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.

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.

Seduced by the promise of everlasting life, Ninigi turned Konohana away and took Iwanaga as his bride instead.

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. 081 - An Introduction to Hanuda Published by Hanuda Town Hall.
