    011 - Idol Found At Bottom of Well
          The Story of the Infant on the Chopping Block.  Once upon a time, an old
          man found a turtle caught in his net while fishing in the river.  Seeing
          its struggles, he took pity on it and decided to set it free.  In
          gratitude, the turtle invited the old man to a feast at his palace at
          the bottom of the river.
          Among the many delicacies there was a baby served on a kitchen chopping
          block.  The old man could not bring himself to eat it.  Instead, he hid
          the baby's body, brought it home and disposed of it in the well.
    012 - Drawing With Cryptic Symbols
          There is a peculiar pattern to the layout of the symbols.  Participants
          lay a finger on a marker placed on the board and ask a question; it is
          said that spirits cause the marker to move in response.  Usually the
          board is marked with the letters of the alphabet but instead, 26 cryptic
          symbols are inscribed here.

    022 - Recipe For Hanuda Noodles
          Hanuda Noodles: a local specialty.  Mention Hanuda, and these noodles
          instantly come to mind.  The chewy strands are unsurpassed in firmness
          and texture.  The broth, a delicate melange of sweetness and spiciness, 
          acts as the perfect compliment to the noodles.  How to prepare Hanuda
               1. Boil noodles for 3 minutes in a large pot of boiling water.
               2. Drain water and rinse noodles well in cold water.
               3. Place noodles in broth made of soup stock, chili, vinegar, sake,
                  and sugar.  Top with organic strawberry jam.  Serve with
                  seasonal fruits if desired.
    023 - Hanuda Town Hall News
          Issued June 1976.  Notification of repairs to Hanuda floodgates. In
          response to fears that future flooding of the Mana River may lead to
          extensive water damage, plans have been put in place to repair the 
          Hanuda sluice gate.  Work will start in September of 1976.

    026 - The Takeuchi Monographs: Notes on the Kajiro Family
          A Series of Self-Published Writings by a Local Historian.  This volume
          recounts the history of the Kajiros, a prominent family in Hanuda.
          Author:  Omihito Takeuchi of Hanuda, Misumi District.
          Published:  1971
          Until post-World War II agricultural land reforms lowered their status,
          the Kajiros were the wealthiest and the most powerful landowners in the
          village of Hanuda.  A study of ancient texts reveals accounts of their
          ancestors settling this area during the reign of Emperor Temmu circa
          late 7th century AD.  There are several accounts as to how the Kajiros
          came to prosper: some say that their acceptance of a god from distant
          shores granted them its blessings while others maintain that cursed by
          the new god, they gained its good graces through dutiful worship.  Those
          of the Kajiro clan are all long-lived, and periodically, one with the
          ability to see visions is born.  This is considered a holy sign, and
          the member receives special treatment.

          July 5th, Weather: Sunny
          Right at dusk, I saw a small, glowing light flying above Gojaku Peak.
          It's strange I saw it really clearly, but my friend didn't seem to 
          notice it at all.  I'm planning to go to Gojaku Peak tomorrow after
          school to investigate.

    030 - Legend of Yaobikuni
          This is the legend of a woman who lived for 800 years because she ate
          the flesh of a merman said to give everlasting life.  The woman remained
          forever young, never losing her beauty, and wandered the land dressed
          as a nun.  Records recounting the similar legends have been found in
          various parts of Japan.
    031 - Umi-Okuri
          A traditional ceremony in Hanuda dating back to ancient times.
          Participants clothe themselves in black and submerge themselves in the
          waters of the Mana River on the last day of the lunar calendar.  It is
          a purification ceremony symbolizing the cleansing of sin.  The ceremony
          following the Umi-Okuri is called the Umi-Gaeri.  The river was viewed
          as the border between the human world and the other world.
          The ceremony began as a way to wash away the stain of human sin and gain
          the favour of the gods.  Since antiquity, the other world has been
          depicted as a utopia of eternal life beyond the sea.

    034 - Villager's Diary
          June 2, 1966 - No one's caught on to that woman's true nature.  She is
          a monster.  She's been watching over the town for years and years, never
          ageing.  She's going to bring disaster upon this village; I'm sure of it.
    035 - Postcard Written by Yoriko Anno
          Dear Mom and Dad,
          Hi, it's me.  Sorry I left in the middle of the night.  I'm here in a
          tiny village assisting one of my professors with his research.  It's a
          very sensitive study so I can't tell you much about it but there's no
          need to worry about me!  
          I do have to say though, it's a very strange place.  Hardly anyone
          around.  Maybe that's just because it's out in the middle of nowhere?
    036 - Umi-Gaeri
          In a traditional ceremony dating back to ancient times, participants
          who had submerged themselves in the waters of the Mana River on the
          last day of the lunar year come back to land as the New Year dawns.
          They are considered to have received the blessings of the gods and been
          cleansed of sin in the other world, and are feted by the villagers on 
          their return.
    037 - Origins of Mizuhiruko Shrine
          Enshrined deity: Hiruko
          Origins:  Once, a boy was fetching water from the spring when a merman
          appeared before him.  When the child asked his name the merman replied
          "I am the god Hiruko.  Take this water and make from it wine and food
          then bring it before me."  The child relayed this to the other villagers
          and they did as the deity asked, building a shrine and providing him
          with many offerings.  
          Hiruko is the first born child of the gods Izanami and Izanagi, but
          because he was born with a deformity they built a boat of reeds and set
          him afloat on the ocean.  Legends telling of Hiruko's arrival with the
          tide exist in many parts of the country, but stories of this deity
          arriving via a spring are only told in Hanuda.
    038 - Misumi Daily Gazette
          July 31st, 1976 - Evening Edition.  Light Pillars Observed In Hanuda.
          Early on the morning of the 30th, mysterious pillars of light were
          spotted in the skies above the Mana River floodgates.  This is thought
          to be an example of the meteorological phenomenon known as "light
          pillars" or "sun pillars" caused by light reflecting off ice crystals
          in the atmosphere.
    039 - Dousojin Statue
          A statue carved in relief with a male and female figure.  Dousojin
          statues are usually placed at the borders of towns because they are
          believed to ward off sickness and evil spirits.  The Mana Cross has 
          been carved into this statue, again reflecting Hanuda's unique blend
          of religious beliefs.

          A local specialty product made from rare Misumi tin found in the mines
          of Hanuda.  The triangle's tone changes every time it is struck, making
          it a unique instrument, unlike any other triangle in the world.  However
          its uniqueness is also its drawback; its tonal inconsistency makes the
          triangle difficult to use during performances.

    044 - Premier Issue of Atlantis Magazine
          Atlantis: PREMIER ISSUE
          July 1976 Edition
          - Crossing the Boundaries of Reality -  The doors are open: Mysteries
          of the fourth dimension explained!! Don't miss it!!
          ... we can only conclude that it is the energy from exploding molecules
          in parallel dimensions that is creating the geometrically perfect
          mystery circle in ours.  Similarly the fact that powerful residual
          thoughts manifest themselves in our dimension as oracles and prophesies
          is already well established.
          ... furthermore we have obtained top-secret files which confirm that
          contact has officially been made (through channeling) on three separate
          occasions, although a major cover up has kept this truth from the public!
          ... These messages from another dimension are surely ultimatums from a
          superhuman pan-dimensional being.  The time is ripe for the doors of
          truth to be thrown wide open!
    045 - Fortune Paper From Mizuhiruko Shrine
          Overall luck: Excellent.  The warm rays of the spring sun are the gods
          smiling down on your.  That which you desire will be yours.  He whom you
          await shall appear in time.  That which was lost shall be found.  Accept
          your journey without fuss.  To profit in trade, be sure to sell.  Be
          confident in scholarly pursuits.  Victory is found in feuds and
          quarrels.  Haste is waste in affairs of the heart.  Illness will heal 
          slowly but surely.  Marriage will be blessed with a child.  Mizuhiruko
    046 - Tamon Takeuchi's Research Notes
          The fact that the people of this village in the middle of the mountains
          should worship Hiruko, the seafaring god, is extremely interesting.  How
          did the worship of a god usually favoured by peoples of the sea take
          root here, I wonder?
    047 - Note Left by Tomoko Maeda
          To: Mom and Dad
          I HATE you both!!!  I can't believe you read my diary!  I'll never
          forgive you!!  Just because I didn't do so well on my last exams doesn't
          mean you can do something like that!  I NEVER want to see you again!

          "Fish From The Sky"  Once upon a time, the village suffered a long
          drought, causing great famine.  Unexpectedly some peculiar fish fell out
          of the sky and landed in front of one of the starving village girls.  
          Unable to resist, she ate one of the fish.  As soon as the meat touched
          her lips, however, the sky darkened and thunder rang out.  To appease
          the gods, the girl prayed, promising to return the fish one by one, and
          thus she was granted their forgiveness.

          A version of a traditional myth as told in Hanuda.  Of great interest
          is the storyline, which varies greatly from versions found in other
          ancient records.
          When the god Ninigi descended from heaven, he fell in love with 
          Princess Konohana and asked her father, the god of Ohyamatsumi, for her
          hand in marriage.  Delighted, he sent with Konohana her sister, the
          Princess Iwanaga, whose name be tokened the permanence of mountains, in
          the hope that the marriage would yield long-lived offspring.  Seduced
          by the promise of everlasting life, Ninigi turned Konohana away and
          took Iwanaga as his bride instead.  
          But because he rejected Konohana, whose name promised the plentiful
          bounty of a flower's bloom, Ninigi's offspring were sealed in darkness,
          never to see the light of day.

          but her eyes were tinged with red.
          Since she did not speak their language, they could not figure out
          where she was from.  She cradled in her arms a box which appeared to be
          very important to her, because she never let it go.  It was said that

          A series of self-published writings by a local historian.  This volume
          examines the syncretism that shaped the village's unique religious
          beliefs.  Author: Omihito Takeuchi,  Published: 1973.
          This village has traditionally worshipped gods from worlds unknown, and
          it did not take long before the new religion merged with existing
          beliefs, with the combination taking root in Hanuda as a new belief.
          Fusing the two faiths was not difficult, particularly because the 
          villagers were already familiar with the doctrine of sacrificing self
          for the good of all.
          The worship of gods from afar can be traced back through the ages.  It
          is told that the inhabitants of this area have long considered the
          vicinity of the Mana Stone to be a holy place, using the stone as an
          altar for various offerings.  However, religious persecution and fusion
          with other beliefs led to the gradual disappearance of most of these
          practices from the public eye.
