泰山府君祭 Taizan Fukun no Sai
TRANSLATION:
the Taizan Fukun (Lord Taizan) ceremony
APPEARANCE:
Taizan Fukun no Sai is one of the most secret and powerful onmyōdō rituals. It is jealously guarded by the few who know it, and strongly coveted by those who don't.
ORIGIN:
This spell was developed in ancient China by Taoist philosophers. It is named for Lord Taizan, the god of the mountain Taishan in Shandong, China and one of the kings of hell. He is one of the most important deities in Onmyōdō. In this ritual, the supplicant beseeches Lord Taizan, Great King Enma, and the other judges of Meido and Jigoku to lengthen a person's life span, save someone from death, or even restore life to the dead. Gold, silver, silk, saddled horses, and human life—usually substitutes in the form of katashiro, or paper dolls—are offered to the gods. No mantras or magical worlds are spoken; the gods are simply invited to sit down and participate. A formal letter of request is read to them, detailing the offerings and the virtues of the supplicants, and the precise divine intervention desired.
The Abe clan was famous for their knowledge of this spell. It is one of the reasons they were able to maintain a monopoly on the imperial Bureau of Onmyōdō. Under their offices, this spell was routinely performed for the emperors in order to increase their life spans and protect the country.
LEGENDS:
Abe no Seimei is particularly famous for his use of Taizan Fukun no Sai. He resurrected his father, who was murdered by Ashiya Dōman, and used it many other times in the service of the emperor and country.
Once, a high ranking monk of Mii-dera known as Chikō fell gravely ill. It was determined that his illness was the result of karma, and thus could not be cured with medicine. Abe no Seimei was summoned. He divined Chikō's fortune, and discovered that death was imminent. However, Abe no Seimei said that if someone was willing to trade life spans with Chikō, he could perform the Taizan Fukun no Sai and save the priest's life.
The priests all looked at each other uncomfortably. As much as they loved and admired Chikō, nobody was willing to sacrifice his own life in order to save him. Finally, a young man named Shōkū—an average pupil who had been studying for many years yet had never attracted the attention of Chikō or the other teachers—stepped forward and offered his own life.
Abe no Seimei accepted the offer. He immediately performed the Taizan Fukun no Sai. Shōkū writhed in anguish, his life span shrinking away, while Chikō rapidly began to recover. Finally, Chikō was cured, and Shōkū lay on death's door. As the young pupil's last breath left his body, he prayed with all his heart to a nearby painting of Fudō Myōō. Just then, tears poured from the painted eyes of Fudō Myōō, and the god's voice was heard:
"If you would take the place of your teacher, then let me take your place instead."
Suddenly, Shōkū and Chikō sat up, both of then restored to life.

- Legend of Mount Imakuma and 刈寄山 Mount Kariyoseyama in Oku-Tama -


source : toki.moo.jp/gaten..655..

The wife of 安閑天皇 Ankan Tenno (466 - 536), Empress 橘仲皇女 Tachibana no Nakatsu Himemiko, was lost and could not be found. Following a divination of the deities he went to pray at Mount Imakumasan and called out her name. And indeed, he found her. Since that time, the Shrine is famous for helping people to find lost ones and abducted children, by calling out the name of the missing.
yobawari yama 呼ばわり山
Not only humans, all kinds of missing or lost things can be found calling out the name of the item and waiting for an echo to come back.

At the back of the mountain shrine is a stone memorial 天狗の文字 for a Tengu - so maybe - it's this Tengu who abducts humans and takes away things, only to bring them back when called for it properly.
This story relates to the temple 正福寺 Shofuku-Ji and Saint Choin, who had come from 熊野本宮 Kumano Hongu, Wakayama
