“Yamato Takerunomikoto” in Japanese mythology
(Hereafter Yamato Takeru)
Ancient Japanese royal family
Although he was young and excellent as a brave man, his personality was violent.
He has been good at martial arts since he was a child, he was smart and intuitive, and he was a beautiful boy, but he had a rough temper and was asked by his father to scold his brother, but he tore his limbs and killed him. It was.
Frightened by the violence, his father is afraid of Yamato Takeru and sends him on an expedition to defeat the hostile forces.
In fact, it is said that Yamato Takeru was supposed (wished) to die in the war.
At that time, He went to Kyushu (located in the south of Japan).
However, Yamato Takeru wins and returns.
Then my father immediately orders the 12 eastern countries to be subdued.
“Hitachinokuni (now Ibaraki Prefecture)” is one of the 12 countries.
No wonder he came to Ishioka City, Ibaraki Prefecture and sat down on this stone to rest.
he died at the age of 30 as a prince without becoming the emperor.
By the way, “Hitachinokunisoshagu” uses a chrysanthemum crest. (The chrysanthemum crest is the national emblem of Japan)
This painting is a work of cartoonist “Osamu Tezuka” Yamato Takeru in the Phoenix
“Osamu Tezuka (After World War II, a pioneer in manga expression, many famous manga artists were born from children who saw Tezuka Osamu’s manga, which is connected to the current Japanese animation.)”
When I was about to go home, there was a person who prayed and Guji (Chief priest) and Miko (Priestess) came out.
I have visited several times on a walk, but I haven’t met many.
