Tori-no-Machi and Shinto Miracles
"We nearly lost Tori-no-macbl. We
had made a note regarding it, but it
had been laid aside and forgotten. Call
ing November 8, upon a hinder to or
der some covers for Japanese books,
he stated that it would be necessary
for hira to see the books. Upon our
suggestion that he should come to the
houso .on the morrow, he apologized,
saying that we could hardly expect
him to come then, as he must go, be
ing a tradesman, to Tori-no-machi.
Upon our professing ignorance regard
ing that place and function, he remind
ed us that it was then and there that
he would get his kumade for the com
ing year. To further elucidate he went
at once and brought us the kumade
which had given him prosperity during
the year then ending. One glance at
it was enough. We decided that not
only he. but we would go to Tori-no-machi
on the morrow.
The word tori means bird. The fes
tival of Tori-no-machi Is celebrated at
bird shrines on the days of the bird in
November this year, the Pth and 21st.
The festival begins at midnight, and
ends 24 hours later. We were warned
that, if we wished to make photo
graphs, it would be well to be upon
the spot early, as the later hours of
the day would be too crowded for any
thing to be done. Long before we
reached the immediate neighborhood
of the shrine we met people with joy
ous faces, carrying their kumade for
the year. The kumade is a sj'mbollcal
object brought from the temple pre
cincts, which gives good luck in busi
ness enterprises through the succeed- J
ing year. A few steps more, and we
found ourselves actually in the midst
of the kumade trade a perfect net
work of narrow alleys and ways close
ly crowded on both sides with booths
filled from top to bottom with the most
brilliant and tawdry constructions of
card and iood and twisted straw.
The Favorite Kumade;
Here were kumade of all sizes and
prices, and different enough to meet
the demands of every taste. Trade
was In good blast, and the scene was
not only lively, but noisy Turning a
corner, we found ourselves facing the
Temple of the Bird, and hurried to
ward it in order to see the devotion
of the people before we gave further
attention to the talismans on sale. It
was a Shinto temple, but of those
which show the influence of Buddhism
in its details and arrangements. Just
before we reached it. we passed the
dancing platform found in connection
with all Shinto temples for kagura. A
kagura dancer was then performing
The music was supplied by three men
seated at the rear of the stage, dressed
in dull i;reen with pointed caps upon
their heads. Two of them beat drums
of differing forms, while a third
played upon a pipe or whistle. The
dancing girl was strikingly arrayed in
v. kite, red-edged. A purpie-blue upper
kimono. a great blue obi (belt) a white
rpron falling from her head and a
bread biue pendant behind. Upon her
lead she were a crown, from whicl'
itended three leafy bo.!ghs of the sa
cked sakake. Krom her neck hung a
u-red necklace made of long beadt,
:oj:id beads and the curious cla.v
ihaped magatama. Her face was
carefully powdered, and to every de-
iil of her dress minute attention had
en given. Wr n'ovements were sic"
r.r.ci graceful, the steps those of cere
monial dancing, handed down psrhap
t athanut-d for centuries. On a small

3ets wh:ch she would in turn use in
the dance A systruni ol bra?s was
held in the right hand, and at the mo
ment when v.e first saw l.er, a bourn
of sakake was in the left. These she
moved gracefully to the accompani
ment of iae dance. At a certain place
the braiiih ef rakako was laid down
and the gohei a red with curiously
c.:t pendant paper was taktn in its
place. This m turn was exchanged
for a sv.oid, and that for a fan.
People as they approached the altar
clapped their hands and bent their
uncovered heads in prayer They then
presed torward to throw money into
the contribution trough, and to hand
to the attendant priest o"erings lor

Itself, we found the altar loaded with
gifts rice cakes, vegetable products
of difTerent kinds, and things of value
that could be used to the advantage
ot the gctls. On both sides of tho altar
were great piles of mamori cr charms,
all of which r.o doubt wvre sold long
before the festival ended. Priests and
other venders of these charms were
seated just outside the temple. The

Having seen the temple and offer
ings and supplied ourselves with ma
mori, we were ready to look more
closely at the kumade in the booths.
Who can describe them? The word
kumade in its simplest moaning signi
fies a rake. The symbolism is, of
course, that with it one may rake in
fortune and wealth during the year.
But in most kumade the fact that it
is a rake which one has purchased Is
quite forgotten: while the rake is
there, it is generally so covered with
other symbolic objects that one may
easily forget it. Here, for instance, is
a booth which seems to display noth
ing but fans; but behind the fans is
the framework of the .simple rake.
These fans always have as their cen
tral decoration the mask or face of
the curious goddess Otafuku, or
L'zume the "abundant-happiness-woman."
She is always represented
with a narrow forehead, with two
spots of black, and with a broad face
and puffed out cheeks. The story runs
that on one occasion the sun goddess
was so offended that she took refuge
in a dark and dismal cave, the mouth
of which was closed, by a great rock
which no one could move. The other
gods for at that time there were no
humans were in despair. They de
vised various schemes for appeasing
the angered goddess. Finally, as part
of the arranged plan, Uzume danced.
It is suited that her dancing was far
from modest, but it pleased the spec
tators, who roared with laughter. This
piqued goddess, hearing bounds of joy,
and anxious to see what was going on,
slightly moved the closed rock and
looked out. Instantly a strong-armed

god seized the rock thus started, and

and the world's happiness was se
cured. Uzume is thus ever a symbol
of happiness, but on her fans there is
other symbolism; there are the two
great gods. Daikoku and Ebisu the
j there are the three happy plants the
plum, the pine, and the bamboo; there
' is the stork flying high in heaven.
and there is the mushroom "best of
foods," and intimately associated with
Uzume in the popular mind. With
such a kumade, who could fail to have
a prosperous year? But If one's taste
is otherwise, he has varied possibili
ties of choice.
In fact, it would be difficult to find
more striking examples of the symbol-
j ism in which Japan so much delights
! than in these kumade. Some of the
j more gaudy ones are a mass of
I strange figures which the novice

fthe present crowd that policemen
were stationed at every little tam

the cinematograph is all the rage, and
we were told that 30 moving picture

besides these, however, were circuses
and theaters, dancing performances
There was one show which made
but little outside clamor. But the mo
ment that we saw its placarding we
hurried to pay the entrance fee and
entered. It was an enclosure open to
the air of heaven; the brilliant lights
to which we had been accustomed
were lacking here; a few gas-jets em
phasized the darkness. There was
lurid light from two bonfires blazing
on the ground, over one of which a
great cajdron of water was boiling. A
fair crowd had gathered, perhaps 150
persons, really filling all the available
space for spectators. Beside a few
coolies who were assisting in the
preparation, the performers before us
were four white-robed priests of the
old religion. We were about to witness
the famous "miracles," once purely
religious possibly, now frequently a
show in which there still lingers s.
considerable amount of religious fer
vor and devotion. Percival Lowell, of
course, has described them adequate
ly, and many a less able writer has
described them since. There may be
an element of craft and deception in
the whole performance, but it is al
ways interesting, and we were glad of
our first opportunity to witness it.
First, is the sword ladder, the least
interesting of the four; the priest who
was to perform the miracle and an
assistant, after tedious preparation,
advanced to the front of the ladder,
which consisted of wooden sides, in
which were set six or seven sharp
swords. The audience had already had
demonstration of the sharpness of
the'ir edges; one sword had been passed
from hand to band, that all might see
and feel. With the assistant, the per
former engaged in earnest prayer, ac
companied by the strange finger-twisting
so characteristic of many oriental
ceremonies. At the close of all these
preparations the priest mounted the
ladder firmly, step by step, on the
sharp edges of the swords. Arrived
at the summit he called for a shell
trumpet, on which he blew a blast and
then descended. This act caused no
great enthusiasm, and indeed seemed
The next was more striking. The
priest was a gentle-faced, bearded,
long-haired enthusiast Stating to the
audience his purpose, be stood be
fore them on a platform and made
strange passes with his open bands
from his shoulders down the sides of
his trunk to his thighs; curious trem
ors passed through his body and
his fingers went through the strange
twistings. He then seized a large
needle and with the utmost delibera
tion thrust it through tho fleshy por
tion of his upper right arm. The act
would have been startling enough if it
had been done hurriedly; as it was,
the flesh of the spectators crept with
the deliberateness of the perform
ance. A second was thrust through
the same arm with the same delibera
tion; a third, was thrust through the
thick muscle of the left arm. and a
fourth; a fifth was thrust through the
lobe of the right ear. This was done
with not the least appearance of pain.
The performer then taking a candle in
the hand, walked around before the
audience and let them see the needles
in the flesh. It happened that we were
the first to whom he showed himself,
and there was no question of the re
ality of the performance. After he had
demonstrated the act to the whole au
dience he distributed a handful of
small needles to the spectators, wheth
er as souvenirs or charms, we do not
Meantime the assistants had been
piling wood under the caldron of boil
ing water. The performer this time
was a strong and healthy man, with
none of the air of dreamy abstraction
which had marked his predecessor.
Standing on the same platform before
the audience, he proceeded to make
some rotary movements with his open
hands. He too, played, with the fin-ger-twistings.
Meantime the water
had been thoroughly stirred prob
ably to demonstrate to the audience
that it was hot throughout the priest
then seized two great boughs, heavy
with leaves, and advanced to the cal
dron, from which the cover had been
removed; he was stripped to the
waist; dipping the boughs into the
thoroughly boiling liquid, he brought
out great quantities of it upon them
and splashed it thoroughly over his
head and shoulders, and upon his
chest and back. This he kept up ac
tively until two-thirds of the water,
certainly, had thus been used.
Public interest, however, was now
centered in the preparation for the next
and final act. the fire-walk. The as
sistants brought forward chips and
light kindling; this was carefully laid
over a space upon the ground some
Jour or five feet wide by perhaps 15
feet In length. j.asyv-Agy--
After thelvllole space had been cov
ered with this lighter stuff, heavier
kindling and small logs of firewood
were carefully placed. All was ther

boring fires thrown into every chink

hands, ran along the sides of the

was a roaring fire. When it was at
its height, two priests walked along It
throwing salt into the flames. We hasJ
expected that this would deaden ths
fire to a degree that only a bed oi
coals, and that smoldering, would be
left. On the contrary, while It tc
some degree reduced the flames, thf
fire was still blazing when prepara
tions were made for the culminating
act. Two priests girt up their gar
ments, made their prayers, and stood
ready for the moment Popular In
terest and excitement were at their
height. Suddenly, with a cry of ex
ultation the forward priest stepper
firmly into the fire and with raplu
step walked on the hot coals and
through the flames, the lull length oi

of his walk, the second gave the same
cry and followed him. Three time

worse at night and would not allow
me to sleep, or my wife either, and it
was completely undermining our
health. I lost fifty pounds in weight
and was almost out of my mind with

the irritation came, at work, on the

I would have to scratch it until I bad
