- Legend of Mount Imakuma and 刈寄山 Mount Kariyoseyama in Oku-Tama -


source : toki.moo.jp/gaten..655..

The wife of 安閑天皇 Ankan Tenno (466 - 536), Empress 橘仲皇女 Tachibana no Nakatsu Himemiko, was lost and could not be found. Following a divination of the deities he went to pray at Mount Imakumasan and called out her name. And indeed, he found her. Since that time, the Shrine is famous for helping people to find lost ones and abducted children, by calling out the name of the missing.
yobawari yama 呼ばわり山
Not only humans, all kinds of missing or lost things can be found calling out the name of the item and waiting for an echo to come back.

At the back of the mountain shrine is a stone memorial 天狗の文字 for a Tengu - so maybe - it's this Tengu who abducts humans and takes away things, only to bring them back when called for it properly.
This story relates to the temple 正福寺 Shofuku-Ji and Saint Choin, who had come from 熊野本宮 Kumano Hongu, Wakayama

In the compound is a memorial stone of the Ukiyo-e artist
小林清親 Kobayashi Kiyochika



清親画伯之碑 Kiyochika

- quote -
Kobayashi Kiyochika
(10 September 1847 – 28 November 1915) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, best known for his ukiyo-e colour woodblock prints and newspaper illustrations. His work documents the rapid modernization and Westernization Japanese underwent during the Meiji period (1868–1912) and employs a sense of light and shade called kōsen-ga  inspired by Western art techniques.

His work first found an audience in the 1870s with prints of red-brick buildings and trains that had proliferated after the Meiji Restoration; his prints of the First Sino-Japanese War of 1894–95 were also popular. Woodblock printing fell out of favour during this period, and many collectors consider Kobayashi's work the last significant example of ukiyo-e.



..... Kiyochika's depictions of the Westernization of Meiji Japan has both benefited and hindered later assessment of his work; it disappoints collectors looking for an idealized Japan of old that lures many to ukiyo-e, while it provides a historical record of the radical changes of the time.
