Waterfalles named "Fudo no Taki" 不動の滝

An impressive waterfall is considered the personification of Fudo, for example the Great Waterfall at Nachi, about which I wrote in the story about
Kumano.

Takamori Fudo Waterfall



高さ50m、幅10m余りで、規模の大きさといい、周囲の谷間も広く、雄大な景観は実に素晴らしい。  若芽萌える春に、夏の涼を求めるに、秋の紅葉に、又、冬は全面結氷して、巨大な氷岩となり、四季を通じて訪れる人が多い。長野県自然百選の一つである。

Spirit-king of the waterfall



鳥山石燕『今昔百鬼拾遺』 Illustration by Toriyama Sekien
諸国の滝つぼよりあらはるると云 青竜疏に一切の鬼魅諸障を伏すと云々

There are many waterfalls in Japan, where this Yokai appears..
One is mentioned in the 青竜疏 Blue Dragon Commentary by Saicho.
It is not really a Yokai, but seems to be Fudo Myo-O himself.

. Saicho, Dengyo Daishi 最澄 伝教大師 .
(766 - 822) - established the Tendai Sect.


Another legend knows this as its origin:
Once the priest 相応和尚 So-o of the temple 葛川息障明王院 Katsuragawa Sokusho Myo-O In Myo-O In in Shiga found a 霊木 divine tree in the waterfall basin and carved this statue of Fudo Myo-O out of it.

. 建立大師相応和尚 Konryu Daishi So-O Kasho .
(833 - 918)
and the Katsuragawa 葛川息障明王院 Katsuragawa Sokusho Myo-O In



The statue of Fudo is a secret statue and only shown on the 28th day of the 8th month.

There is a legend of the water fall.

After Revolt of Hogen Heiji( 1156-1159), Many Ochimusha (落ち武者;Defeated soldiers fleeing the enemy) fled and came to Tsukechi Valley.
And they built a temple .
Chisho( 智澄) who was a super extra high rank monk was the temple master.
He was a monk who was a veterinary expert.
BUT
he seemed to be stingy with money.He had much coins in his temple.
When He was 74 years old, he was killed by the village people.
I think, only he was rich.

Many villegers were poor. So villegers vented their frustration against Chisho monk.
After they killd Chisho, Villegers threw his body from a bridge at the lower part of a river..
A strange thing happened to Monk’s body.
The Monk’s Body went up the river and arrived the waterfall.

For a while , Monk’s body ( it is said that is was only Monk’s head) was turning around under the waterfall.
After the Monk's murder , people who are responsible for Monk murder have had misfortune or mysterious death.

It is said that Fudo Myoo statue was built in order to soothe Chisho ‘s vengeful spirit .

Because Fudoo Myoo beats all bad spirits.

Yamagata 山形県 Legend

The 赤滝の不動様 Fudo from Akataki "Red Waterfall" has special powers to heal eye disease.
Sometimes he changes into 大蛇 a huge serpent and people who happen to wintess this are cursed. Therefore all are quite afraid of this place.
