Continued from Part 2







In some upcoming entries, we’ll take a look at more of the history of and the influence of this legend. The next story will follow Onamuji again. Unlike the happy story of his encounter with the White Hare, this one won’t be as fluffy, and you can start reading that here.

Read about the origins of Kunibiki and the effects of it today in a couple of very info-heavy and nerdy entries. Plus, there’s also Ou-no-Mori, what’s left of the forest made by his rake.

(Note: This is local mythology that fits in alongside the Shinto legends known throughout the country, but it was recorded in the Izumo-no-Kuni-Fudoki (Chronicles of Ancient Izumo, 713-733 AD) as opposed to the Kojiki (711-712 AD) or Nihonshoki (720 AD).)
