1 The Stone of the Tengu's Heel
Near the top of Mt. Shira at Inaba, Asahi-mura, Higashi Kasugai-gun, three is an old stone about three feet in diameter. It is called "Tengu no Kakato Iwa", the Stone of the Tengu's Heel.
On the surface of the stone there is a hollow in the shape of a heel of a big foot facing east. It is said that the Tengu who lived in this mountain in ancient days, intending to go one night to Mount Sarunage on an errand, stepped on this stone and jumped a big jump eastward, leaving his footprint on the stone. People say there is a Tengu still living on Mount Shira and that the Tengu's Fire is sometimes seen on dark, rainy nights.

2 The Tengu's Fire
There is a big pine tree at the Kita Kakai in Yamatomura, Nakajima-gun. It is said that Yamato Tekeru no Mikoto once put his sedge hat on this tree. The villagers often see a strange fire moving between this tree and the old cedar tree at Kumano Shrine in Kita Takai. This is said to be caused by the Tengu who has his residence on the tops of these two trees and comes and goes between them.

3 The Tengu's Pine
There was a big pine tree in the precincts of Shinmei Shrine at Kanesato, Tomita-mura. A Tengu lived there since ancient times. When he was in good humor, his laughter was heard throughout the village and the village was left in peace. But when he was offended, he did violence and frightened the villagers.
This tree fell down in a severe storm in 1921.

Once a courages wild man ventured out to get rid of this Iso-Tengu. He climbed up to a mountain where the was Iso-Tengu residing and indeed, saw a white smoke like a tornado fly around. In no time the man was wrapped up in the smoke and drawn far out on the sea.

This festival is held at the end of December and the beginning of January each year. People preyed for good crops in the coming year and spent the nights dancing round bonfires.
On day, after the festival was over,
Kousaku was cutting grass on a hillside when he heard the sound of wooden flutes. He realized that these must be the instruments of the mountain Tengu. He tried his best not to dance, fearfull of becoming enchanted. But finally the music took hold of him and he began to dance.
He didn't know how long he had danced for when a Tengu appeared behind him.
"Come dance with us"
said the birdman and flun what looked like a rope up the mountainside. A passageway appeared in the mountain and the Tengu led Kousaku through it. Inside the hill were many more Tengu and Kousaku danced with them to the sound of their flutes. The Tengu were delighted with his performance and rewarded him with rice cakes and tobacco.
One tengu tested Kousaku's bravery by taking him to a cliff and threatening to throw him down. When Kousaku showed no fear the birdman was impressed.
On their way back to the village,
at a place called Imadate Kousaku found a tall cedar tree and cut its branch. He handed over it talking, " Please give this branch to your Greatest Tengu in the Mt. Akiba".
The tengu replied that he was a good man and they wished to repay him by giving him some form of great power. Kousaku requested to have great strength. The Tengu cast their spells and then Kousaku was empowered with a giant's strength. He uprooted the tree and carried it back to the village.

- quote -
There was a man named Taichi TENGU. This man, some day, went to the mountain. The surroundings became darker and darker, and then a Tengu appeared and said, "I take you as a disciple, so come with me." Even though the man said, "No," he was taken away forcibly, and the Tengu said, "Fly." "I will die if I fly. I can‟t stand it," he said, and the Tengu said, "That‟s impossible. Since I am a Tengu, you can fly, too, so fly." Then, the Tengu showed him fly before him. "Fly, fly," being pushed at the back, the man flied and could fly. Then, with the Tengu, the man was being trained on how to fly that way and this way, he did not go home for a while.
Then, some time,
everyone went to the mountain, and the man was standing blue. "Where did you go?" "I, taken by the Tengu, was being trained everywhere. I can fly that way, fly this way, I can fly over anything." After hearing that, everyone said "That‟s ridiculous. Show us how you fly." He couldn't fly but was able to do something an ordinary person cannot do.
