kendoo 剣道 Kendo - 天狗 Tengu and The Way of the Sword

What is the connection between the sword and Daruma ?
During the Edo period, many "WAYS" were developed, based on the principles of Zen and practised by the samurai, and "The Way of the Warrior" (Bushido) was of course one of them. One aspect of Bushido is "The Way of the Sword" (Kendo) and the "Way of the Bow" (Kyuudo).

karasu to Tengu 烏と天狗 Crow and Tengu
『剣道独稽古』の最後は、烏と天狗による「手留」と「乱勝」の構えを示した絵図を紹介する。
Introducing two postures with a Tengu as partner.



まるで覆面レスラーのようであるが、足の爪だけは烏のようになっていて、地面を掴むように踏むのは武術の基本であり、奥義でもある。



剣の構えが実に古流らしくていい。肘の左右への張りも見事である。

宮城県 Miyagi, 伊具郡 Igu district 丸森町 Marumori

Tengu no hijutstu 天狗の秘術 Secret Teachings of Tengu
Once upon a time
at the home of 佐藤松吉 Sato Matsukichi there lived a young warrior called 理八 Rihachi.
The family was very poor and Rihachi was sent to work for the rich family of 小田 Oda in 館矢間村 Tateyamamura. From there he could take part in the Kendo training of 高木与惣兵衛 Takagi Yosoemon at the local training hall.
After three years, when Rihachi was 20 years old, there was no other student who could beat him. Yet the teacher did not promote him. Finally Rihachi understood he was not yet ready, pulled himself together and started anew to practise alone at a wild place called 万騎の峰, which the locals called "Tengu no Miya" 天狗の宮 "Palace of the Tengu".
On the mountain path there were dangerous wolves on the road and beautiful ladies trying to distract him and even severed human heads were flying around - but despite all these terrible things, Rihachi was undisturbed and continued his practise.
Finally on the 107th night at midnight the Tenug showed up and took him to the 天狗の角力場 Training place of the Tengu, where he was shown how to fly in space.
Later Rihachi himself was venerated as a 天狗尊 Tengu in the village and he opened a training hall for martial arts.
He became very famous and won many official competitions and got the name Riken 飛剣 "flying sword".

Yatsukooji 八つ小路 Yatsukoji district
"Eight corners", "Eight small roads", "Eight Streets"




On the Southern side of 筋違橋 Sujikaibashi was the 筋違橋御門 Sujikaimon gate and nearby the Yatsukoji district.
The local people also called it
八つ辻 Yatsu-tsuji or 八辻が原 Yatsujigahara.

The eight roads which met here are

01 - to the West to 昌平橋 Shoheibashi bridge
02 - to the South-West to 芋洗坂 Imoaraizaka slope
03 - to 駿河台 Surugadai
04 - to 三河町 Mikawacho
05 - to 連雀町 Renjakucho
06 - to 須田町 Sudacho 須田町
07 - over the river to 柳原土手 Yanagihara dote embankment
08 - to the 筋違橋御門 Sujikaimon gate

This has even become a stamp:



This print shows the Hirokoji leading from 筋違橋御門前 to 外堀(神田川) the Sotobori of the Kanda river. In the front is part of 筋違橋御門の櫓 the watch tower and in the far back part of 神田神社 Kanda Jinja.
It is at the beginning of the 中山道 Nakasendo along the Sotobori. Nearby is 昌平橋 Shoheibashi. Crossing the river leads to a road to Ueno, for the Shogun to visit 上野寛永寺 the graves at Kanei-Ji.
Since eight small roads come together here, the name was given to this district.

In the front is a 大名行列 Daimyo Gyoretsu, procession of a lord and his samurai warriors.

Edo Tokyo Hakubutsukan 江戸東京博物館 Edo-Tokyo Museum 
a museum of the history of Tokyo during the Edo period.
The Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum opened its doors in March 1993 as a space to reflect on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo and envision the city and life of the future. Housed in a unique building modeled after an elevated-floor type warehouse, the museum has been a landmark and popular tourist attraction in Tokyo since its opening.
The permanent exhibition,
showcasing original objects and replicas, offers visitors a journey through the 400-year history of Edo-Tokyo since Tokugawa Ieyasu entered Edo. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum holds special exhibitions at the first floor gallery five to six times a year and carries out various other events, including lectures and workshops on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo.
