stands on a platform 5 ft high which is ascended by Uiree flights of 
stone steps. The roof is supported by four rows of pillars. The 
front is entirely open, while the other sides are plastered white, with 
three doors on the nortli side, and one eadi on the east and west. 
Through tlie central door on the nortli there can be seen tlie 
Emperor Kwammu's slirine wliidi is in the rear. According to the 
custom of eleven centuries ago, the floor is paved with tiles. The 
two trees in front of Uie building and on the Biubi-dan are named, 
like tlie corresponding ones before the Sliishinden of tlie Imperial 
Palace, Sakon-no-ssknra, and Ukon-no-tadiibana. 

Attadied to tlie Memorial Hall are two corridors whidi extend to 
the east and west, and tlien turn southward, terminating in two 
towers, of which the eastern is called Shoriu-ro, and the western

North of the Memorial Hall is a shrine, 21.6 fi hy 26 ft-, standing 
on a platform 3 ft high. Here is to be enshrined tlie spirit of the 
Emperor Kwammn. The dedication will occur on the same day 
with Uie anniversaiy service, and thenceforward the shrine will be 
ranlced as one of the highest grade of Shinto temples. This too is 
the result of the earnest petition of the Kyoto people and their 
fnends, whose gratitude to tlie great Emperor has thus found 

The Anniversary Exercises. 

The Slirine and the Memoral Hall will be beautifully decorated on 
Anniversaiy Day; and the dedicatory services consisting of prayers, 
ofibrings, reading of congratulatory messages, music, dancing, and 
worship by representative men, will be held in the early. morning. 
The presence of the reigning Emperor will be petitioned for; and 
tlie services at the Memorial Hall will be held in the presence of 
princes, minibters, members of the Impeiiol Diet, members of the 
Association that lias aided the project; as well as of the ministers 
and consuls of foreign countries who will be invited to attend. 
Similar services, to whidi other guests will be invited, will be held 
on the two following days 

The decoration of the Memorial Hall on this occasion will be like 
that of the Enxyaku period. The inner walls will be decorated with 
rich silk curtains called moko and noMho; tlie former on the npper, 
and the latter on the lower walls. On lacquered posts in front of 
the Hall will be hung four sacred banners called Bhoriu, Biakko, 
Shnjaku, and Oembu. On a platform in front of the Hall will bo 
performed dances in the Enx^u style, also a remarkable kind of 
dance called Azuma-aaobi In different places there will bo horse- 
races, ballJucking, no dancing, Aino dancing, wrestling, and other

subsequent periods, so as to fumisli means for comparing tliese with 
modern artioles contained in tlie Fom-tli National Eihibltion. Tliis 
is the first time that such a historical ezliiUtion lias been held in 
Japan, and it will give a gooil opportunity for studying Uie growth 
and deyolopment of art industries during the past eleven centuries. 
The numerous Sliinto and Buddliist temples of Kyoto, as well as tlie

Uimigbi thfti vliilt Ui« nmovAl of Ui« eipHal from Kyoto hid been 
tiiiffi>armlle to the interenle of the city, a eenel that would fnrniiih 
vmter for farigMioa, neTigation, end mennfeotoree might aid in ree- 
Wing properilj. In 18^1, when the fortonee of the city were at a 
litw elii, Mr. Kitagidu wan a{ipotnted Ooremor of KySto Fii. It 
pieced him to think that a dty which for ten centnriee had been the 
mf»t tmprffiant in the empire had rank lo low. Desirone of doing 
Mtnethtng to bring it beck to its former poeition, he determined that 
a flanal ought to be dng from lidKe Biwa to the eastern part of the 
eity. To eany ont raeh a plan it wae neoecMiy to eeonre the peiw 
miinioD of the central government and the co-operation of the 
people, flit lebora in tiieM directions being crowned with racce«, 
arii\e npetmiifms were begun in AogiHi, 1895- The work wae com- 
pleted in Mardi, 1800. 

Tlie (!anal begins at Miogasaki, Otsu, in the province of 5mi, and 
enlMn the first tnnnel near the famoni temple of Ifiideia Running 
along the sides of tlie hills of Yamasliina and passing through two 
mnv^ tnnnelK, it readies the dam at Keage. Here the water divider 
Tlir main Isanch, passing tlie ** Incline ** near tlie Buddhist temple 
Nsnien^, continues westward and unites witli tlie new Kamo River 
Cansl wliidi is really an ettemion of tlie one we are describing. 
Tlio roller bratirli goes nortliward tlirongh the fonrth tunnel to the 
TilUge of SliinUuiwa, where it turns to tlie west and, after oroeeing 
theTskano and Karoo Rivers, continues to Ogawa^uihira where it 
ynntk the Himkawa. 

Tlie Mvoelled "Incline** is a contriirance for obviating a diflerenee 
in lev^l too great to bo ea«ily managed by locks. It is a railway built 
npnn an inclined pbine having a slope of 1-16 and a length of abont 
l9fin feet. Tlie bmi to l« oonTeyni is received in a wheeled ondle 
whirli is attadied to a wire ro|« worki<d by electricity tluU is generated

(Tsdle goes up while anotlier is descending. Two strong iron pipes 
vtth s diameter of three feet are placed pide by mde on tlit ilope. 
Having a capacity of 9M eitbie feet a second with a fall of 19() feet. 
It gives an immense pressure vrhidi in ntiliasd for ilie generalioo of

ftnd weaving; for pumping the water nsed in baih-honses; and in the 
manufacture of needles, oil, lemonade, ioe, and tadon (balls made of 
powdered oliarooal). 200 more horse-power will he required when 
the new elootrio railway begins its operations. It is expected that 
within a \eiy few yean Uie whole 2000 horse-power available from 
tliis source will all be utihzed in one way or another, thus bringing 
to the city an income of 117,000 yen. The water power of the canal 
is also used by mills at different points along its course.

mountain and seeing something of tlie temples, tlie descent may be 
made to Sakamoto on tlie shores of Lake Biwa. Here jiurikishas 
can be hired to rHsn, stopping a few moments to see the big tree at 
Kaiaialwi. In Otsu the temple of Miideia may be visited. If not

Sldnto priests do not wear any peonliar dress except when engaged

The constmction of Sliinto temples is much simpler tlian that of 
Buddhist buildings. In their purest form they are made of unpaini- 
ed wood and are roofed with the bark of the huwH (Ohamaeoyparis 
obtnsa). The architecture is tliat of tlie primitive Japanese 
hut in which tlie rafters projected in the sliape of tlie loiter X 
wliile the two timbers wliich formed tlie ridge were bound togctlior 
by sliort transverse logs which were the prototypes of the cigar- 
sluLped ones whidi now suniiouut the roof. In a large temple are 
usually found the following buildings: — 

Tlie Mam BuUding in which tlie principal object of worship is 
enshrined. In the purest form no object of worship is to be seen, 
it being enclosed in an inner sanctuary before wliidi liangs tlie 
gohei made of strips of white paper cut in a peculiar way and said to 
represent the strips of dotli that in ancient times were offered at 
tlie shrine. In many temples, however, a mirror is now eeen and

It WA8 at least a tlionsand yoarsaftor tlio Ago of Bnkgainnni, or Slia- 
ka, as he is called in Japan, tliat BiuldUibiii tirHi outened tluH oountry. 
It came from Gorea which had before rocoivcd it from Chi ua. lu 
6ii2 A. D. the king of Kndara, one of tho tlut)e ancient divisions of 
Ciirea, is said to liave presented to the Emperor Kimmei an image of 
Bnddlia and some sacrod books. For a lung time the minds of 
imlnential men were greatly divided in the views taken of tlie new 

The Emperor, who was somewliat favorable to its aooeptanoe, 
gave the presents he had received into the care of Soga-no-Iname, 
one of the Councilors of State, who became a believer and is said to 
liave erected in 5*^ the first Japanese pagoda. The neit year a 
pestilence tliat lagod tlironghoiit the oountry was aMcribod by 
Mononobe-no-Okoshi, anotlier Oouncilor, to tlie anger of tlie gods 
at the reception of the foiieign religion. At liis instigation the 
temple huilt by Soga was binned, and the Bivldhibt images were cast 
into rivers. Otlier images and books weie brought by the monks 
and nuns who came in constantly increasing numbers from Gorea. 
Bliotoku Taislii, who was Regent in the time of the Empress Suiko 
(503-621), eagerly espoused the cause of Buddhism and promulgated 
its docti'ines so successfully tliat at the time of his deatli tliere 
were abready 46 temples, 8l6 monies, and 569 nuns. He was a 
sagacious and clever man who also encouraged tlie aiis and sciences. 
Vxom this time BuddhiHiu buuanie thoroughly ustablishud as tlio 
cliief reUgion of the land and was adopted by successive Emperors. 
In 625 Eikwan, coming to Japan from Koma, another division of 
ancient Gorea, became tlie founder of the Jojitsu and Sanron seats. 
In 653 D5sho went to China whence he brought back the doctrines 
of Uie Hosso sect. This priest also built ferry-boats, bridges, and 
canals. The long bridge spanning the river at Uji is said to liave 
been tlie first built by him. Other iiriests who wont to China also 
on their return aided in spreading the do'jti'iues of the Hosso and 
Kuslia sects. In 736 a Chinese priest named Dosen iutrodnoed the 
Kegon sect Two years later a proclamation was issued ordering 
every province to erect two temples, one for the monks and the 
other for the nuns. In 754 another Chinese priest named Ganjin 
established the Bitsu sect. The Kusha, Jojitsu, lUteu, Hosso, 
Sanron, and Kegon sects were all estaUislied at Nam and lience 
were called the six sect of Nanto or the Southern Capital In 804

Tlie gates liave often been the soeuas of exciting events. In tlie 
last part of the Historical Sketch of Kyoto mention was made of 
tlie attack which the men of Clioshu made upon several of them. 

Imperial Palace. 

Up to the time of the Emperor Kwammn the Imperial Besidenoe 
was dianged witli each sovereign. Witli seven exceptions, how- 
ever, the Palaces irere in the province of Yamato. Ttie seven otlier 
places tlms honored were Sliiga, Gtsn, and Hora, in tlie province of 
of ^hni ; Naniwa and Nagara in Settsn ; Tajilii in Kawaohi ; and 
Sagara in Tamashiro. As elsewhere narrated, tlie Emperor Kwammn, 
after a short residence in Nagaoka, removed to Kyoto where he 
built liis Palace in what is tlie nortli-west part of the present city. 
Tlie palace was called Dairi and was snxxounded by many other 
public buildings which together formed a rectangle called Dainlairi 
or the Oroat Dairi. Tlio oironmferonco (»f the latter was )0,HUU 
feet There were tliree gates on each side. Among other noted 
buildings were tlie Daigokuden, of wliich a reproduction lias been 
erected just north of tlie buildings of the National Exliibition, 
Horakuden, and the Butokuden. 

The Dairi was 720 feet from east to west, and 1,000 feet from 
north to south. It contained 17 main buildings besides several 
subordinate ones. All of these were destroyed ly fire in 1177. Tlixee 
years later the arrogant Kiyomori caused tlie court to be removed to 
Frknwara, the present Hyogo; wliere however, it remained less 
tlian a year. Since tliat time the Palaces luive often been ruined by 
successive conflagrations, which usually were connected witli tlie 
civil contests that raged within the city. 

The present site was chosen after the Ojin period (14G7 — 1460), 
the first Palace built being very small. In 1593 a much larger one 
was elected by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Tliis and seveml of its succes- 
sors were likewise burned. During the 17th and iStli centuries the 
Palace is said to have been destroyed five times by fire. The 
present buildings were built by lyeyoshi. 

Tlie Palace grounds, containing an area of about 20 acres, are 
surrounded by a high wall' of earth and plaster covered with a 
tile roof. This wall is marked with five horizontal white 
stripes whose origin is unceitain. According to some tliey at first 
showed tlie heights reached by the Kamo Biver in some of its 
inundations; while otliers say tluit the Unes represent five st^w

Kenahnn Mon ; on the noiih the Saknhei Mon which was tlie nutin 
entrance to the Empress's Palace; while on the west tliere are 
three tlie Senslm Mon or Knge Mon, while the two otliers are 
called Mi Daidokoro Mon or the Gates of tlie Augubt Kitchen. 
The nortliem of tlie Kitchen Gates is also called Kiyono Mon and 
was formerly the ordinaxy entrance to tlie Emporess's Palace. 

Visitors enter from the middle of the three west gates. At the 
guard house tliey will be furnished with a guide who conducts 
them first to tlie Okummayoee where they must remove their slioes 
or put oyer them large slippers provided for tliat purpose. They 
are then taken to tlie consisting of tlie Sakura-no-ma 
(GlierryRoom), Tsmn-no-ma (Crane Room), and Toi'a-no4na(Tigar 
Room), In the latter tliey register their names. Passing tlirougli 
the corrider called Wata^o, a room or rather verandah called 
Sliimo-no-to (Lower Door) is reached. This was the place of 
waiting for couit nobles above the 4th grade. Here are tliree low 
dining tables used when the nobles were feasted by the Einporor. 
Tliere are 2 windows on the northern wall; the one at left is 
Kushigata-no-mado (Comlvsliaped Window) while the other is 
called Kojitomi under whidi is the diair in which the ESmperor 
sat at the time of the feast. On a screen outside the upper entianoe

of the ceremonies to be performed. 

The Seirydden (Pure and Cool Hall) receives its name from a 
brook wliich runs beneath the Ktei>s. lu oldou times Soixyodoii 
was the ordinary dwelling-place of the Emperor; but afterwaid it 
came to be used only on festivals or still later for levees. All articles 
connected with the room had their own special names, while their 
use according to custom was lianded down from early days. The 
hall whidi faces to the east is 60 feet in front and 30 feet in deptlu 
The largest room called Omoya lias no ceiling but is open to the 
roof, a style known as hesho-yane. The Imperial Throne covered 
with beautiful white, red, aiid Uack curtains is called Mi-cho-dai; 
while the seat before it is styled Hiru-no-gyoza, or day-seat In the 
south east corner a part of the doors is made of cement. On this 
fresli earth was sti*ewed every morning so that the Emperor in wor- 
sliiping his ancebtors could, witliout descending to the ground, yet 
conform to the custom of standing on tlie earth. At the back is the 
Shiki-no-byobu or Screen of four seasons, so named from the paint-

the buildings hAve now been removed, and those that remain are of 
little interest. 

The garden^ wliioh preserves something of its old appeamnoe, is 
worth visiting. It extends 1 M from east to west, and 3 d^ from 
north to south. There is a large pond witli a row of artifioial hills 
that are oovered with large trees. Bridges lead to two islands called 
Toshijima and Horaijima. From a marble lantern on one of the 
islands there is a fine view. A small bridge passes on to the artifi- 
oial hills where is another ezoellent view. Passing towards the 
north a large stone bridge is reached. In this part of the garden are 
many large rocks and aged treesi Ooing still farther and passing to 
the nortli-west above a small waterfall, one readies tlie elevations 
known as Maple Hills and Sago-palm Hill, in whose vicinity 
are many maple and olierry ^es; while to the noiili is a rioe- 
field, thoi was placed liere so tliat tliq Emperors and Kinprosfios, by 
seeing the labor of tliose who ouliivatod it, might approuiato the 
hard lot of tlie common people. Near the field is a monument to 
tlie famous poet. Kino Tsurayuki, having at its base a small 
fountain whose water runs into tlie pond. At the south end of 
the pond is tea-house called Saikwa-tei from wliich there is a view 
of tiie whole garden, with the waterfall and bridges. A Uttle 
distance to tlie nortli above the pond is a place where tlie ground is 
oovered with small round stones and planted witli cherry trees. To 
tlie left of tliis is the site of tlie former Tsuue-goton, or Ordinary 
Palace, near the place \sy which the visitor entered.

Sbokokuji. ^^b Bnddliist temple is also called Mamien-zan. 
It isnortli of Imadegawa S^. and east of Kaiaannuu-n St. It is oiie uf the 
five prinoipal monasteries of the Zeu sect in Kyoto, and is at Uie 
head of over fifty lirancli temples. It is situated on the site of 
Ismnoji, a famous temple of the Tendai sect, which was fonnded by 
I>enkyo Daislii. In I.HB2 tlie Shognu Ashiluiga Ydsliimitsii erected 
a temple in which he wished to make Slmuya-no-Myoin abbot 
Myoiu, feeling himself imf.t for such a position, afked his master 
^uso Koknshi to take it while lie himself took the second place. 
At that time tlie grounds contained over 50 acres, while the bnildingB 
were lai^ge and magnificent. Ten yoMn later it was destroyed by fire, 
but soon rebuilt. As narrated in the historical sketch of Kyoto, 
this temple was tlie headquarters of one army during ilie Ojin War 
of the IfiUi century. In that and snlwequent commotions it was 
rodiioed to niiiis ; so tliat, with the excoiititm of tlio main toniplo, 

all the buildings now standing are of Inter date than I7B0. The 
pesent grounds have an area of 21 acres, and on three sides are sliut 
in Ijy liamboo groves. 

Tlie principal buildings are tlie Hondo, oi* Main Hall, H4ft. by 
78ft; Hojo, the residence of the abbot, 61ft. by &lft.; Ksisando, 
or Founder's Hall, 48ft. by SGft.; and a memorial tower where are 
preserved tlie hair and teeth of the Emperor Gomizunoo (1612-1029). 
The 15 sulmrdinate buildings are for the most part used as residences 
for the priests. 

Hie chief object of worship in tlie Main Hall is the image of 
Sliaka, whidi is placed between tliose of Kayo and Anan. Tlie image 
of Damma is on a separate platform. Tlie Founder's Hall was built 
in 18U7 from the materials of an older building presented by the 
wife of tlie £lmperor Momozono. It contains an image of Muso 
Kokuslii. Before the Main Hall is a pine grove including the pond 
called Kudoku-ilce wliich is crossed by a stone bridge called Tenkai- 

In the eastern part of the monasteiy are a number of monuments 
erected in honor of tlie Satsuma soldiers who died in the civil war at 
tlie time of tlie Bestoration. Tlie inscription on tlie prinoipal 
monument was composed by Kaieda Moiitoki and written by 
Matsumoto Tskeo The Kyoto ycMhi of the Satsuma clan was 
just soutli of Sliokokuji, where are now the principal buildings 
of the Doshisha Schools. East of tlie monuments is a place called 
To-no4]an or Pagoda Platform wliere in 14UU tlie Emperor Gokoma- 
tsu built a seven storied pagoda 36Uft. high. It was destroyed in the 
5jin war.

An interesting oexemony called miiarashi is perfonned in the latter 
part of the SDnuner. It confiisis in washing tlie hands in the 
dear, cold water iliat issues from tlie temple grounds. Sometimes 
people immerse the whole body. 'Jliis ceremony, like similar rites 
performed in other lands, symbolizes purification from dn. 

To the left of the portal is tlie Baui-no-kL Formerly two 
branches issuing from adjacent trees were so perfectly combined as 
to seem like one. Hence the place was much frequented by women 
who prayed that between iliem and their husbands tliere might be 
the perfect harmony which was symbolized by the union of these 
trees. Unfortunately one of the brandies witliered so tliat the bond 
is now broken. As tlie trees still live, one can not but be reminded 
now of tlie divorces which so often sever the marriage bond. A 
small shrine at the west end and inside of the corridor eitending 
from tlio gateway is called Jliktuji sluriiie. Tlie lUawji is a kind of 
holly, and it is believed tliat other kinds of trees, if planted here, 

will gradually develop spines tliat resemble those of the hUroffL 
Several shrubs undergoing the process of transformation are shown. 

The Mikage and tlie Kamo Festivals are tlie most important of 
those observed at this temple. The former occurs on the 12th of 
MAy when tlie sacred dirine makes a journey to the Mikage Temple 
at the western base of Mt. Hiei. Usually it returns on the same 
day. Tlie Kamo Festival occurs on tlie 15tli of May. It is also 
called ilie Aoi Festival, as those taking part in it nx6 decorated wiUi 
the loaves of the uui, a s^iooiuH of holly liouk. A prooossiou sfciuiiiig 
from tlie Imperial l*alace includes a high official who represouts 
the Elmperor, and the old and clumsy bullock-car in which the 
Emperors formerly rode; while many of the people are dressed in 
antique costumes sudi as can seldom be seen at other times. 
Festivals formerly held in April and November liave now been dis- 

Among vaiious legends connected with tliis temple the following 
is a cliaracteristic Shinto tale. Tamayori-hime, the goildoss wor- 
shiped at this temple, was one day playing on tlie brink of tlie Semi- 
no-ogawa when she saw floating towards her an arrow painted red 
and vringed with the feather of a duck (hotmo). She took it home 
with her placing it beside her couch. Soon after she gave birth to 
her son; and her parents, disbelieving her assertions of innocence, 
charged her with guilty conduct When the child was a few years

an image of Kwannon. Ihe pond in front, called Kyoko-ike, is 
crossed Iry four bridges. The miniataie waterfall on the south-east 
is called Sengetsu-sen, or Moon-washing Fountain; and similar 
poetical names are given to tlie bridges, mounds, trees, Su. Hie

Hig^ashi-yamai <^ Eastern Mountains, is the name given to 
the range of liills to the east of the city. Old poems speak of their 
86 peaks, though it is not certain just what ones were seleoted for 
enumeration. On the lower slopes of tliese mountains are situated 
many of the most noted places oi Kyoto. Tlie names of the 
most important, commencing at the noiih, are as follows : — (Ha- 
kaknji, Niakoji, Eikwaiido, Nauzenji, Biwa Oaiial, Gliiou-in, Yasaka 
Temple, Marnyama Park, Higashi Otiui, Kodaijt, Kiyoinizu, Nislii

Shishigatani ^b tlie name applied to the slope of a hill } mile 
north of Niakoji. At the foot is foaud a temple calleil Reikanji 
where is euslu-ined a stone image of Fiido. Tlie temple is some- 
times called tliQ Reikanji Palace besanse it was foumled by the 
motlier of Prince Oionen. A short distauue up the hill ai« two 
more temples called Jnren-zan Aiu-oknji, ami Zenkt-zan Mammujl. 
Tlie latter contains relics of the priest Ilonoiu 

DaDg^Og^atani, or the Vale of Sem^t Consultation, was the 
villa in the I2th centuiy of Shunkwan, a priest of the temple Hos- 
shoji. The Taira family, with Kiyomori at its head, being then at 
the height, of its power, this priest held several meetings here with 
some of his intimate friends to plan for the overthrow of the 
tyrant. Tlie plot liaving been made known by some traitor, Sliun- 
kwan and his confederates were banished to an island off the coast 
of Satsuma. There is now nothing but a le^'el piece of ground to 
indicate the site of tlie villa.

Looking Backward," beoause its head is turned towards tlie left 
Tliis peculiar position is accounted for by the legend tliat Eikwan, 
while engaged one day in his devotions, heard some one oalling his 
name ; and on looking up saw that the statue luid turue:! its fa^e 
towaaid him. Eikwan's image is now placed upon the altar in such 
a position that the eyes of Amida still seem to be fixed upon him. 

Under Shohen, the loUi abbot, tlie temple was handed over to 
Genkii, the founder of the Jodo sest. In 1572 it was made by 
order of tlie Emperor Okimashi a college for the education of priests. 
Dui'iug the Ojiu war of the I5th ceutuiy, all the buildings were 
burned. Tliey wei^e rebuilt in 1497 by the Blmperor Gotsudliimikado,

Tlie main temple, CI ft. by 42 ft., containing an image of Amida, 
was formerly in OHoka, whence it was brought by Toyotomi Hido- 
yoslii. Sosiiido, which was rabuilt in 1497, contains tlie statues of 
Zendo Daishi, Eiiko Daislii, and Seizan Shonin. Tlie l)ell-tower and

60 ft. by 45 ft. Tlie iloor of tlie large front room is made from 
boards of the mulbeiiy tree. The picture of waves dasliing against 
rocks was painted by Kauo Motonobu. 

Kwangakuin, 42 ft by !I9 ft., is tlie hall for the training of the 
priests. It was rebuilt in 1823. 

Among the troasiu'es of the temple are pictures of Sliaka ly 
Shika, a Chinese artist of the To dynasty; and a picture of Amida 
by Eshin which is considered the best work of that celebrated artist 
and priest. 

Nanzenji. Tliis Buddhist building, also called Zuiryo-zan, is 
on tlie east side of Hiromiolii, Sanjo. It is one of tlie five chief

On the east is another hall which was bronght from the Momojrama 

Palace in Fushimi, having been presented to tlie temple by tlie 

Tokogawa family. Nanzenin is at the foot of a hill called Yoka-

Sammon. The main building was bronght from Momoyama Palace in 

Fashimi daring the Keicho period (loOC-lOl-i). It has a noted room 

called Kiku-no-ma, or Ohiysanthemum Room, so called fi*om tlie 

beautiful llowera painted ly Kano Yukiuobu. Tlie pictui^s of tlie 

anno and bamboo in the Bamboo Boom, and of sagos in Naka-uo-ma, 

or Middle Boom, were painted by Kano Naouobii. In the slirine of 

the latter room is a statue of Jizo carved by Unkei. The picture of 

pine, plum, and bamboo in the Kami-no-ma, oi- Upper Boom, was 

painted by Kano Tanyu. Tlie gaixleu called Tsiu-uJuune, or tlie Crane 

and Tortoise was designed by Kobori Eusliu. In the west part is a 

small building called Kaisando, while in the east is a pond, and 

higlier up on the hill is a sluine of lyeyasu. In what is known as 

Shoin iXwte is a oelolrated room known as tlie Boom of Kight 

Windows, wliich is intended for the tea coramouial. 

Among tlie traaswes of the temple are pictures of mountain scenery

Takanaga, the eldest son of the Emperor Godaigo died in 1337 at 
tlie castle of Kanegasaki in tlie province of Euliizen,but his head was 
sent to Kyoto for entombmont 

Okazaki, or Hill Cape, owes its name to its position as related to 
the hill called Kagiira-oka on tlie north. It is a quiet place whore 
many wealthy people have erected their counti-y villas. A part of 
it has been taken for tlie grounds of the National Exhibition. The 
fanners of Okazaki have given especial attention to maiket gardening, 
their skill enabling them to produce vegetables at an unusually eai-ly 
season. The enormous radishes grown here often weigh 6 or 7

and the world became Ught onoe more. In later ages tlie god wor- 
sluped at Kamo and the god Kotukatsn i«peated on tliis liill tlie dance 
whioli is known by tlie name of hutfurUf and thus the liill received its 
present designation. 

The present buildings .were erected in 1648 with money presented 
by tlie Imperial Government. Hie following deities are enshrined ; 
Takemilcazuchi-no-Mikoto, Iwaiuuslii-no-Mikoto, Amenokoyane-no- 
Mikoto, and Hime-no-Kami. Tliere are four main slirines, one for 
each of these gods. They axe all small ; eadi measuring 12ft. by 
6fi, and are 13ft. high. Tliere are tliirteen subordinate shrines. 
Tlie grounds of tlio temple couipribe an area of about 7 j acros. In 
front of the main temple, near the second poiial, tliere is a small 
pond called Byutakn which is supposed to be inhabited by a dragon- 
god. To the south of the main temple is an octagonal Bhriiio 
painted vermilion, and tliatdied with reeds. It is called Saijosho 
Daigengu. In this building ai-e enshrined all the celestial and 
terrestrial divinities. Around it is a fence on which are hung many 
small tablets inscribed with the names of many of these 
deities. At the right hand is an old well called 'Tlie 
Water of Myojo." * Myojo is tlie name of a star which is said to 
have tumbled long ago into this well. 

Near tlie summit of the hill is the slirine of Takenaka Inaii. 
Tliere are many azaleas gi'owing near liere which attract people at 
the time of blossoming. In tlie fall many persons come to dig the 
mushrooms which grow abundantly on the hill. The annual 
festival of Yosliida Temple occurs on April iStli. Minor festivabi 
are held on Uie first day of eadi montlu 

To-Sanjo was formerly a large grove, wliloli lias now been re- 
duced to a single mound-lilce elevation on the Yfesi side of tlie road 
in front of the Hoiikoji Toinplo in Okazaki. Tlio place is piipulorly 
known as the Nve drove. Nite is the name of a faljulous aiuinal 
which is suppoEed to liave lived heie in the time of the Emperor 
Konoye (1142 — 1155). At the dead of night it would ride on a cloud 
tlirough the air and stop on Uie roof of tlie Sliisliinden, or Hall of 
State, in tlie Imperial Palace, where it greatly annoyed the Emperor. 
At last Minamoto Yorimasa, the bravest warrior of the time, was 
ordered to watdi tlie cloud and endeavor to destroy the monster.

ia aamttmi without any master. Foiiy-seven of them determined 
that Uiey would revenge their xnastei-'s death by slaying the one who 
had been its cause. With great patience and shrewduess they 
developed their plans until in January, 1703, during a severe snow- 
storm they forced their way into the mansion of Yoshihide, whose 
head they cut off tliat they might offer it at their master's gra>e 
where they all committed hurakiri Since that time tlioy liavo been

Tliere is » fine view from ilie outBide galleiy. 

The main temple faces ilie souili and ie 146 feet by 111 feet. 
In front is a tablet written by the Emperox Oonara (1527-1557). 
Within the hall is a slirine 9 feet hf 12 feet where is installed an 
image of Buddha carved by Euko Daishi. At the left is an image 
of Amida, while to tlie right are images of Tokngawa leyasn, his 
mother, and his son Hidetada. Under the eaves of the galleiy in 
the south-east part of the building is the well-lcnown Cliionin 
Umbrella. It is said by some to have been placed tlieiie in oi^der to 
give a touch of imperfection to ilie temple. Otliers say that it llew 
thither from the hands of a boy whose form had been temporarily 
assumed by ilie Sliinto deity of Inari. 

The Assembly Hall, which is commonly spoken of as a room with 
a thousand mats, is behind tlie main building witli which it is 
connected by corridors. Tlie flours of all tlie coiridors of the temple 
are so constri^cted tliat in walking over iliem tlieie is produced a 
sound whidi is tliought to resemble tlie siiigiug of the wjuifiu, ilie 
Japanese nightingale. The hall which opens to the soutli is 141 feet 
by 78 feet In the center facing south is an image of Amida 
carved by Eshin Sozu. Another 16 feet high facing west is of 
Ohinese origin. ^ 

The Dai Hojo, or Main Hall, to tlie east of Uie Assembly Hall is 
105 feet by 78 feet To it are attadied tlie Tumon, or Chinese 
Qate, and the Okurumayose, or chief entranse. In tlie latter is 
a painting of a lion by Taiiyu, and a picture of the Imiiorial l^alace 
at Nara by Domono Matalioi. The goidun at Uio wcbt is nauX to have 
been much liked by Uie Slioguu lyemitsu. The one of the oast is 
called the Qarden of Kwacliozan. In front of the grove is a pond 
having a small bridge tliat is made from petrified camphor-wood. 
The pine tree on the bank is said to have been planted by lyeinitsu. 
In the Crane Room are pictures of pine trees and cranes by Nao- 
nobu. In the Room of Buddlia ai-e deposited the ihai of the Toku. 
gawa family. An thai is a tablet representing a deceased person 
and inscribed with his posthmnous name. There are also pictures 
of lotus^iowers by Naoiiobu. Toward the east are 3 rooms intended 
for tlie use of tlie Emperor, tlie upper one beiug that in which he 
sat when he visited tlie temple. The ceiling is in the style known 
as kmiiban. The pictures are by Nobumasa. On the north behind 
tliese rooms is another suite known as Tokudo-uo-ma, which was 
the hall where princes were ordained as priests* The picture of 
a plum and bamboo is by Naonobu, while tliose of the chiy.

TTegamido is situated on the north side of Shorenin. Here is 
installed tlie image of Shinran Slionin who was born in 1178, 
being the son of Fnjiwara Arinori, adesoendant of KamaHo Daijin; 
while his motlier was the eldest daughter of Tsushima-no-Kami 
Tosliidiika, the first son of Haoliiman-Taro Yoshiiye. F^om boy- 
hood he had an intense desire to escape from the ordinary oooupa- 
tions of the world in order to be a priest. When nine years old he 
received the tonsure and became the disdple of Jioliin, tlie abbot of 
Sliorenin. He afterwaids went to Mt. Hiei for study and having 
learned there tlie mysteries of the Tendai sect he originated a new 
system based on the doctrine of salvation tlirough faitli in anotlier's 
(Amida*s) power ratlier tlian by one's own fnerits. The Sliin sect 
which lie tlius founded has become one of tlio most powerful in 
Japan. When Sliinmn received the tonsure Jidhin drew a picture of 
his face and afterwards carved a wooden statue of the youth, placing 
upon its head tlie liair tliat had been shaved off. Hence it is often 
called the Uegami or ** planted hair" image, and is held in high 
honor by Buddhists. 

Yoshimizu Park is on tlie slope of the liill soutli of Sanjo 
and east of Awatagudii. There are a number of tea-houses, public 
halls, and kwaiaeki restaurants; tlie latter being establishments patro- 
nized by people of the highest classes, everything from the smallest 
utensil to ilie elaborately prepared food, being of tlie best quality. 
Tlie place is peculiarly well-fit^^l for tlie euteiiaiument of small 
parties, as the hill, though not high, commands a fine view of the 
city and tlio siuTuuiuliug mountains. The hill as well as the gnuloiis 
abound with olierry and maple trees which add to the attiuctivouoss 
of the place. 

KoaflTO is the name loosely applied to the hilly section at the 
eastern extremity of Sanjo and west of Yamasliina. One portion, 
somewliat higher than the rest is called Hinooka-toge. Tlie name 
Keage, whidi hterally means "to raise by kicking" is said to liave 
originated from the following incident. When Minamoto Yoshi- 
tsune (See description of Mt. Kunuiia) at the age of 10 was escaping 
to tlie province of Mutsu he happened to be seen at tliis place by a 
Taira soldier named Sekihara Yoiohi who, on seeing the young noble, 
recognized him as belonging to the Minamoto clan, and so caused 
his horse to kick up the water beside the road in such a way that it 
splashed against Yoshitsune. The young and high-spirited youth, 
unable to brook such an insult, at once attacked the warrior and

monly believed tliat Ijeueatli it is a hollow of nukuown depth, a 

line 600ft. long failing to reach the bottom. The grounds comprise 

about S aores. Tliere are 20 subordinate slirines, together witli the 

other Imildings usually found in Sliinlo temples. Behind Uie main 

building is a large camphor tree bound wiUi a a^'menatixi, or straw 

rope, which shows that it is regarded with great reverence. On the 

east side is the old " Kagashima Phi m-tree," and near it is the 

**Futami Stone." In the garden connected witli ilie office of tlie 

temple is **Tadamori*8 Lantern" of whidi the following well-known 

stoiy is told.

In the temple grounds are many tea-houses, sliooting-galleries, 
and shops. In old times two specially famous tea-houses stood on 
the road between tlie south gate and the entrance. One of these 
tliat still exists is called the Nakamura-ro. 

Tlie regular festival of tlie temple is held from Uie 17th to the 
34th of July. It is the famous Gion Festival, one of the largest 
^lat is observed iu Japan. Tliree small slirinos are cairied in 
the procession upon tlie shoulders of men. There are seven 
enormous spears to whidi are attaclied various ornaments. 
The most conspicuous objects in tlie procession ara eleven lofty 
oars drawn by oxen. On Moh car is a tall image, and also a band of 
performers upon musical instruments. The streets are crowded by 
those who join tlie procession or stand to see it pass by. 

Among the treasures of the temple are a screen with figures of a 
oock and hen by Okio; and swords forged by Muuochika, Samoji, aiul 
Bizen Osafune. 

Fublio Park at Maruyama. ^i^ V^K <^^ tlie western 

base of the hill called Sliogun-zuka, contains about 21 acres. In 
old poems the looaUty was called Makuzugahara and referred to as 
a wild, barren waste. Afterwards several temples were ei'ected. Many 
of tliem have entirely disappeared, while others still exist within 
tlie hmits of the Park. In 1871, and later in 1836, the grounds 
were beautified and received the name of the Public Park of Kyoto.

4. Hanxyama Anyoji. This, which is one of the most important 
temples of the neighborhood, is on tlie slope of the hill just back of the 
Ya-ami Hotel. It was built by Denlcyo Daislii, the founder of tlie Tendai 
seot During the Kenkiu era (1100-1108) the priest Jidiin repaired 
this temple and made it his residence. Still later it was the abode 
of a priest named Kokna of the Ji seot to which the temple has 
since belox^ged. Before the Restoration of 1863 there were six 
monasteries, of which only one now remains. Many of the build- 
ings were erected l^ a blind man named Gpnsho who wasaperform- 
er upon tlie musical instrument called 6tira, which resembles the 
guitar It was his ambition to be invited to the Imperial Palace 
tliat he might tliere display his skill before the Emperor. Coming 
to this temple to pray for sudi an invitation he vowed that, if his 
desire was granted, he would erect as many now buildings as might 
be within his ability. Somewliat later, his re])utation readied the 
Court so that he was asked to play before tlie Emperor Gokomatsu 
(1893-1412) who showed liis appreciation by giving the musician a 
purple robe and raising him to the rank of Kentfyo, 

5. ld[aruyama Hot Water Spring. This is south of the Ya-ami 
HoteL There is a three-stoiy house and a beautiful ganleu. 
Though spoken of as a " spring," Uie carbonated water is brought 
from the Ika River and is here warmed for bathing purposes. 

6. Higaslii-yama Chorakiiji. This temple is at the south side of 
the Spring. It was founded by Denkyo JDaishi at the command of 
the Emperor Kwammu, the founder of Kyoto. The image of 
Ewannon is said to have been found by Deul^o on his journey back 
from Cliina where he had spent several years in study. 

7. Flags made from a garment of the Emperor Antoku. These 
are in tlie temple last mentioned. When Kemei Monin, the 
mother of the child-Emperor Antoku (1181-1185), became a nun; 
a priest of Uie temple performed the ceremony. As a reward a 
gannent belonging to the Emperor was given to the priest who 
made them into sixteen flags. Soon after, the nun togetlier with 
tlie Emperor, who was then only six years old, was upon one of tlie 
junks belonging to the Taiia family in the lerrible sea-fight at 
Dan-no-ura, ueai* Sliimonoseki, when the Minamoto family gained 
a complete viotoiy over its rival. The grandmother of Antoku in 
her despair clasped tlie child in her arms and, notwithstanding tlie

11. Sorinji. This temple was muoli honored by the Emperors 
of successive ages. It was founded by Denkyo Daishi at the com- 
mand of the Emperor Kwommu, and was regai^ded as a " bd%u-in ** 
of tlie Teiidai sect; tliat is, it was anthoiized under certain 
oiroumstanoes to represent the main temple of tliat 
sect It possesses a statue of Yaknshi Nyorat carved liy Deukyo, a 
wilting by the Emperor Ookasliiwabara (loUl — 1526), another 
writing Ly tlie priest Kokua, an iron idol sent from China, and a 
representation of the Prince Shotoku at the age of two yeai*s. There 
was formerly kept in the temple a copy by the Emperor Oosliira- 
kawa (liou — 1159) of tlie Bodilhist work Hokks Kyo ; but it was 
burned during the civil war of djin in the lath ceutiiry. The 
oslies were collected and buried in a mound wheraon there is now 
growing the Uokke Pine. Near it is a monument to Uie aiiist 
Okio, a native of the province of Tamba. Although his real name 
was Knnii Okio, he is commonly called Marnyama Okio. He was 
ilie founder of tlie school of art known as Shijo-lia. Disregnrding 
tlie many petty rales observed by painters of his age, he regarded 
nature as furniBhing tlie only proper models' for ai-tists. His re- 
presentations of birds and animals are speoially prized. 

12. Tlie Tomb of Taira Yasuyori. This is near Sorinji. Yasu- 
yori was one of several persons who helci a seci-et conclave in 
Sliisliigatani to plot fur tlie overtlirow of the aiTogaiit rule of Taii*a 
no Kiyomori. Tlie consphncy becoming known, ho was oxtlod to 
the island called Kilutigashinia, near Satstuna. Tliroe yeai-s later, 
having been pardoneii and allowed to return to Kyoto, he lived quietly 
in liis villa just before Sorinji. Here he wrote a book entitled 
Homotsushiu. In this portion of tlie Paik grow many maple trees 
and lespedeza bushes. 

IS. Near the tomb of Yasuyori stand two stone inonunionts in 
memoiy of Saigyo and Ton-a, two notod poets of Uie middle ages. 
Near them is a small hut, called Saigyo-an, containing the statues 
of the poets carved by themselves. Saig)'o's real name was Sato 
Yosliikiyo. He was a descendant of Fnjiwara Hidesato a famous 
archer. Saigyo himself was skilled in the use of tlie bow and was 
well versed in militaiy tactics. He was much favored by tlie ex- 
Emperor Toba (11U8 — 1123). Becoming dissatisfied witli tlie 
luxury prevaiUng about him, he went to Saga where he became a

Hie first room into wliioh yisitors are shown contains, among 
oilier objects, some gold screens by Hasegawa Tohaku, Kano Moto- 
noba, and Kano Koi. Another by Domono Matahei represents tlie 
coming of some Oorean envoys to the city of SaJcai near Osaka. 
Tliere is a notewortliy roU-piotnre with a portrait of Shin-no Shiko, a 
Chinese Blmperor. Tliere are also shown a mother-of-pearl writing- 
box thai belonged to Hideyoshi, a olothes-raok that belonged to liis 
wife, and other reUcs. 

The gaiden, planned by Kobod Ensho, contains the beautiful 
Tsuru-Kame-no-Ike, Crane and Tortoise poxid; the two small islands 
at the south being regarded as a crane, while the one at the north 
is a tcwtoise. Beliind the gaxtlen two pine-dad hills called Washi- 
gamine and Hakusan add to its attractiveness. Tlie small bridge 
called Kwangotsndai, Monn-gai&ing Platform, was brought from the 
Momoyama Talaco at Fusliiml, wlioro Uuloyoshi is tuiid tu have 
used it for the purpose implied by its name. 

In the building called Kaisan-do, or Founder's Hall, is a shrine 
containing tlie wooden image of Sauye, the fkst abbot of the 
monasteiy. The ceiling is composed in part of the ceiling of a room 
in a war-sliip used by Hideyoshi at the time he sent an army to 
invade Corea, and in part of the roof of his wife's carriage. The 
paintings are by Kano Motouobu. The Main Hall is 18 ft. by 4U ft., 
while the back poiiion,2.)ft. by I'jft, iscalled Shindo. The picture of 
a dragon on the ceiling of the latter was painted by Kano Motonori, 
wliile the censer in tlie sliape of an octopus was brought back from 
Corea by the noted general, Kato Kiyomasa. 

Tlie Owaryo-no-Roka or Oallexy of the Sleeping Dragon, leads to 
the Otamaya, a building 37 ft. by 33ft. In it are placed an image 
worshiped by Hideyoshi in time of war, another once possessed by 
his wife, a wooden image representing Hideyoshi at the age of GJ, 
and one representing his wife at the age of 42 in the garb of a nun. 
The inner walls are painted with five different colore, and inlaid 
with gold and silver. Tlie lacquered shrine lias representations of 
musical instruments and basket of flowers. The lacquer work is 
said to be the first of what is now called Kodaiji lacquer. The 
picture of mountain scenery was painted by Kano Motonobu. 

On tlie top of the liill east of Otamaya are Sliigure-no-ohin and 
Karakasa-no-chin; two small summer-houses brought from the 
Momoyama Palace in Fusliimi, where they liad been built by Sen- 
no Rikyu. From the first of them there is a fine view.

under the famons priest Ko4in.hei. Returning to Japan lie began 
to propagate the new doctrines he had learned, thus besoming tlie 
founder of the Zen sect. 

lliough the temple is in the most crowded part of the city, its

The diief images aiie Sliaka witli two attendants. Tlie gate before

There are two bell-towers, the western one containing the famous 
bell of Kawara-in. A temple of tliat name was built at Rokujo 
near tlie close of tlie dtli ceutuiy by Genyn. After it fell into ruins 
tlie bell was tlirowu into the Kamo River wliera it remained until 
Eisai received permission from tlie government to take it for his 
temple. Tiie bell is struck 90 times every midnight and IS times 
near day break, the la^ strokes repi^seutiug so many kinds of cares 
and desires from which men need to be set fi«e. Accoiding to 
tradition it was veiy hard to pull the bell from the river until Eisai 
ordered the men to call out alternately his name and tliat of his 
disciple Shuza. Hie efficacy of this was speedily sliown as the bell 
was easily raised to the bank. At tlie present time men call out 
similar words when moving anything heavy. 

Yasni Temple. '^^^^ ^ on the east side of Kenninji. It is 
very old, dating fi'om a time before the founding of Kyoto. It 
foimerly belonged to the temple called Yasui Kwanshoji. In an- 
cient times Fuji ware no Kamatan, who frequented this temple, 
planted a wistaiia vine which iiourished and produced sucli beauti- 
ful, blossoms that tlie shrine became known as the ** Temple of 
Flowers." Still latei tlie Emperor Sutoku (1121—1141) planted a

plaoe and retnmed hy way of Slio-Bokudo in Saga. Anotlier ex- 
planation is that when the Emperor Kwammu removed his oapital 
to Kyoto this plaoe was ohoeen for the funeral rites of the oommon 
people and they were hnried at Toribe close by. Henoe this plaoe 
was called Rokndo signifying the six paths (wisdom, charity, con- 
tempUtion, morality, energy, and patience) hy whicdi Ninrana is 
obtained. On tlie 0th and lOth of August Growds of people come 
here to welcome tlie spirits of the dead tliat then re-visit the earth. 

Kiyomisu-dera* 1^^ Buddhist temple, also called Otowa-san, 
is on Matsuwara St. at the east end of that portion known as Kiyo. 
misu-sslca. On both sides of this toAa, or steep road, is sold ihe 
temous earihen-ware known as Kiyomizu-yaki. The distance from 
Sanjo Bridge is a little over 1 J miles. The 17th day of each month 
there is a festival when orowds of worshipers are in attendance. 

The traditional origin of the temple is as follows : — In the reign 
of the Emperor Konin (770-7dl), a Buddhist priest named Elnchin 
lived in Kojima-dera, a temple in Yamato. On account of instruc- 
tion received in adream, lie found near the bank of the Kisu Biver a 
stream of golden color. 'JVacing it to its source he came to a small 
hut where was seated an aged man dressed in white robes. In reply 
to questions this old man, whose name was Oyoei, said, **For two 
hundred years I liave been here praying to Kwamion and waiting 
for you to come and take my place for a while in order that I may 
make a journey to a distant province. TaJce my hut for your home 
and from yonder log make an image of Kwannon. In case my 
return should be delayed until after it has been completed, tlien 
you must also build a shrine in which to install tlie image. As 
Ennhin assented to tliese propositions, tlie old man started out on 
his journey. Afterwards Elnohin found a pair of slioes lying upon 
the ground near by, from which circumstance he was led to believe 
that the old man was a manifestation of the deity who had now 
returned to heaven. Though Enohin was anxious to fulfil his pro- 
mise, he found himself unable to even move tlie log. For years he 
gazed at it in dismay, when at last, in 7d3, a noted general named 
Tamura-maro, while on a hunting expedition in order to get meat 
for his sick wife, pursued a stag to the neighborhood of tlie hut 
Hearing from Endiiu all tliat lias happened, he became so interest- 
ed in ihe story that he hastened home to repeat it to his wife. Slie 
said to liim thai tlie slaying of animals on lier account would serve 
only to increase her guilt and its punishment, while the making of 
the image would be a meritorious deed that would surely bring its

Tuniurado, 26f i square, was built, as has been said, by Tiuniiraniaro 
himself. It contains statues of him and of Enohin 

The Asakurado, on tlie east, has an image made in imitation of the 
one installed in the Main Hall South of it is a noted water-basin 
having an owl carved on its f oondation. The neighboring bridge is 
called Todoroki-baslii. 

The Hondo, or liain Hall, is a bnilding in tlie style of a palace, 
with tlie roof made of hino/ti bark. It is tfCft by 74ft. There is an 
outer coiridor called naijin, wliile the imier part is the nai-naijm. 
Tlie latter contains the principal statue of Kwannon and several 
other images. In front of the building is a bukdf or stage for danc- 
ing, which is so constructed over a steep slope that i^ outer edge 
is o^ft. from the ground below. On the 17th of August in eadh 
year there is a kind of religions dance called Ro.'cuaairnembtd9u. Two 
small wings extending from the platform are for the use of the 
ordiestra. Formerly many devotees leaped from tliis stage to tlie 
ground below, believing that in this way an answer to theii* pi-ayers 
would be eecui^ In order to prevent sudi acts, the edge of tlie 
platform is now protected by railings. Many tablets are hung on 
tliis stage ; and on the western side is an image of Amida called 
Shiodadii Nyoi-aL 

Jinuslii Jinslia is a Bliiuto slirine built on the bank beyond tlie 
Main Hall. It is not known when it was constiiioted; but, if Uie 
tradition of its being re-built in 793 by Tamura-maro is con-eot, it 
antedates that year. Here are worsliiped Onamuchi-no-Mikoto and 
four other deities. The picture of a cUagon on the ceiling in Kagu- 
radd was painted by Kano. 

• Shakado, 80ft square, and facing west, is on the east side of the 
Main Hall. It contains a sitting image of Shaka. 

Honshido, also called Amidado, is south of Shakado and faces 
west. It is 38 ft. by 31 ft Besides an image of Amida, it contains 
othen of Kwaunon, Seishi, Jizo, and Enko DaishL 

Okuno-in is a liall of six sides built on tlie site of Oyoei's hut. 
Its chief image is of the Thousand-handed Kwannon. Theie are 
also images of Jizo, Bisliamon, and others. It lias a 6tUui, or 
dancing stage 32 ft. by 21 ft. 

The well-known waterfall called Otowa-no-taki is oast of the Main 
Hall at the foot of a long diglit of stone steps. Its source is a pond 
called Cliigo-ga-fudii wliicli is on the hill in the rear. The water 
is famous for its purity and coolness. It is believed tliat diseases of 
all kinds are cured by bathing in the fall. Above it is a shrine 
dedicated to Enchin.

letter produced in tlie Pickwick trial. Nor was this all. Another 
inscription read. **0n the east it welcomes the bright moon, and 
on the west bids l^well to the setting sun. " This was taken to be 
a oomparison of ly^yasu to tlie moon, while Hideyori, whose place 
he had usurped, was spoken of as the sun. Wlietlier treason was 
really suspected or whether the whole proaeeding wa? a part of 
lyeyasu's solieme for lessening tlie power of his rival is uncertain; 
but in either case the stopping of the expected festivities caused 
great displeasure to the Uirongs tliat had gathered. A riot, wliich 
the oflioials were unable to repress, resulted in much injury to per. 
sons and property. 

Hie statue was again destroyed by« the terrible earthquake of 
1662. Most of tlie bronze of which it was composed having been 
made into coins, a statue of wood was constructed a few years later. 
Tliis was Hti'uuk by lightning in 1775 and again in 171);^. On the 
latter occasion it was set on fire and wholly destroyed. In isul 
some Buddliists in Osaka constructed tlie present image which is 
only about Vio the size of tlie original one. It is placed in a build- 
ing which was formerly a dnessing-room of 'Hideyoshi. The dimeu- 
sions of the statue are said to be as follows. 

Height 12 ft. Widtli of Mouth 9 ft. 

Width of face 21 •* Lengtli of ear 12 ** 

LengUi <* ** 30 *' Circumference of neck. . 36 **

One can go by a galleiy to the back of the image and see the beams 
by which tlie parts of the image are joined and sustained. 

Near by is the bell which gave leyasu so mudi displeasure. It was 
oast by a founder named Sansho of Nagoya. After the tumultuous 
scenes connected with the dedicatoiy services, the boll lay useless for 
more than two centuries, until li.i-k when a tower was built and the 
bell hung there in. It is lift higlii 91ft. in diameter, and about 
11 indies thick. Thus, with the exception of the bell in Cliion-in, 
it is the largest in Japan. Its weight is about 63 tons. 

Toyokuni Jinsha. '^^^^ Sliinto slirine is on the south side

. Myoho-in* This, which ifi one of the principal temples of the 
Tendai sect, is situated east of tlie Imperial Museum. It was 
founded by Denl^o Daishi in the Eniyaku period (732 — 306). It 
waa originally one of tlie temples of Mt. Hiei, whence it was 
removed to Yasalca and afterwards to its present site. In 1134 the 
ex-Emperor Ooshiralmwa built witliin the temple grounds many 
buildings, among which was a residence for himself. In this way 
and by the grant of an extensive estate he laid tlie foundation of 
the temple's prosperity. He was the first priest of this temple to 
assume the name of Monseki, a title given to Imperial princes who 
become monks. From then until modem times, sons of the 
Emperor have held the office of abbot. When Uieie was no Im- 
perial prince, tlio son of some noble would be a^lopted ly tlio

the Palace lie was presented witli a sword; tlie Emperor bade liun 
farewell in the Sliisliiuden, a liall of tlie Palaoe: and the nobles 
escorted him to the sonthem gate. 

When Uie Imperial Palace was burned in the Temmei period 
(1731 — 1789) tliis temple was made the temporaiy residence of the 
Empress, who remained tliere for a year. It was in the building

ifi liare used of tlie 33 spaces between the pillars, whidi spaoee are 
each 12 ft. ; tlius makiug the building 39G ft. in length ; its breadth 
being 57 ft. It was built in 1132, at the command of the ex- 
Emperor Toba, by Taira-no-Tadamori, for the reception of 1,001 
images of the Eleven-faced Kwannon. Tliirty-two years later the 
ez-Emperor Qoshirakawa onlei^Toira-no-Sliigemori to erect another 
building of the same dimensions in which were placed l,OUl images 
of the Tliousand-Jianded, Tiiousand-e}'ed Keujizaison. Botli buildings 
with their contents were destroyed during a battle tliat occurred in 
1182. Having been restored by Mimamoto-no-Yoritomo, they 
were again burned in 1213. The present temple was erected in 1260 
by command of the Emperor Kameyama. 

In the center is an image, Id ft. high, of the Tliousand-handed 
Kwannon, which was made by Tankei. Around it are 23 images of 
tlie Buahut or followers of Kwannon ; while arranged in a series of 
long tiers are 1,001 images of Kwannon. On the Imnds, foreheads, 
and halos of these statues tliere are other representations of the 
same goddess ; so that the temple is often known as tliAt of the 
83,333 images of Kwannon. 

In front of the building is the well called Yonaki-iziuni, and a 
pond called Hi5tan-ike wliere in early summer tliere are blossoms of 
the plant called kakiUubata. 

The roof and sides at one end of the rear verandah are filled wiUi 
marks made by anows, while many of tlie iron hea^ls of the missiles 
are still euibeddod in the wood; showiug tliat this was once a 
famous place fur arolieiy. A priest, who was fond of that sport, 
was tlie first to dioose the ground liohiiul the temple for 
its practice; and it became a favorite spot whither came 
the aamurai of the city to test or exliibit their skill. To 
escape the summer's heat they transferred tlie target to the \emndali, 
where tlie degree of failure was marked by the place where the arrow 
struck the wood work. The victor in these contests was rewarded 
with a aaihaif or general's baton, made of gold or silver. It is 
recorded that Wasa Dailiachir5 from the province of Kii, in shooting 
13,053 arrows, caused 8133 to hit tlie mark at a distance of 32V)ft. 

A legend connected with tliis temple says that the ex-Einperor 
Ooshirakawa, being unable to gain from physicians any relief from 
the severe headaohes with which he was afflicted, went on a pilgrim- 
age to the temples of Kumano in the province of Kii. The deity 
there worshiped appeared to him saying that he ought to consult an 
Indian physician who was living at Inabado in Ky5to. He accord- 
ingly went to tliat temple and while spending the night in prayer

Higathi Hoogwanji, «» Karasimiani fiL, Aiirhijii, near tha

groundi include 14 aorea. The bnildingi have been burned four 
iunea, via. in 1788, 1800, 1850, and 1864. The last conflagration 
was in conaM^fin with the attempt of the Ghdslra troops to obtain 
possession of Ihe Palace and the Emperor, when, as nairated in the 
histoxioal sketah, a large part of Kyoto wa^ burned. Since that time 
a temporary building wliich stands in the nodiliern part of the 
enclosure lias been occupied. In 1870 plans were made for the 
rebuilding of the Daishido, or founder's Hall, and Amidado ; the 
frame of the former being erected in May, 1339; and of the latter, 
in November, 1892. It ia expected that the opening of the two 
buildings will be celebrated in prll, 1895. Great zeal has been 
shown in tlie erection of these magnificent buildings. Tlie Higashi 
or Eastern branch of the Shin sect has great iniluence among the 
common people, especially among those living in the provinces on 
the eastern shore of the Japan Sea. Many stories are told of the 
sacrifices made hy tliem in order to help in Uie erection of the build- 
ings. It is said tliat tlie peasants in one place were desirous of 
sending for tlieir contribution a magnificent kcffahi tree to be used 
for one of the pillars in the temple. Tlie tree was however regarded 
as sacred hy those who had the right of disposal and Uiey therefore 
refused to allow it to be cut down. One of the peasants therefore 

committed suicide by hanging himself from the branches of the 
tree, thus polluting it so Uiat no f urtlier objection was made to its 
removal. Many women out off their hair tliat it might be made 
into ropes tliat could be used in drawing the materials used in con. 
struction. Some of these ropes, of which there were 53 in all, may 
be seen at tlie temple. Tlie longest is aoofi in length aud 1.8ft. in 
circumference. The largest has a circumference of 1.6ft., and is 
138ft. long. Hie architect of Daishido is Ito Heizaemon of Nagoya. 
Hie carvings are mostly by Tanaka Bunya, Soiie Tokubei, and 
Kuyama Shintar5, of Kyoto; Tamura Risliidii of Etohn; and 
Hayase Cliobei of Nagoya. Tlie arcliitect of Amidado is Kinoko 
Tosai ; the carvings being for the most part by Matsui J5unsai and 
Tamura lUsliichi. 

'Hie now Daishido, or Founder's Hall, which staiuls in the oontor 
of Uie grounds, facing the east, is a grand, massive building, being 
the largest temple in Japan. Its front measures 2dOft., wliile the 
depth is 112ft The number of pillars is 232 and of tiles on the 
roof is 175,067. The wood visible to the eye is keyaki^ the marking 
of some of the massive pillars being very beautiful. The innermost 
and holiest room, called Uie Naijin, lias an image of Kenshin 
Daishi, the founder of the Shin sect. The ceiUng is of what is

Slioseien, tlie pleasure-garden of the temple is about 1 eh^ east 
of tlie temple. As in former times Ki^Jni (cUnti fufoa) was planted 
around tlie enclosure, it is commonly known as Kikoku-tei, and the 
neighboring streets are called Kikoku-baba. Tlie garden, which has 
an area of about 7 acres, was originally the pleasure-ground of 
Kawara Sadaijin Oenyu, In 1631, Tokugawa lemitsn gave it to 
Sennyo Shoiiiu, the I3th abbot. H-deyoslu's MomoyaniA Palace 
was brought here, and tlio garden planned by Isliikawa Joisaii, the 
famous poet. The garden in front of Riuodii-tei was designed by 
Kobori Eushu. The special places of interest in these gardens 
were formerly reckoned as 13 in number, but only a few of them 
escaped the conflagration of liQL Ingetsu-ike is a large pond 
occupying about a third of the whole garden and liaving tliree islands 
which are covered with large ti^es. The view of tlie moon sliiuing 
upon the pond as seen from the Shinsetsu Bridge is much praised. 
Several large trees growing near it have their distinctive names. A 
Ktone lantern of nine layers upon a small island is said to mark tlie 
tomb of Gtonyu. Shikuen-tei, or Distance- shoi-tenuig House, is a 
tea>room so named because in olden times, ere tlie ti'eos had grown 
so large, Mt. Hiei could be so dearly seen tliat it seemed as though 
it were part of the garden. Tlie frame-pieaes of the ceiling are 
made from the liandles of spears used by seven of Hideyeehi's noted 
warriors. The basin by the side of tlie house is one that was 
used by Oenyu. A bridge called Kwaitokwaku leads to tlie noilli. 
On the east of it is a wistaria vine presented by the £mperor 
Oomizuiioo. Bokwa-kaku is a pavilion in pure Chinese style, its 
ceiling made so as to represent one of the poems of Isliikawa 
Jdzan. Fi'om the eaves on the north there hangs a tablet with a 
picture representing Kumagai Naozane and Atsumori. (See the story 
in connection witu the description of Kurodani Temple.) There 
are several small buildings, one of them liaving a tablet with tliree 
charaoteis writteh by tlie priest-prince Sliinnin. Cianes, ducks, 
and other birds are kept in the garden where one would hardly

BO drawn iliat it is best seen wlien one looks ap from tlie position 
awnmed when kneeling before another. The name of tlie artist is 
unknown, though it is popularly known as Uie picture painted by 
Hidqroahi. It is said that this liaughty general, being aooustomed 
to regard others as beneath him, never liked to look upward. 
When the artist had finislied painting the picture Hitleyoshi's - 
onriosity to see it led him witliout thinking to glance up at it 
Bealiaing that he had been oaught by the artists's trick, he* 
esmsed himself by saying tliat he was not looking; at the mountain, 
but was only trying to select the best place for inserting some pine 
trees into the picture. Accordingly he felt obliged to use the 
brushes in adding this feature to tlie painting whidi for tliis 
reason became known as his. From these rooms there is a fine 
Tiew of the dty and the Eastern Hills. 

Bokkoji, otherwise known as Jukokusan,is situated in Taka- 
kura of Bnkkoji St Tliis, which is Uie head temple of Uie 
Bukkoji division of tlie Sliin sect, was origi nally founded in Yaina- 
shinaby Sliinran Shonin. The Emperor Juutoku (1211 — 1221) 
bestowed upon it tlie name Koxyu Shohoji, gave it a tablet 
inscribed with this title, and selected it as one of tlie places for liis 
own devotions. It was afterwsids removed to Higashiyama in 
Kyoto. Here it is said that a tliief one night broke into the temple 
steaUng the image of Buddha which he cast into the Kamo River 
near Mijo. Tliat night Uie Imperial Palace was lighted with a 
strange radiance whose source on investigation was found to be 
the image in the river. Tlie statue was taken to the palace and 
afterwards to the temple whidi was tlienceforth called Amida- 
BukkojL In 1465 the abbot was gi>en tlie title of monaekL In 
1580 Hideyoshi desiring the site of the temple for tlie erection of 
the Daibutsu, it was removed to the present location. Since then 
it has several times been destroyed by fire, the present building 
being only about 10 years oUi 

Among the treasures of the temple are a wooden statue of 
Honen carved by himself; statues carved by Sliinran representing 
his parents, and many old luiuging pictures. 

Honkoknji is on Oojo and luokuma St, north of the Hon. 
gwanji Temple. It is the headquarters of the Nidiiren sect and 
has 570 subordinate temples. It was originally founded by f 
Nichiren himself in 1253 at Kamakura^ where it had tlie name 
Hokkedo. Eleven years later Nioliiren re-named it Taiko-zan 
Honk^iji. . In lso7 the Shogun Hisaaki Shuiwio^esented 02

Toji, *l8o called Kioo Qokoknji, is on Nishiknjo and C3miya St 
at the south-west end of the city an I about J miles from Smjo 
Brid;;e. It belon;;s to tlie Sliinjon seot and luts 18 ) subordinate 
temples. Crowds of paople gather here on the 21st of ea^h mouth 
when there is a festival in honor of Kobo Daishi, the founder of 
tlie sect 

In 790 the Emperor Kwammu commanded the Daluar;on, Iseto, 
to build large temples on eauh side of the main gate of th3 I'alaje. 
In 823 the western temple was removed to Nara, while tliat on the 
east was given to Kdi>o Daishl. Heuie the name Toji, or £Ust 
Temple. In 1250 the Emperor Junua adiled a new liall aiU olianj- 
ed the name to Kioo Ookdkuji. Tlie buildinjs were biurnad in 
U3G, but soon rebuilt The grounds, which cover 10] anes, aie 
surrounded by a solid wall of eai'th. There is a famous five-storied 
pagoda, 22 ft squaie, and 2J-1 ft higli. It has been burned eight 
times, tlie fire in three cases Imving been caused by lightuinj. 
Tlie present buildinj was erected in IGGI by Tokugawa leyasn in 
obedience to the command of the Empress Myojo. Within is a 
statue of Dainiuhi NyoraL It is said tliat after the original pagoda 
was built, it be^an to assume a leanin^^ position. Iii answer to 
Kobo Daitthi's prayers it was restored to the proper condition. 
According to another version of the story Kobo Daishi, by di.'^ing 
the lotus pond on the side of the tower opposite that to which it 
was leaning, caused the ground to settle and thus mode tlia pa;;oda 
retui-n to the perpendicular. 

Tlie gate called Hakkyaku facing the soutu was buiU in 13^2. 
Shokudo, formerly used by Kobo Da.shi as a dining liall, is U7 ft 
l)y 4J ft, and contains images of the Thousand-lianded Kwannon 
and SUitenno. Having been destroyed in 1219 by an eiith. 
quake, it> was restored in lil2. The ceiling has a picture of a 
dragon painted by Oanku. The gate on the east side called Keiga- 
mon aud formerly used by Imi^erial envoys was built at the close 
of tlie 12th century by Mon.^;aku Shonin, who also built on the site 
of an older treasure-house the one now standin^r;, and the gate on 
tlie east side known as Fukai-mon, or Never-to-be-opened portal, 
which is said to be so named because, ever since Kobo Daishi 
entered the temple by tluit gate, no one else has been allowed to 
use it Others account for the name from the refusal of Ashikaga 
Takauji to open the gate when near the middle of the I4th centuiy 
he was beseiged in Uiis temple by Nitta Yoshisada. Tlie KoJo, or

Nijo RikyS or Palace. ^^^ ^ often spoken of as tlie 

"Oastle." It 18 situated on Nijii west of HorUcawa. Here in I56O 
was bnilt a castle by Oda Nobuuaga for the residence of Yosliiaki, 
the last of the Asliilcaga Sliogtin. It was burned by Akechi, the 
faithless vassal who caused Nubunaga's deatlu 'Hie present edifice 
was bnilt in 1601 by lyeyasu. Under the Tokugawa Shoguns it was 
known as Nijo-no-Kiujo (Goldon Contle of Nijo), or simply as Nijo 
no Shiro (Nijo Oostle). It was hold by ropresoutatives of the 
Shoguns under tlie pretence of protesting the Emperors, though in 
reality they were more couoerned in watching the progress of affairs 
in the Court and protecting the interests of the Tokiigawa family. 
After the last of the Shoguns, Keiki (Yoshinobu) had returned his 

delegated power to the E^pei'or, the Castle was converted into an 
office for Uie Daijokwan, or Council of State. Tliere on April 6, 
ISO-), ocoiired a scene pregnant with meaning to the future of the 
country. ** The Mikado proceeded tliither in person and in tlie 
preeenoe of tlie assembled court nobles and the territorial princes 
the ten-itorial princes took an oath. By this oath he promised 
that a deliberative Assembly should be formed, and all measures 
be decided by public opinion; that the uncivilized customs of 
former times should be broken tlirongh, and the impartiality and 
justice displayed in the workings of nature adopted as a basis 
of action; and that intellect and learnin;:; should be sought 
for throughout the world, in order to establish the foundations 
of the Empire." (Kinsei Shiriaku. Translated by Satow.) Later 
the Castle was used for the office of the prefectural government 
It was greatly damaged by the vandalism tliat prevailed 
during the yeais that immediately followed the Restoration. Tlie 
prefectural government took away for better preservation many 
of the paintings and other decorations; but much harm was 
done to the painted doors, metal-work, and other things tlutt wei^ 
left behind. For instance, the famous painting by Naonobu,

The Second Btiildin^ is west of the first with which it is con- 
xiected by two verandahs, the outer and inner, of which the latter 
is much broader. Of tlie four rooms, the principal is called Shiki- 
dai-no-ma. It faces south and contains -lo mats. On the northern 
wall are painted two large pine trees. Three rooms to the north, 
each of 12 mats, were for tlio use of the Iluju, or Oounuil of 
Elders whioli was the cabinet of tlie Tokugawa government. All 
these apartments have tlie broader inner verandah on the north 
and south sides, which essentially forms two additional rooms of 
50 and 38 mats. 

Tlie Tliird Building is next to the First in size. It is often 
called Hiroma or Wide Hall. Tlie laiigest apai-tment called Kitano- 
ma, or North Room, contains 49 mats. An eagle on a large pine 
tiee is painted on the gilt screens. To the south a room of 4U 
mats is called San-no-ma. The ixmwna here are remarkably fine, 
Especially one liy Hidari Jingoro roprosentiiig poaoockij. Tliough 
some of the mmnia have the appearance of open work, examina- 
tion will show that the decorations of tlie two sides difTer greatly 
from eadi other. On the west are tliree rooms of which the two 
noiihem are called Qotaimenjo, or Hall of Audiauoe. Tlie nortliern- 
most is tlie Jodan, or Upper Koom; while the other is the Gedan, 
or Lower Boom. They are brilliant with gilding, while the pictures 
of large pine trees aid in producing an impressive effect which must 
liave filled the minds of tliose received here by the Shoguu with a 
sense of his magnificence and power. Tlie metal oniAiiients con- 
sist of the Tokugawa crost and representations of the phoenix,

mats. Tlie court in front of tliese rooms was designed by Kobori 
Ensliu. Formerly not a single tree wss planted tliere in order ihat 
the view might be unolwtructed. Those now standing have lieen 
planted in recent years. The Third and Fourth Buildin^^s are con- 
nected by a large room of 50 mats called Sotetsu-uo-ma, or Room 
of the Sago Palm, so called from the paintings once here whidi 
became so badly damaged tliat they were removed. 

The Fourtli Building consists of six spacious rooms. The Upper 
Boom called Kuro Shoin, or Black Hall, has 24 mats. It is a 
gorgeously decorated reception-room with cheriy trees in full 
bloom upon a gold back ground. The tola) is a single keyaki board

Wlien Miyoshi Kiyotsma, a noted aoholar died, it is said iliat jast 
is the faneral prooession was orossiug the bridge,it was met by the 
son Joso who was returning from a jouiiiey to a distant plaoe. 
Surprised to learn whose funeral it was, he ordered the coffin to be 
set down in tlie middle of tlio bridge, while he jirayed to all the 
gods of whom he had ever lieard. The father was at ouoe restored 
to life and returned home witli the rejoicing friends. 
At the present tune superstitious people think it would be unlucky 
for a wedding procession to pass over the bridge, since it would be a 
sign that ere long the bride would be divorced and have to return 
to her parents. On the other hand people who lend things to 
others cross over the bridge as a means of insuring their return. 

Nishijin ^> the name given to the north western part of 
the city, north of lobijo and west of Horikawa. The name, 
which signifies Western Camp, arose from its being held during 
the 5jin war of tlie 15th century by the Westarn Army. A pasuliar 
fabric known as Niahijin^orif which is one of the most important 
productions of the city, is made in this section. There are nearly 
40UJ establishments and more than 34,000 weavers employed in 
its manufacture. Some of the houses have been in the business 
for more tlian tliree centuries. 

Shiramine Temple. This Sliinto temple of intermediate 
Kvxunpei rank is on Imadegawa and Asukai streets. It is dedicated 
to the spirits of the Emperors Sutoku (1124 — 1111) and Junnin 
(759 — 754). Formerly the Bmperor Sutoku was worsliiped at the 
Tonshoji Temple in the province of Siuuki, but in 180 i the Em- 
peror K5mei oixlered a slmue in imitation of that at Shimo-Ganio 
to be built in the present plaoe whither the sacred effigy was 
removed. In a similar manner the worship of the Emperor Junnin 
was in 1873 transfered hither from the province of Awaji. On the 
l6ih of August, which is the anniversary of Sutoku's death, the 
annual festival is held. 

Takeisa Temple. "^^^^ Sliinto temple is at tlie foot of 
Funaoka-yama, a hill south-west of Daitokuji. It is a bekkahu 
kuxmjM shrine (see under Toyokuui Jinslia), was built in 1800, 
and is dedicated to Oda Nobunaga. Fiom the top of tlie hill 
there is a beautiful view of the city. 

Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, and lyeyasu were three great generals who 
successively gained great militaxy power, each advancing to a higher 
stage tliat unification of the government and development of tlie 

udal system wliich foux^ tlieir perfection under the Tokugawa

1 DaitokujifM^Bo called Ryogyokn-zan,iBysitiiated in Murasakino, 
north-west of Kyoto ((ind a little over 3 miloB from Sanjo Bridget It 
is the principal temple of the Rinzai branoh of tlie Zea sect, and 
has over 200 subordinate temples. | It was founded in 1323 by 
Older of the Emperor Oodaigo who made it one of tlie Imperial 
temples and installed Daitokushi BIyocho as its first abbot Tlie 
temple was specially favored by the ex-Emperor Hanazono (1308 — 
.1318) and the Emperor Oodaigo (1319— 133d) who frequently in- 
vited the Abbot to the Palace for religious conversation. In the 
last part of tlie l6th century, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and other nobles 
were among its adlierents. Tliough tlie original buildings had 
been veiy magnificent, they were utterly destroyed by two con- 
flagrations ocouring in the middle of tlie I5tli century. All were 
rebuilt in 1473 by order of tlie Emperor Gdtsudiimikado. Until 
the time of tlie Restoration its abbots were trelated with special 
honor at the Imperial Palace. 

Hie grounds comprise about 27 acres. Being removed from the 
city and surrounded by a grove of large trees, they make a quiet 
and pleasant retreat There are several famous gates. The one 
f^ng soutli and called Chokushi-mon is tliat by which tlie Im- 
perial envoys entered. Having been origiiially a gate of the Palace, 
it was presented to tlie temple by tlie Empress Myojo (1G:)U — 10-13). 
Kara^mon was brought from tlie Momoyama Palace in Fusliimi by 
Hatakeyama Yoshitsuna who had received it from Hideyoslii. It is 
also called Higurashi-mon, the name implying tliat one might 
Spend tlie whole day examining tlie excellent carvings wliich ore 
attributed to Hidari Jingoro. In the upper stoiy of Sam-mon are 
images of Shaka, Anan, Kayo, and of the Sixteen Disciples. Tliis 
upper story is said to have been erected in 1539 by Senno Rikiu, a 
celebrated master of the tea^seremony who lived in Hideyoslii's 
time. Tlie painting was done by Hasegawa Toliaku. 

The Bntsuden, or Buddha Building, 57 ft by U ft, built in 1605, 
has a sitting image of Sliaka for its chief object of worship. A 
corridor leads to tlie Hatto, 09 ft. by 57 ft, which was built early in 
the 14th century by Akamatsu Enshin, burned down in 1453, and 
rebuilt by Inaba Masakatsu. 

Hojo, the residence of the abbot, is \)0 ft. by 51 ft, and was 

built in loco. The tablet on the outside is attributed to the 

Emperor Gotsuchimikado (1405 — 1500), and the one hanging 

iside, to tlie Emperor Godaigo (1319—1333). The chief image is 


a wootlAii eflgf of DAit5 Knknihi, the ^ fonndar* of tht tompW.

attraotiiig the most people; thongli the chief iutorest oeuters about 
the annual festival during the first four days of October, which is 
one of the most important held in Kyoto. 

Hirano Temple. '^>® groimds of this temple adjoin those of 
Kitano on tlie noiih-west. It is of superior Kvxmipei grade. When 
first built, in 704, it was at tlie foot of Kinugasa-yama, a hill near 
Kinlcaknji. Tlie time of its removal is not known. Tlie main 
shrine, erected in 1626, consists of two distinct structures placed 
side by side. On the left is a small slirine called Agata. In front 
of the main shrine is an omtoiy of peculiar construction. It is 
commonly known as tlie ** Oratory of Jointed Wood," because it is 
made of vanious kinds of wood fastened together. It is considered 
a model structure of its kind. The temple grounds include about 3 
acres. They are noted for Uieir olieiry-trees, to each of which is 
given its own poetical name. In the spring, and especially at 
night, crowds come to see the blossoms. In early summer the iris 
flowoi-8 in the toniplo-poiiil are also very attractive. The annual 
festival occurs April 2iid. 

Kinkakuji, whose proper name is Rokuonji, belongs to the 
Zen sect and is subordinate to Shokokuji. It is iu Kitayama-mura, 
noiih-west of Kyoto, and over 3 miles from Sanjo Bridge. It was a 
pleasure house of Saionji Kimitsugu. Near the close of the Lltli 
century Asliikaga Yosliimitsu, after abdicating tlie shogunate, retired 
to tills place wliore he nominally became a Budddist monk, though 
still Goiitiiming to guide the affairs of state. Ho iiuulo a beautiful 
gaiden containing a pond on whose bank he consti'ucted a jiavilion 
covered with gilding. Tlie place thus became known as Kinkakup 
no-Gosho, or Falace of the Gold Pavilion. After his death in 
1413 and in pursuance of his directions, the Shogun Yoshimoclii, 
his son, added otiier buikliugs. From destructive firas occurring iu 
tlie l5tli and IBtli centuries nothing but the pavilion and garden 
was saved. The present grounds have an area of 18 acres. 

The Hojo, where the abbot resides, was rebuilt in 1678. Its 
diief image is a sitting statue of Sho Kwauzeon made by Jocho. In 
the garden before it is a noted camellia tiee, while at the back is the 
famous Rikushn-no-matsu, or Land-boat Pine, which is trained in 
the sliape of a Japanese junk. In the Daishoin three rooms known 
as the Grape Room, Pine Room, and Banana Room, have pictures 
by Jakuchu. The first of these rooms was for tlie use of the Em- 
peror. On the east of Daishoin is Koshoin where ara sliowu a 
collection of antiquities and hanging pictures.

Tojl-in. ^^^ temple is situated in tlie village of tlie same 
name, at tlie eoutbem base of Kinnkasa-yama, and about four miles 
from Banjo Bridge. It is also called Mannen-zan. Founded in 
1639 by Afiliikaga TaJcauji, its first abbot was Mus5 Kokushi. In the 
building called Sbodo are seated images made of wood covered with 
lacquer, that represent nearly all the members of the Ashikaga 
family who held the position of Bhogun. All are reraesented as 
dressed in hariginu, or ceremonial court robes, witli peculiar hats 
such as were worn by officials, and holding in their hands a wooden 
tablet such as wae carried by nobles when in the presence of the 
Emperor, originally for the purpose of noting memoranda, but 
afterwards merely as a symbol. The difference in the size of tlie 
statues is intended to show the respective ages of the Slioguns. In 
the priests' apartments are many screens, including those represent 
ing tlie Twenty-four Obedient Children, painted by Kano Sanraku. 
Tliere are also hanging pictures by Kano Tan>'u and others. 

Historians liave painted the Ashikaga period in darkest colors. 
While there was abundant reason for doing tliis, it needs to be 
remembered that many writers were glad to use past occurrences for 
expressing what could not so safely be uttered concerning the 
events of their own times. Dr. Griffis in **The Mikado's Empire " 

**So utterly demorahzed is the national, political, and social life 
of this period believed to have been, that the Japanese people malte 
it the limbo of all. vanities. * * « * The satirist or writer aiming at 
contemporary folly, or at blundei*s and oppression of tlie Govern- 
ment, yet wisliing to avoid punishment and elude the censor, clotlies 
his characters in the garb and manners of this period." 

In 1862 and 1863 Kyoto was filled with r'Snin and other agitators 
who were seeking the overtlirow of tlie Sliogunate. Among oilier 
expressions of their sentiments, some of them on a night in April 
of the latter year took off tlie heads of some of these images which 
tliey placed in the dry bod of tlie Kamo River where it was custo- 
mary to pillory the heads of criminals. 

Ryuanji. '^^^^ temple, situated about a quarter of a mile east 
of Omuro, is also known as Daiun-zan. It belongs to the Binzai 
branoli of the Zen sect. Originally the country villa of Sadaijiu Sane- 
yoshi, it afterwards came into the possestfion of Hosokawa 
Katsumoto, who gave directions tliat after liis death it should be 
transformed into a temple.

made in imitation of the same number of holy places in the Island 
of Sliikoku. 

Myoshinji, &1bo oalled Shoho-zan, is in the village of Hana- 
aono, 4 miles west of Sanjo Bridge. Being one of the principal 
temples of the Binzai division of the Zen seot, it has about 3 )U ) 
others under its control. The grounds formorly belong )d to ^idai- 
jin KiyowaraNatsuno; but the ex-Emparor Hanazono, being very 
fond of the landscape, bought it for the erection of a summer palace. 
When afterwards he embraced the doctrines of the Zen sect he 
transformed the palace into a temple. Inviting Kwanzan Kokushi 
to be the abbot, he built for himself a new palace called Gyokulio- 
in. In 13J5 Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, displeased at Uie aid rendered 
to his enemies by the abbot, confiscated tlie temple grounds and 
destroyed all the buildings except the Bishoan and Oyokuho-in. 
Afterwanls those that had lioen thus destroyed were rebuilt. 
The temple grounds which liave an extent of 75 aaros, are surronmU 
ed by eiulhen walls. There are about -1 ) buildings. The main 
entrance to the grounds are tlie Nammon on the south and Hoku- 
mon on the north. Inside the former is the Sammon whicli was 
built in 1500, and lias in the second story images of Kwanuou, 
Daishi, ami others. The ceiling is decomteil with paintings 
of Howers. 

Tlie Butsuden, built in MS I, has an image of Slinka, accom- 
panied by those of Kayo and Anan, all carved by Kalmsei. Tlie 
four pines standing between this building and Sammon avo called 
the pine trees of the four divisions, refoiring to the four groups 
into which the subordiiiatu tomplos within the gi-ouUilH are dividod. 

Hatto, standing on tlie north side of the principal building, is 
73 ft. by 66 ft and was built in 1656. It is here tliat religious dis- 
courses are delivered and various ceremonies performed. The 
gorgeous dragon painted on the ceiling by Tanyu Hogen Morinobu 
is regarded as peerless. The bath-house called Akedii's Bath was 
built for the benefit of tlie soul of Akechi Mitsuliide who treadi- 
erously slew his master, Oda Nobunaga. 

Konroz5 is the name given to the depositoiy for the 6257 books 
forming the Buddhist canon. The tablet inscribed with the tliree 
diaracters of its name was written and preseuted by the Ehiiperor 
Fushimi (1238-1203). The copying of the books occupied twelve 
priests for eiglit years. 

Adjoining Hatto are Shinden, or Sloeping-room ; and the two 
Hojos. The Large Hojo, OUft. by 66ft, was rebuilt in 1651. The 




picinrm on tlie iktmim of the three front roomi mn pftinled by

On entering ilie gaiden and passing a bridge, a resting place is 
readied called Omadiiai by the side of the Onari Gate. The 
hillock facing it is called Sotetsu-yama, or Sago Palm Hill. Oros- 
sing on the stepping-stones, visitors are conducted to anotlier hil- 
lock wliere is tlie Yotsn-Koehikake-no-maohiai or the Bestin^-place 
with 4 Seats; thence to Shokintei, which is a house for tea-jNurties. 
A stone bridge to the east was constructed from a lai^ piece of 
granite brought by Kato Yoshiakifrom Shirakawa in the province of 
Iwaki, about 490 miles distant, while tlie two stones in front of 
the building are called Kotonoura. Shokintei ¥ra8 planned 
by Kobori Enshu a fkmous master of the tea-ceremony. A room 
called Yatsu-mado-no-seki, or Eight-windowed Room, is noted for 
excellence of design. The view from tlie front of the building is 
called Yoru-no-omo and is said to resemble that of Amauohashidate, 
one of the three most noted views of Japan. Walking along tlie 
pond, Hotaru-dani, or Fire-fly-valley, where firo-flies apiieai* earlier 
in the Boason than elsewhera, is reached; and beyond it is a house for 
tea-parties, called Shukwa-tei. A small moss-covered stone lantern 
on the way is called Suikei-no-toro, or Water-and-Firelly Lantern, 
because at evening tlie reflection of the light in the pond resembles 
a fire-dy. At the west side of the hillock, before a biiildin;^ called 
Enrindo, is a stone which was brought from Corea at the time of 
tlie invasion made at Hideyoshi's command. Pausing two stone 
bridges, there is another building known as Mutsu-mmbuioMJci, or 
Six-windowed Boom. A decoration on a wall under one of the 
windows is said to Im the oldoNt piece of velvet in Japan, having Ixxui 
brought from (Jliiua durhig the AHhikaga i>orio(l (1 l-lG ixiniiiriuH). 
A window called EuHliu-no-wasiiro-mado, ur Eiishu's Forgetting 
window, is so called because the builder forgot to finibh ii Passing 
the ponds of Ghushoin and Koslioin, visitors are conducted to

Hozukawa. West of Arashiyama, tlie river Oi cliaiigos its 
name to Hozukawa. It is lined with huge roukH ami ouurinous 
boulders among which the water ruslies with so imjiotuous a 
current tliat until Suminokura Byoi cut away the rocks and 
changed the course of the water it was not navigable. It is now 
passable only to boats of peculiar construction guided by the most 
skillful boatmen; for, in shooting with arrow-like velocity between 
the projecting rocks, a single mistake would prove disastrous. 
Visitors are recommended to take time for tliis exciting rido. In

Horinji, f^lso called Ohifukn-zan, is a little south of Togetsn 
Bridge. It was built by the Emperor Shomu in Td-l. Since the 
time of the abbot Dosho it lias belonged to the Shin'^on seot. The 
name of this abbot is by legend associated with the image of Koku- 
BO Bosatsu which is enshrined in the main building. Having spent 
one hundred days and nights shut up in tlie monastery performing 
the myptic rites of Koknzo, he, at the termination of iliis period, 
went out to draw water to be offered befoie the image. The May 
moon was just sinking behind the western hills, while Uie morning 
star appealed in the eastern f<ky. As he tuiiuxl the water into the 
|iail wliiuh ho hod U'onght, the light of tlie btoi- iuuicaMxl in bril. 
liaiioy, and, to the great suipi'ise of the abbot, he saw that the rays 
reileoted from the sleeve of his robe were ti-ansfoimed into the like- 
ness of Kokiizo. He could not rub off the stinugo ralleution 
wliicli remained there for several days. Becoguizing this as a 
manifestation of the deity tliat he liad been invoking, he carved an 
image of wood which he placed inside tlie larger statue where it 
still remains. 

^ est of the principal building is another containing an inm^'e of 
Daikokuten carved by Kobo Daishi. Hither on tlie lUth of Moixsh 
come biightly-dressed boys and girls to make wliat is called the 
*' Thirteenth-year Pilgi'image " from the age of tlioeo making it. 
In old times it is said tluit childi«n came when 12 years old to 
pray for wisdom, tlie next year to receive it, and on the third to 
give thanks for its bestowal. As ci'owds of other people come at 
the same time, the temple grounds present a Uvely appearance. 

XJmenomiya Jintha. This Shinto temple is of the inter- 
mediate giade of KtDompei It is at Nishi-Umezu, about a mile 
southeast of Araslii-yama ; and is dedicated to the God of Sake- 
brewing and to the deity who protects women in child-birth. The 
Empress Saga is also worshiped here. She was long without diild; 
but, in answer to her prayers offered at this shrine, was gi«ntcd a 
son. In hopes of securing an easy delivery, she placed uudur her 
bed some sand from this temple. In remembrance of this, women 
of the present day put some of the sand in their girdles. A small 
pond is full of haJcUsubata plants.

order of Sliuiokii Taislii in 580. Originally ilte grouudB were 
nearly half a mile square, but iliey are now reduced to I/5 of Uiat 
idle. Though the buildings and grounds are of little interest, the 
images and otlier treasures are rare speoimens of Japanese art. 

The wooden images of Kongo Bikidii, standing on eaoli side of 
the two-storied gate (Romon) were made tiy Toribusslii. Kari.Kondo 
has an image of Yakuslii-butsn. To the north is Kongodo contain- 
ing an image of Jizo oarved hy Kobo Daishi. In tlie center of Kobo is 
an image of Amida, having on the right liand side Kwannon and 
Jiso caned by Doslio Daisojo, while on the left are Kokuzo and the 
Thousand-handed Kwannon. A building dedicated to Hatano 
Kawakatsn having been burned in 818, tlie fragments of wood 
left after the conUagiution were need for a second edifice. When 
this was burned in ll&u the process was repeated, thus giving the 
Kodo now in existence. 

South of Kodo is Kami-Kyiioin, also called Taishido which 

contains a statue reprafionting Shotoku Taislii, carved by huuBolf 
when 1)3 years old. I^Vom ancient times it lias been ciiKtoiiiary to 
dotlie this image in a court dress of yellow siUc which is provided 
by tlie Imperial family and renewed whenever it becomes torn as 
also on years when there is a memorial festival in honor of Shotoku. 
On the east of tlie building stands a small shrine witli images of 
Kui-ehadori and Ayaliadori, two Chinese women who first instructed 
tlie Japanese in silk weaving. A stone lantern surrounded by a 
fence which stands at the front comer of tlie building is said to 
liave been made by Shotoku Taishi. 

Hakkakudo, or Octagonal Hall is in a teo-plantation about a 50 ft 
west of Taishitlo. The iiriiutiiial imago is of Amiibi, inndo by 
Sli5toku Taishi. The building is 12 J5 years old. 
A festival is observed on Oct I2tli. The treasures of the temple 
include a Biography of Shotoku Taishi with illustrations by Hata 
Chishin, a Biography of Noehoin illustrated by Tosa Yukinobu, 
and the so called " Constitution " containing seventeen aiticles 
comnosed by Shotoku Taishi and copied by the Shogun Ashiloiga 

Seiryoji. ^^is temple is also called Gotoi-zan, but is more 
commonly known as Sa^'O-no Shakadu. It is situated in Kami 
Saga, J miles north of Togetsu Bridge and over miles west of 
Sanjo Bridge. Though at first of the Shingon Sbot it was afterwards 
transferred to the Jodci and became subordinate to Cliiou-in. 

The main building 84ft. by 80ft was erected in 17u2. Tlie main 
object of worship is an image of Shaka, 5ft higli, said to have been

it an annual grant of 2JJ hoku of rioe. 

Ootaimenjo, A2 ti. by d6 ft, has its screens covered with gold 
leaf. In one of tlie rooms tlie ez-Emperor Qonda was aociifitotned 
to sit in full dress as he attended to aflairs of state. SUindeu lias on 
the gilt screens pictures of flowers tliat are supposed to luive been 
painted by Korin. A room in the eastern enil has an image of Qo 
Daison made hy Kobo Daishi To the east is Qoedo, (50 ft. hy 80ft 
having in tlie center an image of Kobo Daishi with those of the 
Emperors S^ga and Oonda in priestly robes. Still farther east is 
Yasuido which was formerly in the neighborhood of Yasui Kompira 
in the eastern pai-t of Kyoto. It contains imiges of tlie Emperor 
Qomlzunoo, of Fudo and of Knshojin, the latter carved by Ono 
Takainura. Tlie ceiling of Uie hall is in woAugata etyle and beauti- 
fully painted. Kuri at the western end of tlie temple ouclosiu-e 
was formerly a portal of the mansion of Mitsuliide in Vamasaki. 

Among the tieasures the most noted is a saci-ed book copied by 
the Emperor Saga (dlo — 323). 

Nison-ia is ii^ Kami-sa^za village at the foot of Mt Ogiira, 
about \ mile from Seiiyoji. From ancient times it has been noted 
for its maple tiees. On the hill in the rear is a small house called 
Shigure-tei, wliidi is known as the memorial of the poet Fujiwora 
Teika. In the same place the ex-E^iperor Saga during the Jowa 
period (:43-i-8i7) built temples called Nisonkyo-iu and Kwadaiji 
wliich fell into ruin, so remaining until Honen Shoiiin, built in 
their place the temple called Nison-in because of the 2 images of 
SliaJca and Amida that it contained. By the help of the Emperors 
Saga, Kameyama, and Qouda, the temple attained great prosperity. 
The buildings were destroyed during the Ojin War of tlie loth 
century and not restored for nearly 2 JO years. Tlie 25 acres once 

inoluded within tlie grounds aie now reduced to one tuutli of that 

The Hondo, constructed after the model of a Palace building, 
contains two statues of Buddha carved by Kasuga. The tablet hmigs- 
on its front lias an inscription written by the Emperor Qokashi- 
wabara (1501-152G). Daishido, containing the statue of Euko 
Daishi, is on a hill south of Hondo. Kokuseido, also in the same 
direction, is the ancestiul temple of the Takatsukasa family. As 
tlie wife of the Shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi belonged to that 
family, her tablet is in the neighboring Amidado. Horeido, on the

Kagi-ya. Tliera folIowR a steep olimb by a tea-houBO called Naka-ya 
on to another called Minaguohi-ya, both liaving ezoelleut views 
of the plain below. Near the summit a flight of stone steps leads to 
the Temple of White Clouds where are enslniued Izanami-no-Mikoto 
and Honomnsubi-no-Mikoto. This temple, whicli was built by the 
jiriest Keishun in 731, is, not withstand lug the steepness of the 
road, much frequented by pilgiims, as is tjstified by the well-known 
song **Seven times to Ise, tliree times to Kumano, but every month 
to Atago-yama." 

Visitors are recommended to return by the road which leads by 
tlie Tsukinowa Temple and the Higiuraslii Waterfall. The temple 
whidi was also founded by Keishun, lias for its chief object of 
worsliip an image of the Eleven-faoed Kwannon. It also contains 
statnes of the priests KOya and Shinran and of a noble named 
Kanezane who was a friend of Shinran. A oheiTy tree before the 
temple ia said to liave shed tears when SUinran left the place. Near 
by is the She-dragon Shrine. A dragon that lived near tlie 
Uigurashi Waterfall used to assume the shape of an old woman 
and come to hear the priest Kuya chant the Buddhist scriptures, but 
through their power it became a holobe or saint. In gratitude it 
caused clear water to issue from a rock as it does to the preseut 
day. The road leading along the stream coming from the Higuroshi 
Fall brings the ti-aveler back to the village of Kiyoiiki. 

Toga-nO-0. This, together with Makino-o end Taka-o, are 
known as " tlie tliree O's " of Kyoto, all being famous for their 
beautiful maple trees. They are situated near each other about 3 
miles north-west from the Sanjo Bridge. By many the Toga-no-o 
is regarded as the most attractive ; though Taka-o is better known. 
A clear stream called Kiyo-taki, or Clear Ciiscade, flows at the bottom 
of a valley tliat has on both sides of it great nmnl)ers of maple ti^ees, 
some of them of gitjat age, which grow so luxuriantly that, when 
the first frost of autiunn touches thoir leaves, the whole 
valley turns crimson. In places the river dashes against the rocks 
until white with foam; and then, suddenly oxpaiuliiig into a hn^tul 
pool, the quiet water becomes a mirror rellecting the beautiful 
scenery of the mountains. 

From beneath the maple branches the ** Bridge of Wliite Clouds " 
extends across the valley towards the Buddhist temple of KOzanji. 
There are two.favorite points from whijh to view the scenery. 
One is readied by going down the bank of the river on the north-

and near the temple of Saikoknji. Though small, it lias heen well- 
Imown from ancient times and lias been often alluded to in poems. 
In tlie lake is the Kikugasliima, or Island of Clirj'santliemums, 
also known as Tenjin Island from a temple dedicated to Tenjin tlmt

or Stone of the Oanlen Pond, that was placed thene long ago by Kose- 
no Kanaoka, the renowned artist Along tlie hanks of tlie lake are 
many clieiTy trees, whose blossoms attract visitore in tlie spring. 

Kami-Oamo (Upper Kamo). The proper designation of tliis 

Bliinto temple is Kamo-Wakeikazuclii Jinslia. It is iu Kami-Oamo 

Village on the road leading to Mt. Knrama. It is about 4 miles 

fiom San jo Brid(;e, and 1} miles from the companion shrine of 

Shimo-Oamo. Like tlmt it is of tlie kwanpei rank. Wal^ikazuclii- 

no-Mikoto is the chief deity worshiped. Tlie temple is said to have 

been founded in the same year as that of Shimo-Oamo ; though 

some ascribe it to the time of Jimmu Tenuo. It was at first 

located in Miaieiilio, about a furlong noitli-west of the site of the 

main shrine; but was removed in 677 to itii present position. 

Tliere are two principal huildings, the Ifoiiyu and Qomltn^ which 

were built in I^OU. Eodi is 27 ft. by Uft. with a height of 2A ft. 

Before them is the inner gate where people engage in worship. A 

Uttle lower is a two-storied gate with galleries extending from the 

two sides. In the latter is a picture of a horse-raoe held at the 

temple, and one representing the notewoilliy procession made 

hither in LsOH by tlie Emperor Komei.

Fnne-no Oknribi. Just after dark on the night of tlie I6ih 
of Angost, and at the same time that the fires of Daimonji are 
lighted, the hill behind the temple of Bhodenji in the village of 
NishiJouno presents a beautiful appearance. On tlie side of the 
hill there are exoavations wliioh form the outUne of a hoat Thm 
have been filled with brush-wood which is now lighted so that the 
form of tlie boat appears in lines of fire. 

The Shodenji Temple whidi belongs to the Zen sect, is not laiige; 
but its garden, as well as tlie hill beyond, has many maple trees 
whidh cause the spot to be much frequented in the autumn. ' 

Daitaixailt f^^o called Of use, is a high mountain at the northern 
extremity of the province of Yamashiro, and nearly 25 miles distant 
from Kyoto. A temple called Hojoji, belonging to the Tendai seot, 
was built in 1154 by Kiyomori. Half way up the stone steps lead- 
ing from the first portal to the main building is a Btoiie monument 
whidh mai'ks the family tomb of the priest SUunkwaa (See the 
description of Dangogatani.) After his exile, liis family escaped to 
this mountain where they concealed themselves in a place called 
Nuraeridani. The laiige trees growing near this monument inter- 
mingle their branches so that underneath them the middle of the 
day seems like twiliglit. 

Tlie mountain has many peculiar stones. Tliat known as the 

Milk Stone is in the valley about a mile noiih of the temple. It 
is smooth on the top, but underneath are fourteen small projections 
from each of which is said to exude a liquid that is supposed to 
possess medicinal qualities. 

The Takiya Waterfalls, two in number are in the village of 
Kuda, east of Daihizan. Each is about 50ft. high and JOft wide. 
The water fTtM into tlie Kuda River which flows into the province 
of Tamba. 

In the same village are three stone caves of consideiable size, 
whidi, from tlieir shape, seem to be remains of the ancient cave- 

Mt. Knrama, one of the most famous mountains in tlie 
vicinity of Kyoto, is 7} miles noith of San jo Bridge. The name, 
whidi means ** Saddled horse," is said by troditious to have boon 
given from the fact that the Emperor Temmu (673 — 030), when 
defeated in battle by Prince Otomo, retreated to this mountain at 
whose lase he left the saddled horse on which he had ridden. Tlie 
mountain abounds in old evei'green trees among which tlie sugi, or

detenniued tliat he would never euter tlie pi-iefttliood; but tbiit on 
attaining manhood he would avenge tlie wrongs whioh his family 
had suiTered. Though he fttudied the required books during the day 
lie slipped away from the temple every night to ptustioe with his 
swoidB. It was at this time that tlie taujti is said to liave taught 
him many tricks in fenoing whose practice in after yeai-s enable! 
him to attain great renown as a swordsman. At tlie age of 16 
he was able, through tlie aid of an iron meroliant who was 
among the worsliipers at tlie temple, to escape to tlie distant province 
of Mutsu where he was welcomed ly a powei-f ul noble and friend of 
his family. Six years later his brotlier Yoritomo rose in tlie 
province of Sagami against the Taira family. In the first battle he 
vras defeased and boi'ely escaped being taken prisoner. Yosliitsiuio 
now liastened to his In-otlior's aid, as did many of the old retainers 
of tlie family who liad been hiding in different jtlaces. Tlie large 
force sent against them by Kiyomori was so completely defeated that 
Yoritomo at once gained pos^eHsion of the eight uabtuni provinces. 
About the same time Yoshiuaka, another of the Minamoto 
family rose against the house of Taira and drove it from the capital. 
His victory was so brilliant and his power so iiresistible tliat he 
was called ''Geuentl of the Rising Sun." He, however, became so 
jealous of his superior, Yoritomo, tliat the latter was finally obliged 
to send Yosliitsune against him. A battle was fought in the 
province of Ojni where Yoshinaka fell and liis army was disbanded, 
wliile Yosliitsune, having entered Kyoto, diracted his eiieigies 
against ilie Taira soldiers in the western provinces. These he defeated 
in battle after battle until finally at Dau-iio-ura, near Shimonosoki 
tliey were almost entirely annihilated. Yosliitsune letuniod in 
triumph to await fuiHier orders from Yoritomo. Tlie latter, how- 
ever, had become jealous of his younger biotlier whom he treated 
witli great coldness. Benkei, the faithful vassal of Yosliitsune (See 
his story in connection with the description of the Bridges of 
Kyoto), interceded in vain for his master, and Yosliitsune again 
witlidrew to Mutsu. His foimer protector died soon after his ar. 
rival and the person who succeeded to the headship of the family 
showed but little friendliness. Yosliitsune was slain in a night 
attack; and his head, piosorvod in fuJce^ was sent to the brother whom 
he had raised to tlio height of power. Acuoidiiig to anotlior 
tradition, Yosliitsune with Benkei and a few other faithful vassals 
l!ed to Yezo, where he is still worsliiped by the Ainos. Soma believe 
tliat he escaped to Manchuria where he became known as tlie 
famous Tartar warrior Genghis Khan.

Jiun, the holders of that office have possessed the title viomekL The 
pictures on the screens were painted by Kaiio Tanyu and Kano 
Eitoku. In the rear of the temple are tlie trees and the slope of the 
mountain while towards the south-west there is an ezteiiHive and 
interesting view. Witliin the grounds are small shrines of Benzaiton 
and Temmangu. The beautiful garden was planned by Kobori 

ShSg^akuin Bikyu. This is a Summer Palace at the base of 
Mt Hiei, about 3 J miles from Saujo Bridge. It was planned by 
Tokugawa lyetsuna under the imperial order of Emperor 
Oomizunoo (1612-1629). 

The Palace consists of tliree distinct groups of buildings scattered 
among the rice-fields belonging to the Imperial Household.

Hiei-zaili or Mt Hiei, north-west of Kyoto, attains a height of 
27uu ft. above Uie level of the sea The usual ways of reaching it 
from Kyoto are by tlie Shhakawa Valley, by a road that ascends 
from the neighborhood of tlie Shugakuin Summer Palace, or by 
way of Yase. £^li involves some steep climbing. The Shirakawa 
route passes near some granite quarries and for a part of the way 
commands beautiful views of Lake Biwa. Tlie second road is the 
steepest and there are usually no hayo at Shugakuin for those who 
wish to ride. Jinrikislias requu^e about an hoiir from Kyoto 
to Yase where Kayo can bo obtained. lu returning one can go 
down the other side of the mountain to Sikamoto on the shores 
of Lake Biwa, and thence liy jinrikislia to Htsu. Formerly no 
women wera allowed to ascend the mountain and it is not many 
yeai's since stones could be seen beside the roads insci'ibed with the 
warning tliat they should go no f ui-ther. 

The mountain is rich in traditions and historical associations. 
When the Encperor Kwammu founded Kyoto he commanded a tem- 
ple to be built there in oixler that it might protect the new city from 
tlie maUgn influences that were supposed to como from the Demon's 
Gate, as the north-east point of the compass was called. The 
temple was allowed to take tlie name Enryaku wliijh was that of the 
current year-period. Tlie celebrated priest Saicho, otherwise 
known as Denkyo Daislii, was the founder and the first abbot. He 
was a native of the province of Omi, who fiom early years showed 
great zeal for study. Some years after establishing the Great 
Central Hall (Kompon Chudo) of tlie temple he went by Em^xiror 
Kwammu's order for study in China from wheuue he returned with 
the doctrines of the Tendai sect of which he became tlie Jaimnose 
founder. Successive Emperors became firm adherents of this sect 
and made this temple the first in tlie land, establishing the so-called 
Tliree Towers at whose heads they placed princes of the blood. 

The slopes and valleys of tlie mountain became filled with temples 
and monasteries; until there were said to be 3000 of them, though 
this is doubtless speaking only in round numbers and somewliat 
extravagantly. Here were trained many of tlie most noted priests

Under Hideyoshi tlie temples revived; and, with the establisliment 
of peace by the Tokiigawa Shoguns, they were onoe more placed 
under government protection. They never, however, attained to 
anything like their old prosperity, and Rince tlie overthrow of the 
Shogunate tliey have greatly deteriorated. One who wanders over 
the many paths tliat travei'se the mountain will often find some old 
building fast going to decay, or a heap of inibbish showing wliere 
one has fallen, wliile all over the mountain are stone walls and 
terraces tliat show where temples and monasteries once stood. A 
few of the edifices are still kept in repair. From them one can 
judge something of the ancient glories of the mountain. Kompon 
Cliudo is one of tlie oldest and renowned temples of the country. 
It contains many old records, pictures, and other ti^easures. 

Benkei, of whom an account was given in connection with the 
description of Gojo Bridge, spent considerable time on Mt. Hiei, one 
part being still known as Benkei's Yaahiki A spring of water, that 
he is said to have used for a bath, is called by his name. Kiyomori 
is also said to have batlied there while sufTeiing f rom a fever. On the 
side of the mountain between the two highest peaks is a long fuiTow- 
hke depression which tradition says was made by the bell that Benkei 
brought from Miidera (see description of that temple). 

The highest point of the mountain is called Shimei-ga-take, 
or tlie Peak Open on Four Sides. From it there is obtained one of 
the most beautiful views in Japan.

The Daimon (Oraat Gate), made of loByakit was originally the 
southern gate of tiie Falaoe. Its tablet was written by a Ohinaman 
named Ohosokii. Inside the gate on the noiih side is Kwannon-do 
containing an image of Kwaunon made by Oenso, a Ghinese 
Emperor of the IS 4yi><^ty* 

Hie Butsuden, 57 ft. by 61 ft, was built by Tokugawalyetsuna daring 
the Kwambun period (l661-167e). It is of heyaldt double-roofed, the 
rafters so anranged as to appear equi-distant even at the four oomers, 
and is regarded as one of the best speoimense of Japanese arohiteo- 
ture. The images of Shaka, Amida, and Miroku^ were made by 
Unkei, that of Sanzoho on their right is of Chinese origin, while 
the other three images on the left are also by UnkeL The pictures 
on tlie ceiling of Kwannon and a dragon were painted by Tanyu 
when he ?ra8 6S yeai-s old. The fountain assooiatdd with the name 
of the temple is south of this building. 

Back of Butsuden is Sluiriden where in a gilt sluine 3ft. high sliaped 
like a pagoda is said to be a tooth of Sliaka brouglu from Cliina by 
Tankai, third abbot of tlie temple. Acconling to the legend, when 
Sliaka died a swift-footed demon ran away with the tooth, but was 
compelled by tlie god Ida Ten to return it. Sixteen hundred years 
later the god presented to Doslien, a Chinese priest who afterwards 
gave it to Tankai. Tlie statue of Ida Ten is of Cliinoso workmanship, 
while tlie picture of a dragon painted on the coiling is by Kano 

Inside of the Karamon (;ate is Reimeiden, 72ft. by GUft built of 
hiniM in ISSL It contains the ihiU or tablets of the Eraiieiors, 
Empresses, and Imperial Piinces. Kaikwaido is made in the style of a 
Japanese fire-proof store house, and contains Buddhist images 
worshiped in past times by members of the Imperial family. 

Tofukuji. This Buddhist temple, slso called Euiohi-zan is 
situated south of the second bridge on the public road to Fushimi. 
It belongs to the Kinzai bianoh of the Zen sect; and was built in 
12oo by Kujo Miohinaga at tlie command of tiie Emperor Gof uka- 
kusa. It is one of the most famous places for maples, those in 
the temple grounds being called the Tsuten maples. The title 
which means ** Communicating with Heaven" properly belon^rs to 
a bridge which spans a gully lined by ilie trees. Tlie grounds, 
which include 46 acres, are entered by tliree gates opening from the 
Fushimi Road. There are 20 temple buildings witliin an inner

Inari Temple. '^^^ temple, Bitaated on Inariyama, is a 
Sliinto shrine of the superior Kwampei gi'ade. It is a little more 
Uian 8J miles from Banjo Bridge, on the east side of the Fashimi 
Bosd, and close by Uie Inari station of the Tokyo-Kobe Raiboad. 
As trains approach that station it may be noticed that a large 
proportion of the people in the third-slass, and sometimes those 
in the second-class, will rise, faoe the temple, and clap their hands 
loudly together, while they engap{e in prayer. 

Tliree deities named Ug», Snsanoo-no-Mikoto, 
and Oidiihime-no-Mikoto are worshiped. Tlie temple was first 
built in 711 upon the top of the liill where it is said that the 
Goddess of Bice manifested hersell It was removed to the present 
site in U38. There are two entrances from the Fushimi Boad; 
the more important being under the large red torii close to the rail, 
road station. Ascending a flight of steps, a large covered gate is 
reached having at its sides stone images of foxes. It is said that 
on account of tlie number of foxes frequenting this hill, tliese 
animals came to be considered the special messengers of the God- 
dess of Bice. Hence when damage is doue by foxes it is a common 
practice to write a letter of remonstrance to "Inarisama." It is 
said that sometimes when sacred fowls kept in the Ise temples 
were killed by foxes ; a fence was erected around the shrine at Inari 
so tliat worshipers could not approach; thus punishing the deity 
for not keeping the messengers under better discipline. 

The large building facing Uie gate is the oratory. Behind it, on 
slightly elevated ground, is tlio main building dOf i by a2ft., and 
37ft. high. 

It is constructed of hinoki wood painted red ; and was built by 
Hideyoshi in 1539. In a galleiy near by are some interesting 
pictures and ez-voio offerings. To the left of tlie main building a 
flight of stone steps leads to what is called the ** Upper Shrine." 
To the right of this is a path passing under a nunilier of small 
torii planted so thickly together that thoy ap^iear like a tunnel. At 
tlie end of this passage is a small slirine for the offering of light- 
ed candles. There are 13 more subordinate slirines scattered over 
the hill and connected by a winding path. A circuit of tliese slu-ines 
is called ^^Oyamamtgun.** "Circuit of the hill." It is sometimes 
spoken of as **JIoravieffuriy'* **Circuit of the caves" with reference to 
the fox-holes along the road. About lialf-way up the hill is a pretty 
tea-house with a view of Yodo Biver, Otoko-yama, Tenno-zan, and 
other hills to the soutli ; while Kyoto is seen upon tlie north.

East of the main building is an old heyaki tree (Planeoa Japonica) 
standing pn wliat is called Hatazuka or tlie Mound of Flags, where 
tiie Empiess Jingo is said to have buried the banners used in the 
invasion of Oorea^ 

Fnshimi* about 6 miles from Banjo Bridge, is connected with 
Kyoto by a highway with houses upon each side so that it has 
almost the appearance of being part of tlie same city. Before the 
town flows the faroad Yodo Biver, wliile in Uie rear is the Talsase 
Canal. There are 8,387 houses, and 16,224 inhabitants. The 
town extends about a mile from east to west and over 2^ miles from 
north to south. After Hideyoshi built here his famous palace of 
Homoyama; what had before been only a small village grew to be 
the second largest town in the province of Yamashiro. Before the 
.construction of railroads it was an important center ; since a large 
proportion of travelers comuig to Ky5to from the west took boats 
from Os^ika to FuHliimi. It is still allourifihing town. In addition 
to governmout buildiugs such as the County OfUce and District 
Court-house, there are barracks for a division of the Osalca garrison, 
the Fushimi Bank, and the buildings of the Fushimi Sokokwaisha 
(Storage Co.), and the Yodogawa Boat Co. The long bridge span- 
ning the river at the eastern end of the town is called Kwangetsn- 
kyo, or Moon-gazing Bridge, because of the beautiful sceneiy when 
the water is lighted by tlie moon. It is a favorite resort on siuii- 
mer and autumn evenings. The bridge is sometimes callwl Buugo- 
baslii from the fact tliat in feudal times a daimyo of the province of 
Bungo liad a mansion near ly. 

Momoyama, ^^ ^^^^ nortli-east of Fushimi is noted as the site 
of the magnificent palace of Hideyoshi to which reference lias 
frequently been made in other parts of this book. After Hide- 
yoshi's death it came into tlie possession of Tokugawa leyasu. 
During the contests between him and Isliida Mitsunori, it took fire 
and was greatly damaged. The buildings that escaped were re- 
moved, and many of tliem are still to be seen at the different 
temples in Kyoto. The whole hill is now covered with plum and 
peach trees whose blossoms attract crowds of people. Especially 
noted is Umedani, or Plum Volley, which is filled with plum trees 
as far as the eye can reach. 

The Tumulus of the Emperor Kwammu is in & v^ 

called Kashiwabara in the northwestern part of Momoyama. It is a 
large mound, crowned with a tree, and surrounded by neat fences 
and stone walls as in the case of the other Impeiial graves. The 
grounds have a circumference of 1672ft.

wanuno-Miohinaga was allowed to make it his residence; and 
atterward his son Yorimitsu lived here. Finally in 1052 it was 
made a Buddhist temple, with many magnificent huildings of 
which most were destroyed dnring the different civil ¥rar8. All the 
present huildings, except Hondo, Tsuriden, and the hell-tower, were 
hoilt in the Myoo period (1492—1500). 

Hoodo, or Fhoenix Hall, was built in 1052 hy Fujiwora-no- 
Yorimiolii. At the World's Columbian Fair in Ohicago a roproduo- 
tion of this temple was erected on a small island. The hall is 
intended to represent a phoenix descending from the sky ; tlie cor-

surrounded by a verandah 5 ft wide; wliile the comdors ou the 
right and left are 42 ft long and 12 ft wide. The secoud btoiy is 
12 ft square. The rear corridor is over GO It. long and 12 ft wide. 
The chief image is of Amida, 6 ft. high, and is siuToumlcd by 50

In the river before the temple is the Kame-ishi, or Turtle Bock, 
whidi is thought te resemble one of Uiose animals swimming in 
tlie water. 

Among tlie treasures of tlie temple are pictm-es of Sliaka by Kano

Mamupkuji, also called dbakn-san, is in Uji, 8 miles from 
Sanjo Bridge. It is the principal temple of the Obaku division of the 
Zen sect, and lias jurisdiction over 600 others. It was founded by a 
Cliinese monk named Ingen who, on first coming to Japan, 
took up his residence in Nagasaki. His wisdom and virtue 
caused his ropulAtion to sinieail until the ox-Kjii|)oror (lomixniUHi 
invited hi/n to Kyoto and iiiado him erect tluH tuiiiiilo whiuh was 
finished in iGOl. He made ovciything in ChineHc style so that, 
while witliin tlio preoiuutH of the laonaHiory, one inij^lit iniagino 
himself in tlie coimtry of its founder. In front is an extensive 
grove of phie trees, while in the rear and on the sides are tlie slopes 
of the mountain. 

The Sammon is a red gate 75ft. by 4dft., and 72ft. high. Within 
is a pond called Hojo-ike. A fii^ht of stairs loads to tlie Toimoden,

6Gft high, with double roofs. It is made of a Chinese wood called 
liftnon, and tlie ceiling is made in the style called jaixtra-yiUaj or 
"Dragon-belly scales." The principal object of worship is an 
image of Shaka accompanied by those of Anau and Kayo. A 
tablet inscribed with tlie characters Sl^* which is in the center of 
tlie building was presented by the pi-esent Emperor. 

To the north stands Hatto, Guft by 12(t, which was orip;inally 
the hall for preaching but is at pie&oiit the depository for a com- 
plete set of Buddhist scriptuies, and for the Gu,(JOU blocks from 
which it was printed. The cutting of these blodis and the printing 
were done by the abbot Tetsugau Zenshi. 

East of the Hatto is Hojo or the residence of the abbot Tlie

Tha Tomb of Tamnra Shogtin is about 8 dvi north of the 

Yamasliiua Station. When the famous general died in 811 he was 
buried with great honors. It is said that his body was plaoed in an 
erect position, with his face toward Kyoto; while with him were 
buried his armor, weapons, and some provisions, lliere is a popu- 
lar belief tlmt whenever some extraordinaiy event is about to occur 
in tlie country, a roaring* sound from the tomb gives warning of its 
ooming. In ancient times it was customaiy for generals about to 
start out on an expedition to first visit this place in order to pray 
for victory. In memoi-y of the general's illustrious doetbi during 
the reign of the Emjioror Kwammu, the tomb has recently been

Tamashina is a lar^e village midway between Kyoto and Qtsu. 
Being ho near the ancient capital it has mnny plmtos of liiHtoric 
notoriety. Among them there is still pointed out the house said 
to Imve been used by Oishi Yoshio, the celebrated leader of the 
Forty-seven Ronins. It is nearly opposite another historic build- 
ing known as Yokkojaya- ^ishi's house was formerly near the 
shrine of Iwaya Myojin in Nishi-no-yama. At present it contains 
only two of the original rooms, the entrance (yenkwan) and parlor 
(taMd) ; the rest of the building being new. Oishi is said to Imve 
lived there before stalling for Yedo. 

The stoiy of the Ronins has been given in connection with tlio 
Cemetery of the Onodera Family. Oishi Yoshio was the head of 
a family that had for generations held the inipoiiant olVioo of 
haiv (elder) in the house of the Lord of Ako. He was generous and 
courageous, but did not care for the details of etiquette. There 
were therefore few who appreciated hiiu, and even his master 
treated him coldly. He, seemed to care but little though men

Temman Temple of Nagaoka. i'l"» temple is in the 

Tilla;:e nt SliinkiMlari or as it is often calM, Kai<Un. It is t\ milaa 
west of the Mukomachi Htation. Tliia ph^a, aadently known aa 


NigaoJca, was the seat of the Imperial OoverHiiieut for a didrt time 
just before the founding of Ky5to. The temple is dedicated to 
Sugawara-no Miohizane, of whom an aojount has lieen given 
in conneetion with the description of Kltanu Temple. In his youth 
he was intimate with Ariwara-no Narihira, a noted poet who 
resided in the vicinity of Na^aoka where Michizane often visited 
him. At that time there was in Niigaoka a UaddUist temple of the 
Sliingon sect where the two friends often met to enjoy eash other's 
company ai^ the Leanties of nature. On his way to exile Miohi- 
sane visited this temple. Yubo, who was then its priest, was so 
grieved at the saga's misfortunes tlmt he aosompanied him into 
exile and, on his return home, received as a palling; present a 
picture whidli Michizane drew of himself. When, thrae years later, 
intelligence came of Uie exile's death, the pi'iest was amonj tliose 
who most sincerely bewailed his loss. He erected this temple, 
dedicated it to Michizane, and called it Temmaugu. 

In tlie gi'ounds, which comprise 1] acres, theie are 5 subordinate 
slirines. A pond near the temple has upon its banks many plum, 
dierxy, maple, and azalea trees ; aikl also mauy tea-houses. At all 
seasons of the year visitors find some attmctiou to this spot Like 
other Tonunan temples, a festival is held ou 25tli of each mouth. 
The annual festival occui-s Oct 0th when, among other exercises, 
tliere is an exliibition of wrestling. Ou March 25th, 1895, Uiere is 
to be a special service when a dish of rioe decorated with dowers is 
to bo offered at the shrine.

the famous warrior Kumagai, or Bensho Hoshi, who invited his 
master, Honen Slioniu, to be the first abbot, he himself takiug the 
second place. Formerly it was known as Nembutsu Sammai-iu; 
tlie dmuge of name being accounted for by tradition as follows: — 
From foai' Uiat the gi-ave of Honen Shouiu, which was in Chiou-in 
might be desecrated by his religious oppoueuts, the stone coHln 
was dug up and secretly buried near Koriuji in Uzumosa ; but a 
bright radiance issuing from tliat place pointed in the direction of 
Ao; hence the colfin was removed to this temple to which the 
Emperor gave the name "Komyo," meaning "Bright Light" The 
present grounds luve an aiea of over 10 acres. 

The chief image in the Emmado is a sitting statue of Honen 
Bhonin, which is said to have been carved by himself while ou the

stone which, being placed in her girdle, delayed the chlld'M birth until the comple- 
tion of her great enterprise. When the fleet reaohfd Oorea. the king of tint 
country was greatly alarmed, having never before known that there was any 
country beeides his own. Without any resistance, the Cbreans took an oatli tluit 
they would forever after be tributary to Japan. Kight ships laden with gold* 
silver, silk and other valuable artldee, together with eighty noble hoetages 
were sent to Japan as signa of this subminion. 

The Kminress's son, bom soon after her return to Japan, was QJIn who, being 
afterwards deiflod as the God of War. finally came lo be oonslderod as an 
incarnation of the Buddhist Uachlman. Tlie victories in Omreaare ascribed to 
his prenatal power. In the many temples erected to bis memory, Uiereare 
uaualy to be found pictures representing the Empress Jingo dreicd in armor, 
while with her is her venerable minister, Tskenouchl, who holds the young babe 
In his anna. 

During the Jokwan era (859-876) there lived in the province of 
Tamaio a Buddliist priest named Qyokyo who was a descendant, 
of Takenouohi He came to Otokoyama where lie built a temple 
which he called Iwashimizu Hachiman, there liaving formerly boon 
one named Iwashimizu. In 1309 the name was oliaii;{ed to Otoko- 
yama Hachiman. The main temple comprises two buildings called 
the Outer and the Inner Palace. It luis a frontage of about Gift 
and a depth of 40ft Between the Outer and Inner Palace is a 
famous cistern which is said to be made of pure gold. It is narrated 
that the noted Ishikawa Qoemou once lay for a long time concealed 
in this cistern. 

Ishikawa Goyemon is the famous robbber of whom many well-known tales 
are told; among atUem tliat of lils mounting by meaiw of a large kite on a windy 
night to the liummUof Ntigoya Ckuttlo In order to Hteal tliu plates of koM with 
which the omaiuoiits in itlinpe of f bheti were covered. When he wait arrciftc-d 
and brought to trial for his many oirencen, the Judge luilccd, " Did yoit force 
your way Intotliu palace of lIldRyOHliI and Mtcal thero-froin a guidon conMorT 
"Yes," replied Goyemnn, "and I liave aluo done many other 8uch duedn." "You 
are condemned to death," said tlie Judge. 'Hie robber, witli unmoved 
countenance, aald, "If I am Judged worthy of death, then wliat punbhment in to b« 
infltcted upon TOyotoral llideyoHlii himself ?" "Wluitdo you mean?" cried 
the astonished Judge. Goyemon replifnl, "No doubt I deserve desali for my crimes; 
but I am a small robber in cuuiiurison with the Regent llideyoshi who 
has stolen a whole country, and yet puts on the appearence of iHiing a grmt nmn." 
Goyemon was condemned to die by being plac^ in a caldron of Iwilini.' oil. Wluit 
are said to be the remains of thlH caldron are exhibited in the DaibuUu teniide 
at Nam. 

At the office of the temple, near the main building, pcriniHsicm 
may be obtained for seeing the oelelirated cistern. Tbe temple 
grounds occupy 38 acres, and include 15 subordinate shrines. At 
the right of the main entrance is a stable with the sacred hoi-se 
which feeds on tlie beans offered by worshipers. 

Tliere are many places of interest near the temple. A little east

Todo. "" ^1'^ >^^^ f^f tlw Mme name, in about S| milaa below 
Kopliimi, niilea from Kyoto, and % milaa from Tawaia. Ia 


feudal limes it was occnpied by the Inabi family, tlie site of whose 
castle oan still he seen. Formerly there were big wheels in the 
river which transmitted some of tlie water into the castle grounds. 
The town extends half a mile horn north to south, and a little 
less from east to west Though it has declined since the abolition 
of feudalism, it still contains 1416 houses, and 6,220 inhabitants. 

Love Mound (o^ Koidauka). In a village called Kami Toba, 
some distance south-west of the Kyoto Railroad Station is a 
famous mound in front of the temple gate of Nanjoji. Its name 
is derived from the following stoiy. A man named Endo Morito 
became enamored witli ilie beautiful Kesagogen, wife of Minamoto- 
no-Wataru. Failing to find means for carrying out his guilty 
desires, he threatened tlie wife's mother with death if site did not 
aid him. Kesagozen, on hearing this, thought that her refusal to 
be faithless to her husband would bring death to her mother. She 
therefore told her lover that she would yield to his wishes, pro- 
vided tliat he would first slay her husband. On the appointed 
evening she first pro|)ared an entertaiimieut for her husband whom 
she then caused to sleep in anotlier room, while she lay down in his 
accustomed place. At dead of night Morito stole into the house, 
slew his victim, and bore away the head, when he found to his 
horror that he luul murdeied Uie woman whom he loved. Entering 
a monasteiy he afterwards became the famous priest, Mon^^aku. 
He is said to have built tliis mound before retiring to Taluio. The 
stone monument was erected in 1647. 

Rokkakudo, ^^^^ called Chohoji, is situated on Bokkokn St., 
about 1 mile from Sanjo Bridge. Tlie first of the two names, 
which signifies Heiagonal Hall, arose from its sliape. It belongs 
to the Tendai sect, was founded in 587 by Shotoku Taishi, and is 
reckoned as No. Id of tlie 33 sacred places in the western provinces. 
The principal image, which represents Nioi Kwanzeon, is of gold 
and about 2 inches high. According to legentl, a bright light ap- 
peared off the coast of Iwaya-ura in tlie Island of Awaji. The 
villagers, in investigating the cause, drew out from the water a box 
from whence the illumination proceeded. On the lid was insoiilxHl 
'^fo the Emperor of Japan. An image of Empu Daiikiii." The 
image found inside was given into the care of Shotoku Taishi, who 
was so much pleased with it that he chose it for his g\ianlian, 
and built Bokkakudo for its preservation. After about 200 years, 
when the Emperor Kwammu was laying out his new capital, the 
temple was found to be just where tlie center of a street would como, 
and it was tlierefore removed 50 feet to the noiih, while tlie high-

Soshido, which contains images of Kichiren and Niohiju, was 
built in 1865. Before it is tlie well of Naltagawa which is considered 
one of the seven best wells in Kyoto. It is said that in olden timea 
there were three streams of water running through tlie dty from 
north to south. Two of these still exist as the Kamo and Katsura 
Rivers; but tlie tliird, whidi was called Kyogoku^wahasdisappeared. 
Some suppose tliat it may have been where is now tlie Teramaohi 
St., and have long since become subterranean. In confirmation of 
such a theory, the water in the well is said to be constantly flowing 
towards the south. Within tlio grounds of tho toniplo is the garden 
called Jojn-in. It is said Uiat tliis as also the ganlous at (lion and 
Kiyomizu were made by the poet Matsunaga Teitoku, the tliree 
being designated in the order above given the ''Gardens of Snow, 
Flowers, and Moon." 

A famous bell cast in 944, which originally belonged to the tem- 
ple of Dojoji in tlie province of Kii, was, after the burning of tliat 
temple, moved from place to place until in 1589 it was presente<l to 
Myunianji. Havin;^ Ixwii molted in tho Hit) of 1804 it was ro-cost 
in its original form. 

Honnoji. This temple, situated on Teramachi and Otihikoji, 
has jurisdiction over 220 others belonging to the Happou diviuiou 
of the Nidiiren sect Nichiryn, its founder, was the fouitl) abbot 
of Myokenji; but, liaving established the Happon division of the Beet 
to which he belonged, he built this temple in 1418. It was in tliis 
temple, Uien located on Aburanokoji, south of Bokkaku, that Oda 
Nobunoga was slain by his faithless subject Akochi Mitsuhide. 
Seven years later it was removed to Uie present site. Having been 
burned in 1864, tliere now remain only a temporary Hondo and 
tliree minor halls. The tomb of Nobuiiaga is marked by a stone 
monument made in five divisions. 

Among tlie treasures of the temple are on eating table of Chiuese 
workmanship, carved and decorated with gold; an old inoense jar 
with legs ill shape of frog's feet; representations of Sliaka's Sixteen 
Disciples by Clio Densu; relics of Nobunoga, etc

Sakarenffe, ^*^^ pmprrly called Anyd>, is a little sovlh of 
Takoyakushi Temple. It was founded in WW by a noted prim 


pained Eshin, at Taema in the provinoe of Yamatd, whenoe it wai 
removed to ihe present site, near tlie close of the 11th aentmy. 
T\ke .name which signifies Lotas-flower Upside^own, refers to an 
image which represents Amida as seated on sudi a liower. 

Nishiki-no-Tenjiil, situated at tlie eastern extremity of 
Niahiki-no-koji, contains a picture drawn ly Sugawara Michisaiie 
and left to his father Koreyoshi when the sage was about going into 
exile. The shrine was formerly connected with the Buddhist 
temple of Kwangikoji, the separation being made after the 
Restoration of 1863. 

Kwangikoji i^ ^^ principal temple of tlie Rokujo division of 
the Ji sect. It possesses what is called the "Rokuj5 Life of Ippen 
Shonin" (the founder of the sect) in 12 volumes, illustrated by 
Tosa En-i-hogen. 

Konrenji, on tlie nortliern side of the Sakaiza Theater, is the 
principal temple of tlie Sliijo division of tlie Ji sect, aikl has 25 
other temples under its jurisdiction. It was founded by Joa 
Slionin in 1506, tlie present building dating from 1825. The 
principal image, which is of Amida, was made by Gyoki Bosatsu. 
The image in Shakado, a temple to the soutliwe&t, is said to have 
been made from tlie same piece of wood as the one in the Shakado 
of Saga, and by the same person. The image in Bentendu, which 
is east of the front gate, was made by Kobo Daishi.

The origin of Japanese theaters is attributed to Kyoto whore 
in the Eiroku period (1558-1569) a person named Nagoya Sanzae- 
mon gathered boys and girls who could dance, in order tliat they 
might give tlieatrical entertainments on the grass-plot at Kitano.

TboM not familiar with the plaoe will find it of advantap;e to 
have with them some one who can point out tlie best views. Tliose 
who wish to see Hashidate thoroughly will olimb to the top of 
Nariai-zan and to Ojhi-toge. 

Monjn. About 5 ehl north-west of Miyazu, along the sea-ooast, 
is Niwatori-snlca. Thenoe passing Kataye-no-matsu and Rynto-no- 
matsu, both having fine views, one reaches the temple of Gotai-san 
Chionji with a gate called Ogon-kaku, or Gold I'avilion. Tlie 
principal building, erected about a thousand years ago, has an image 
of Monju Bosatsu. In ancient times there was a slurine to the 
Shinto deity Yosa; but it was changed to a Buddhist temple in the 
time of the Emperor Yomei (586—687). From here there is wliat 
is sometimes called tlie Ferry of Kireto, but the real ferry is from 
Monjo-mura. In front of the gate are tea-houpes which are mudi 
frequented by tliose who come to see the scenery. 

Seya-san Nariaiji, ^^ on a mountain is ch3 high at Fuclm- 
muia, north of Hashidate. It was built in the reign of the Em- 
peror Temmu (673 — 695); and contains an image of Slio Kwanzeou. 
The images of Nio in Niomon were made by Unkei, and Uie bell- 
tower was built by Hidari Jingoro. Half way up to the temple is a 
plaoe called Torin-no-chi, which efforts a beautiful view of EUishi- 

Oppama. Two ri east of Miyazu is a beadi (i or 7 cho long 
and one cho wide, covered with pure white sand, in which beautiful 
shells are sometimes found. Tlie mountain ranges of Echizen 
are visible in the distance, while near by are Kamurijima (Hat 
Island) and Kutsujima (Shoe Island). 

Komori Jinsha is ^ Shinto shrine at tlie base of Naiiai-san, 
about 10 cKo from Ejiri-mura at the northern end of Hashidate. The 
principal deity is said by some to be Izanagi-uo-Mikoto ; but others 
consider that the spirit of Hashidate is worshiped here. It can not 
be doubted that the shrine has been here from very ancient times. 
A tablet with tlie diaracters JE-'fk'SiiCKvt writteu by Ouo-uo- 
Tofa and anoUier by Sangi Sukemasa were given to the temple by 
Imxwrial order. Tlie grounds include only a little over an acre; but

ia thna deaerihed in Prof. Rein's excellent work on «The Indnatriea 
of Japan.*' 

^ Kanoko, Kanoko-aliihori, or Kanoko-slia-oliirimen, is the name 
of a peculiar, light, deeply winkled silk stuff whioli is used by 
Japanese women as a hair ornament or neck hand, made into ilie 
form of a roll with tassels at the ends. Kcmoho is tlie best material 
for both these purposes. It is usually dyed a beautiful red on 
violet color, with larger or smaller round white spots, regularly 
scattered over it in reticular form at intervals of one centimeter or 
more. It is made only in Kyoto, and in the following manner. 
Two breadths of a veiy light crape made in tlie province of Tango 
, are taken just aa they come from tlie loom, stiffened, and pasted 
togetlier witli I^haiori (sea-weed paste). Wlien dry, the pattoiii 
is drawn, usually strai^it linos crossing each otlier at riglit angles, 
then tlie material is nibbed tliorouglily with tlio hands to make it 
soft and pliant again. 'When tliis is done, tlie under-binding 
follows. For this process, a frame on which a brass hook is 
fastened ia commonly used. Tlie fal)ric is caught on tliis hook 
and pulled out, at each crossing of the lines in tlie design, and Uien 
bound fast undemeatli with several windings of hemp thread. 
This knotting of Kanoko-cliirimen is a tedious unpaying process, 
falling usually to old women and diildren. When the under-binding 
is finished, then follows the batli,and dyeing, diying, andstietching of 
the deeply wrinkled material. Tlie tlireo^ls used for under-binding 
become free and are pulled out, and the under-bound spots make a 
white pattern on Uie Turkish red, peadi-blossoin, or violet ground."

AS the himo, kakeOf and tBuyurhimo, were neoessary Appehd«0a8 to the 
onremonUl gurments of the time. The Buddhist priesta also uaed 
many saoh coidi and braids for their robei. When the Tokugawa 
dynasty oame into power, 800 feudal laxda soattered over Japan were 
required every year to make visits to the Shoguns. Their rivahy 
led to a great demand for these articles to adorn the dresses of them- 
selves and their reiainers. When in 1861 Prinoess Kazuno-miya 
went to Tedb to be married to tlie Shogun, the carriage in which 
she rode was made with cords whoae value was 10,000 ryo at nearly 
100,000 dollars. 

At present, silk cords are much used for the fastenings of the 
haori (upper garm9nt) and for the small belt, called o6i;tme, used by 
ladies for securing more tightly their faroad sashes. Silk is much 
need for weaving, for emfaroidoy, and also for fish-lines. 

The manufacture of silk strings for musical instruments is very 
ancient The Emperors Inkio (412 — i6'A\ Mommu (607-707), and 
Nimmyo (83 1 — 850) are all said to have been fond of the liarp and 
to have encouraged the making of strings. Tlie aamisen is a more 
modem instrument. It was first made by a blind man in the city of 
Sakai during the Tensho period (1131 — 1132). Although now made 
almost every where in Japan, tlie best instruments are made in Kyoto. 
A celebrated musical genius named Takemoto Gidayu invented a 
peculiar kind of aamiaeii string known asftUo-aao. 

Gold and silver threads are made by first pasting leaf gold or 
silver on thin paper, which is then cut into strips and twisted 
around strong tlnread. They are much used in weaving and em- 
broideiy. Both of them were profusely employed in Hideyoshi's 
time. Since tlien Kyoto is Uie only place in Japan whore they are 

During the Tempo period (1830 — 1844), when the industry was 
in its most fiourisliing condition, a union was established among 
the makers of silk tlueads and bi-aids. A branoh olfice was establish- 
ed in Tokyo where much braid was used in the decoration of 
swords. In 1883 a new union was established in place of the old, 
and again reorganized in 1803. 

Dyeing. ^^ connection with weaving, this industiy has lx)on 
carried on in Kyoto from early tunes; and tlie great skill thus 
acquired has led people of other localities, despairing of competition 
with the Kyoto dyers, to attribute the excellent results attained to 
the superior quality of the water in the Kamo River. Tlie celebrat. 
ed ynzen dyeing is only one branch of the trade. Besides the old

been known hy that name. In the Meiroki period (l6o5-l657) 
Chawanya Kifibei transmitted to Nonomura Ninsei the art practiced 
in Hisen of painting pictureB with gold upon porcelain. The 
wares prodnoed in Awata have been perfected by improving the 
6tren{«th and coloring as well as the decoration. Tliey have gained 
a good reputation both at home and in foraign lands. Hie factories 
are all clustered at the eastern end of Sanjo, on botli sides of Uie 
road leading to 0tsu. Three or four dififorent kinds of clay are used. 
The yellowisli glaze^s obtained by mixing equal parte of a pulverized 
^tone with ashes derived from the waste of the indigo plant. The 
work shops are well worth visiting. Kinkozan Sobei is the best 
known manufacturer. 

. KiyonwM imuv. Though ite origin is unknown, this ware doubtless 
aroee from tlie same source as tliat of Awata. At first it was mads 
in the village of Seikanji; but about the beginning of the 17th 
century the factories wei'e removed to the present place, Gojozaka, at 
the eastern cud of Goju. The coloring aiul painting witli gold wore 
teuglit by Chawanya Kiubeiand Nonomura Ninsei. The latter erected 
a pottery at Saimeizaka near by where he made specially f)ne ware. 
At the beginning of tlie present century, a man named Kumakiclii, 
who liad learned in Arite, Hizen, the seoiet of making stone porce- 
lain, returned to Kyoto where he introduced radical clianges in the 
metliods of making and painting the ware. Since the opening of 
Japan to foreign commerce still further improvements have been 
made and articles adapted to foreign taste produced. 

The names of the best known manufacturers are given in the 
Preliminary Information. 

Baku ware, Tliis was first introduced in the Eisei period (1504- 
1520) by a Chinaman (or Corean) who became naturalizeid and 

hved in Kyoto where he combined his original name Ameya with 
the Japanese Sokei. After his death he was succeeded in his busi- 
ness by his son Choyu, who was ordered by Hideyoshi in 1583 to 
make earthen-ware of a reddish black color after designs funiished 
by Rikiu, a famous teacher of the tea ceremonies. Hideyoshi was 
so pleased with the articles made tliat he gave Clioyu a seal with 
Uie diaracter f^ Kaku. Similar wares made since tliat time liave 
been marlied in tlie same way. Tliough not much expoiied, this 
pottery is much esteemed by some classes of Japanese.

ancient times with the principal metels, have showed wonderful 
ingenuity and taste in tlieir use. Tlie introduction of Buddhism

Laoqnar Ware. A« ii the ctm with many oilier aiioi«nt 
indoflfaiBi^ the origin of the mannfaotim of laoqner goode ia not 
doflnitefy known. It ii lald that in the leign of the Bmperor Koan 
(898-991 B, d) there li^ed a man oalled M ilamnino Solmne who ia 
oalled the faUMr of the cbuM of people who engegad in thia indutiy; 
but whether he himself eng*gsd in it or not it nnoertain. When 
Yamatotihe-no-Mikoto, the son of the Bmperor KeOco (71-180 A. D.^ 
wae on a hmiting expedition, lap^ iaaoing from the brandi of a tree 
that he had Irokanofl^ stained hie hand. On seeing the good ooating 
that it prodnoed, he staineed his implements wiUt it^ and thia is 

thought Iqr some to be the origin of its emplojment. Prot Bein 
says^ " As the Japanese owe all their other art industries to Ohina 
and Ooraa, we may be safe in oondading that the laoqner art also^ 
and probably the laoqner tree witli it beoame known to tlie Japanese 
from their western neiglibors jnst after the oommenoement of the 
8d oeniniy, or after their flrat oxpodition to 0(»t)a." In ilio roign of 
the Emperor Kutuku (0-15-051) au olUuo wiut oroatod to suporiuteikd 
the miJung of laoquer goods. Red lacquer was invented In ike 
reign of the Emperor Temmu (673-005), and tlie Emperor Mommu 
(697-707) ordered Uuit those making laoqner ware should put their 
names upon it. Tp encourage tlie planting of trees, he made the 
.sap aooeptable for the payment of taxes. Tlie industry made great 
advanoe during the first half of the 8th oentary, various modes of 
coloring as well as the use of gold and shells for inlaid work being 
adopted. In tlie rebellion raised by Masakado and Siunitomo 

during the reign of tlie Emperor Sujokn (1)31-046), the distiurbod 
state of the country greatly injured this as it did other industries. 
The luxurious habits of nobles living at the capital caused tlie trade 
to recover more quickly al Kyoto than elsewhere; and the artists 
were invited thence by wealthy men in other parts of tlie land.** 
When Yoritomo established the Shogunate at Kamakuia, many of 
tlie workers went there ; but the center of the industry continued to 
be in Kydto. Though it suffared much from tlie civil disturbances of 
succeeding centuries, it was greatly encouraged by the luxurious 
Shoguns of the Aahikaga, and Tokugawa dynasties. The ware forms 
one of the principal expoiis. 

The workers are divided into two classes; the nurimoiioshi oi 
nushiya] and tlie makieshL The former, who do the ground work and 
common lacquering, understand noUiing of tlie other operations, 
and seldom employ precious metals for decoration. The makieihi^ 
while able to do the more common work, are ohielly employed in

country. At different stages in its history it has been variously 
designated as ** Kyoto New English School" *<Kyoto Oirls' Factory " 
**Kyoto Oirls' Sdiool." The present name was adopted in 1888. Th 
objects of the school is to graduate healthy but refined women, 
with good moral habits and competent to meet all the duties 
pertaining to good house-wifery. Besides the Preparatory and Regular 
departments it has a Special Course, and wliat is called tlie Training 
Class. Tlie Preparatory Department admits the graduates of the 
Conmion Primary School and requires two years. Its graduates and 
girls who have finished two years work in a liigher primsiy school 
are admitted to the Begular Department where four years are required 
for graduation. The Special Course, comprising three years work, is 
for those unable to pursue all the studies of the Regular Depart- 
ment. The Musical Course gives one year's instruction in vocal and 
instrumental music.

Bleven-faoed Kwannon, whiok ia aaid to have been plolced np on the 
ahcoe near Oaaka, and always to be warm like living fle«h. FVom 
tlie 1st to the 12tli of Maroh a festival is lield wUioh is cifaserved in 
the same old-fashioned way that has been used since the foundation 
of the temple more than 1100 years ago. A prooession with torehes 
pasna through the oonridor wliidi is for tliis reason called the 

Doaoendiug from tliia temple tliere is another at tlie loft^ called 
SangiUsudo which is dedicated to tlie Threeeyed and Eiglit armed 
Kwannon. Tlie imagea of tliia and otlier deUios are veiy ancient 
and are well carved. The building is said to have been erected in 
758 and never to liave been repaired. 

Todaijii one of tlie principal temples of the Kegon sect, was 
founded in 723 ly Ityoben, at the command of the Emperoi' ShSmn. 
In it is enshrined tlie famous Daihatsu. 


IjigmA aajn that, Ryobenli mother having long been chlldlem, he wm bom In 
answer to praycn oflurod to Kwannon. When two yMurs old he wm placed by his 
mother uudur a nml berry tree In tfhlga In the provliicu of Oiul, whore he wum

be a leamd privet and the founder of TSdalJI. For uOyfarauOur losing him hie 
mother wondered here and th^fre calling out the name of Iicr eun. One day, while 
traveling by boat on the Yodo River the hoppcn«d to huur one of tuT ftiUuw-

called RyobciiHMgl which Is near the temiilo. 

The Daibulsu was erected liy the Emperor Shoinii. Tlie proparo-

which he removed his fatlier*! remains from the province of Bettso. 
It is said that the timbers of the thirteen^toried pagoda were broo^t 
from China, those which could not be taken into the junk Qying 
through the air. Another tradition says that KanuLtari withdrew

Totsuka or Amanohagiri Legend says tliat in the age of the gods 
Susanoo-no-Mikoto found an old man and woman weeping bitterly 
because e mammoth eight headed snake had already devoured seven 
of their daughters and would come that niglit to take the eiglitli and 
last When Susanoo-no-Mikoto asked if tliey would give him tlieir 
daughter for a wife in case he killed the monster, they gladly as- 
sented. He placed boIx in eight buckets, and when at night the snake 
became intoxicated therewith he flew upon it and cut it to pieces. 

The sword with which he did tliis is the Totsuka-no-tsurugi 
preserved in this temple, while in the tail of the snake was found
