      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

      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

      the baby's body, brought it home and disposed of it in the well.

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
      Noodles:

           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.

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.

      Right at dusk, I saw a small, glowing light flying above Gojaku Peak.

      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.

      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?
         Yoriko.


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.

042 - Hanuda Triangle

      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.

      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
      Shrine.


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?

      "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.

052 - Legend of Princess Konohana

      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.

      ... the two children of Shoichi Matori (age 42) were floating
      unconscious and would have drowned if it were not for a dramatic
      rescue attempt by schoolteacher Reiko Suzuki (age 27; nee Takato).

057 - Uryen

      Misumi Museum, Designed Cultural Artifact

      Cross-shaped clay figurines with armaments.  Length: Approx. 20cm.
      Origin:  Unknown.  Date:  Unknown.

      Estimated to have been made sometime during the Early to Middle
      Jomon periods (5000 - 1500 BC), the figurines are engraved with sword/
      shield designs, probably in the image of a war god.  They are thought
      to have been intended as offerings used in rituals to ensure success
      in battle.


058 - Idol Found in Buddhist Altar

      The idol, made out of a doll and fish bones, is surrounded by junk on
      the alter.  It is said that in the past, the villagers of Hanuda used
      the fish as a symbol for worship to avoid religious persecution.

      The heavy rainfall that has continued since early June has caused

      but her eyes were tinged with red.

      where she was from.  She cradled in her arms a box which appeared to be

080 - The Takeuchi Monographs - Sacred Beliefs of Hanuda

      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.
