yamanba 山姥 old mountain hag
In the morning of the 15th day of the first lunar month, the old mountain hag floats mochi 餅 rice cakes down the river.
If people eat these Mochi, they will be strong and healthy.
If the mountain hag makes Mochi on the 14th day, she uses a mortar and mallet made from 松 pine wood and thus the rice cakes have 松の香 a taste of pine.





................................................................................. Nagano 長野県

- folk belief -
Coming back from a funeral, people put the mortar and mallet outside the entrance of the home and hit the mortar two or three times.
After that they can go into the house.

飯田市 Iida city

kinugazuka 杵が塚 mount for the mallet
Once the grandfather of 餅屋 a mochi shop made a mistake and hit grandma so strong she fell into the mortar and died.
Grandfather was extremely sad. He burried the mortar and mallet together with grandma in a grave and planted a cherry tree on it.
Once there came a yamabushi 山伏 mountain priest and stayed at the mochi shop over night. He killed grandfather and fled with the money.
The neighbours felt sympathy for the old couple and burried grandfather in the same grave as grandma under the cherry tree.

. Japanese Legends - 伝説 民話 昔話 – ABC-List .


.......................................................................................... Fukuoka 福岡県
鞍手郡 Kurate district



In front of 地蔵堂 the Jizo Hall there is a huge rock.
Once a Kappa, who wanted to steal the horse of the Lord, was kicked by it and caught. He had to swear he would not do it again and write this on a piece of paper.
The paper was buried in the ground below this rock.



.......................................................................................... Nagano 長野県

カワランベ Kawaranbe, local name for Kappa
Near the river crossing in Kiso there was a Kappa coming out with a suribachi 擂鉢 mortar on his head.
A bit further downriver was a rock called abura-ishi アブラ石 "fat rock) and many people came here to kill themselves.
When they carved the feature of Jizo Bosatsu in the rock, people stopped coming.



.......................................................................................... Niigata 新潟県
北蒲原郡 Kita-Kanbara district

Villagers were much troubled by a Kappa pulling children into the river.
So they put a stone statue of Jizo near the river bank and prayed to it.
Since then the trouble stopped and people called the stone statue
河童地蔵 Kappa Jizo.



.......................................................................................... Oita 大分県
佐伯市 Saiki city

Once upon a time 金田家 the Kanada family had a Jizo statue in front of their home. This place had been a swamp, where Kappa and ghosts used to come out.
When they put up the Jizo statue and prayed to it, nothing bad happened any more. Jizo would hide the children under his robes if a wicked Kappa showed up.



.......................................................................................... Tottori 鳥取県

If there was a place with a lot of damage by a Kappa, people placed a stone statue of Jizo nearby and prayed to it.
Once a strong Samurai came past and killed the Kappa, later praying to it as Jizo. The statue was soon called
河童地蔵 Kappa Jizo.


.......................................................................................... Yamaguchi 山口県

The Kappa in the river often killed people, so the villagers caught it.
He had to promise not to do any more harm until the bottom of the stone Jizo would rot away.



.......................................................................................... Yamanashi 山梨県
下部町 Shimobe town

wankashibuchi 椀貸淵 "river pool for trays and bowls"
The お地蔵淵 Jizo River Pool is also called 巴淵 Tomoegafuchi.
At the bottom under a rock there lives a Kappa. If the villagers had a meeting with many people they came here to ask for trays and bowls.
Once they forgot to bring them back and Kappa got angry, never lending them any more.
