Architecture in the Heian Period
James T. Ulak
In 784 the emperor Kammu (737–806) relocated the seat of government to Nagaoka. Nagaoka was marred by contention and assassination, however, rendering it an inauspicious location for the capital. Thus, in 794 a site to the east of Nagaoka on a plain sheltered on the west, north, and east by mountains and intersected by ample north-south rivers was judged appropriate by geomancers. Named Heian-kyō (“Capital of Peace and Tranquility”) and later known as Kyōto, this city was modeled on the grid pattern of the Tang Chinese capital at Chang’an. Heian-kyō remained the site of the imperial residence . . . (100 of 10,500 words)

On 4 December 794 (8 Shimotsuki, 13th year of Enryaku), at the time of the christening of Heian-kyō, because of the resultant scenic beauty when Emperor Kammu made his castle utilizing the natural surroundings, the shiro was finally changed to “castle” (山城国).

at temple Miidera, Shiga, Otsu.

He was an old priest taking care of Miidera until priest 智証大師 Chisho Daishi came to the temple.
In the Kyotaido Hall in honor of Kyotai there is a statue of the priest.



After Chisho's arrival, Kyotai went into a cave and did not come out again.
Later Chisho Daishi put up a stone memorial on the cave.

Since olden times, people who come here to become a monk have their hair cut and offer it on the altar of this hall.

cult of immortality 神仙思想
A philosophical perspective in ancient China, which developed from a combination of Taoism with the doctrine of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements. It was a cult of longevity and eternal life, and those who obtained these goals were called Sages thought to live on special islands.
In China, gardens symbolizing this cosmological view were built in the Qin and Han dynasties, and in Japan as well, gardens influenced by this perspective were made in the Asuka and Nara periods.
Hōrai and crane-and-tortoise gardens, popular in the Momoyama and Edo periods, were also based in part on this philosophy.

神仙説【しんせんせつ】 shinsen setsu
中国の古い神話に由来し,戦国時代に興り,秦・漢代に流行し,魏晋時代に頂点に達した神秘的思想。神仙は人間の現実的欲望の実現者であり,不老不死であるとする。神仙となるために,修行や服薬の法があり,その方法をめぐって,道教と習合した。

中国で
生死を超脱した存在の可能性を考える思想。神仙説の萌芽は戦国時代(前3世紀)に認められる。たとえば《荘子》には風を吸い露を飲み,雲気に乗って飛竜を御する藐姑射(はこや)の山の神人や踵(きびす)をもって呼吸する真人などのイメージがえがかれ,《楚辞》には神仙との遊行がうたわれている。神仙説をとくに鼓吹したのは東方沿海地域の方士たちであって,東海中に神仙の住まう三神山が存在すると説き,三神山の信仰は秦の始皇帝や漢の武帝にもうけつがれた。

- - - - - - A legend from China
In 秦州 Shinshu in China a man walked alone at night, suddenly found himself surrounded by smoke and standing on the top of the mountain. There he met many people having a party, drinking and enjoying music. When he later tried to get up on the mountain again to steal their wealth, there was nothing to be seen.
It must have been the effect of the Shinsen or maybe some Tengu.


Sorori 蘇呂里 Sorori,shinsen no jutsu 神仙の術
Sorori was a Samurai from Mikawa (eastern Aichi) who was close to 豊臣秀吉 Toyotomi Hideyoshi.
Sorori later lived in a mountain retreat and practised the way of a Shinsen, until he was able to fly freely in the sky.

Sorori Shinzaemon and Hideyoshi
by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi

- - - - - Sorori Sugimoto Shinzaemon
The second unifier of Japan, Hideyoshi, was tricked into giving more than he bargained for by Sorori (Sugimoto Shinzaemon), a scabbard maker whose great wit and humor enabled him to become “a kind of buffoon to Hideyoshi” and the only named Japanese court jester in the available records.
... Hideyoshi asked Sorori what recompense he wished. He replied, "A paper bag full of rice." Hideyoshi, pleased with his moderation, promised him what he desired. However, several days later, Sorori arrived dragging after him an enormous paper bag, which he put over a great barn. Hideyoshi was much amused, and asked Sorori to celebrate the matter in a verse.

China - The Eight Immortals 八仙 Pa Hsien

- quote -



He Xian Gu (何仙姑; pinyin: Hé Xiān Gū) - 何仙姑(かせんこ)Kasenko
The Immortal Woman
He Xian Gu’s immortality is due to a consistent diet of powdered mother-of-pearl and moonbeams. While swallowing it, she vowed to remain a virgin.

She is attributed by the lotus/lotus pond, which can cultivate people through meditation.

The Royal Uncle Cao
Cao Gou Jiu is reputed to have been the brother of a 10th century Song Empress, the uncle to the Emperor of the Song Dynasty and the son of a military commander. His attribute, the castanets, are thought to be derived from the pass that gave him free access to the palace, a benefit of his rank.
He is also attributed with a jade tablet, which can purify the air.
According to another version, Cao Guo Jiu's younger brother Cao Jingzhi was a bully, but no one dared to prosecute him because of his powerful connections, not even after he killed a person. Royal Uncle Cao was so overwhelmed by sadness and shame on his brother that he resigned his office and left home.
He is represented by wearing formal court dress, always the finest dress among all Eight Immortals, and carrying castanets.

Once, while his spirit was gone from his body, a disciple decided that Li Tie Guai was dead and burned his body as was traditional. When Li Tie Guai’s soul returned from its travels, he was forced to enter the body of a beggar.

- quote -
The Eight Immortals 八仙 are a group of legendary xian ("immortals") in Chinese mythology.
Each immortal's power can be transferred to a power tool (法器) that can bestow life or destroy evil. Together, these eight tools are called the "Covert Eight Immortals" (暗八仙). Most of them are said to have been born in the Tang or Song dynasty. They are revered by the Taoists and are also a popular element in the secular Chinese culture. They are said to live on a group of five islands in the Bohai Sea, which includes Penglai Mountain-Island.

Kinko - Qin Gao (Kinkô sennin) 琴高仙人 Kinko Sennin
Kinko, who lived beside a river and was a painter of fish.
One day a giant carp offered to take him for a ride into the realm of the immortals. He returned after a month, telling his followers never to kill another fish. He then jumped into the river, where he was transformed into a carp himself. Kinko is usually shown reading a Taoist scroll while riding on the back of the magical fish.
