伊賀八幡宮の蓮の花Iga-hachimanguu Shrine
Japan

愛知県岡崎市伊賀町にある伊賀八幡宮の境内の蓮池。 この神社は、徳川家康公の5代前の先祖、松平親忠公が文明2年(1470年)創建した神社です。その後徳川幕府三代将軍家光公により境内が整備された折この蓮池が作られた。 蓮は泥池に咲く美しい花、泥を戦乱の地に例え、命を落とした兵たちの霊を慰め、そこを浄土の花で満たすという意味合いがあるということです。 蓮の花の見頃は7月上旬〜8月上旬ということですが、今年は7月いっぱいで終わりそうです。

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
