hashiri Daikoku 走り大黒 / 波之利大黒天 running Daikoku Ten / walking Daikoku


The statue of Daikoku is at the temple hall 大黒堂 Daikoku-Do, Furarasan Shrine / Chūzen-ji
Next to a statue of the founder of Nikko 日光開山, Saint Shodo Shonin 勝道上人.
When Priest Shodo made the vow to climp mount Nantaisan, he saw Daikoku Ten walk over the waves of lake Chuzenjiko, telling him his vow will be granted.
This gave strenght to the priest to finish the steep and dangeroud climb.
. 勝道上人 Priest Saint Shodo Shonin .
There are various statues with this name in Nikko.

Daikoku Matsuri at 日光二荒山神社 Nikko Futarasan Shrine in June
At the Shrine Futarasan, as its deity Daikoku Ten may suggest, the legendary magic wishing hammer "Uchide no Kozuchi" is swung not only for good luck, but for safety in the household, prosperity in business and matchmaking. There is also a free market in the shrine grounds.

..............................................................................................................................................


Ashio no Daikoku Ten 足尾の大黒天



Every year 白ネズミ a white mouse came with an ear of rice. When Saint Shodo heard of this, he bound a white string around the leg of the mouse and let her go. He followed her to the hamlet of 足尾 Ashio, now using the spelling 足緒. The white mouse disappeared in a cave, which became a place of ascetic practises of Daikoku Ten and the Mouse.

The bridge 渡良瀬川橋梁 Narasegawa Kyoryo(大黒橋) Daikokubashi was also built there.

- quote -
Standing Guardian Deity of Temple Precincts (Garanshin 伽藍神)

Many are familiar with the name Hashiri Daikoku for this statue, but in recent years it has come to be understood as a generic protective deity of temple precincts (garanshin).
Such deities are called kannōshisha or kansaishisha in Japanese, terms that refer to divine envoys dispatched as guards or overseers. The dynamic posture and vivid facial expression are representative of the physicality of late-Kamakura-period sculpture.

大黒さま白ねずみ Daikoku Sama and the White Mouse

日光市足尾の地名の由来 The origin of the name Ashio in Nikko
昔々、
下野(しもつけ)の国のある所に、それは仲の良い爺さまと婆さまが住んでいた。2人はたいそう信心深く、朝な夕なに必ず畑の側の大黒さまに手を合わせていた。
ところが、
もうそろそろ稲が実を付けはじめる頃。ひどい嵐が吹いて、大黒さまの祠を吹き飛ばしてしまった。爺さまと婆さまは、畑の中に倒れた大黒さまをひとまず家に持ち帰り、大黒さまのために新しい祠を作ることにした。2人は嵐が吹いても吹き飛ばされない所がいいと考え、山の中腹の硬い岩盤をくり抜いて、その中に大黒さまを安置することにした。
爺さまは
ノミで硬い岩を削り、婆さまはモッコで石くずを運んだ。2人は昼も夜も休まず働き、その年の秋も終わろうという頃、とうとう祠は完成した。ところが、無理がたたったのか、爺さまと婆さまは腰を痛めてそれ以降寝込んでしまった。もう冬が近いというのに、2人の田んぼはまだ刈り入れを済ませておらず、村の中で1枚だけ稲穂をつけたままポツンと残っていた。
大黒様のお使いの白ねずみは、
この様子を見ると2人の田んぼから稲穂を1本くわえ、どこやら山の中へ走って行った。白ねずみが向かった先は、その頃日光の山々に道を開き、仏の道を広めていた1人の坊さまの所だった。坊さまは稲穂を持って来た白ねずみを不思議に思い、なにやら伝えたいことがあると見て、ねずみの足に目印の赤いひもを付けてその後をついていくことにした。
そして坊さまは、
白ねずみに導かれて爺さまと婆さまの家にやって来た。坊さまは、早速2人のために薬を作り、さらに茎が固くなった稲をガリガリと刈り、あっという間に刈り入れを済ませてしまった。
白ねずみの案内で
爺さまと婆さまを助けたこの坊さまは、日光開山の祖と言われる勝道上人(しょうどうしょうにん)だったそうな。そして、上人が白ねずみにひも(緒)をつけたことにちなんで、この地は足緒(足尾)と呼ばれるようになったという。

Legend knows this at Hashiri Daikoku in Nikko :
If someone is looking for a lost item and does not find it, he sticks a needle into the right leg of this running Daikoku and makes a vow.
Within a day he will find his lost item - or so they say.

While they performed the 大黒舞 Daikokumai dance and the seven gods of good luck had a party, a phoenix flew by.
He had an ear of rice in his beak and gave it to Daikokuten. Daikokuten planted this in the field and indeed, this year was hoosaku 豊作 a rich harvest.

Once the leader of a group of thieves was Tengubei. They went into the home of 左近丞 Sakon.
When Daikokuten hit the head of Tengubei, it slipped back into the body.
Ebisu Saburo swung his fishing rod and hit the nose of the thief きつね兵衛 Kitsunebei.
Hotei was practising Zazen and did not make a move.
The thieves run away in awe.
The 福の神 Gods of Good Luck held a banquet with music and dance.

大黒天 Daikokuten,寿老人 Jurojin, 福禄寿 Fukurokuju and 布袋和尚 priest Hotei Osho
Daikokuten, Jurojin and 福禄寿 Fukurokuju came along and Ebisu Saburo wanted to entertain them. He caught a tai 鯛 sea bream from a large plate.
When Daikokuten tapped on the ground with his kozuchi 小槌 auspicious hammer a lot of treasures appeared.
Finally priest Hotei came along. Daikokuten did 大黒舞 the Daikoku Dance and had a bout of 相撲 Sumo with Hotei.
Fukurokuji stamped his walking staff on the ground, grabed his uchiwa 団扇 handfan and did the dance 君が代 Kimigayo.
While they were thus busy dancing and enjoying themselves, the home of Sakon became very rich.

Once upon a time, someone asked Daikoku sama to HIRU some gold and silver for him. But Daikoku only dribbled stones to the man.
This is the origin of the proverb.

This ritual is held on the 8th day of the 4th lunar month.
The 御神体 Deity is transfered to the Shrine.
Young men from the village put a rope around Daikokuten and parade him around.
They hug 恵比須 Ebisu, throw him into the river and shout:
"Tell us, will there be a good harvest this year or not?"
The performer of Ebisu calls back:
"There will be a good harvest, so please get me out of here fast!"

Akashicho 明石町 Akashi district
Chuo ward, Kyōbashi Area (京橋地区), no sub-district



Fishermen from the town of 播磨国明石 Akashi in Harima no kuni (now 兵庫県 Hyogo) moved here. The Bay reminded them of home.
The Akashi district in Edo was rather small, on the East side of 明石橋 Akashibashi.
It also contained the districts of 十軒町 Jikkencho and 船松町二丁目 Funamatsucho, second sub-district.
Samurai and townspeople lived here side by side.
The story of the 47 Ronin from Harima is famous.
. Sengaku-ji and the 47 Ronin ( 忠臣蔵  Chushingura) .

In 1869, the area became 外国人居留地 open for foreigners to live.
Now there are many universities in the district.

Akashi District (明石郡 Akashi-gun) Hyogo
was a district in Hyōgo Prefecture. It was formed in 1879 from the territory of the Edo period Akashi Domain. The district ceased to exist on 10 January 1951, when its last remaining municipalities merged into Akashi city. The area that the district once covered is now within Akashi city and western Kobe city.
- - - - - History
At the beginning of the Meiji era, the Akashi Domain consisted of the town of Akashi and 144 villages. In July 1871 the feudal system of domains and provinces was abolished and Akashi Domain became Akashi Prefecture. In November of the same year Akashi Prefecture merged into Himeji Prefecture, and a few days later it changed its name into Shikama Prefecture. In August 1876 Shikama merged into Hyogo Prefecture. On 8 January 1879 the national law on districts, wards, towns and villages was put into effect in Hyogo Prefecture and the district of Akashi was formed. The district's administration was located in Akashi town. When a new law on towns and villages came into effect in April 1889, the towns and villages of Akashi District underwent various mergers to form the following twelve towns and villages: ...
.
Akashi is a city on Japan's Seto Inland Sea.
The ruins of Akashi Castle include 17th-century turrets, and surrounding Akashi Park is known for its spring cherry blossoms. Nearby, the Akashi City Museum of Culture displays prehistoric and Yayoi-period artifacts. The Akashi Municipal Planetarium has exhibits related to astronomy. East, the observation deck on the long Akashi Kaikyō Bridge overlooks Okura Beach.
