Some people say that Japanese myth has a lot in common with the myth of other countries including Greece.
Is this just a coincidence?
Or people in two different countries had the same thought?
Or one told a story to another?

Adapting Chinese Lore to Native Beliefs and Purposes
By Steve Renshaw and Saori Ihara
June, 1999 [An early version of this article appeared in Appulse; Bulletin for the Philippine Astronomical Society , Vol. 9, #8, August, 1996.
An adaptation will also appear in "A Cultural History of Astronomy in Japan". In Astronomy Across Cultures: A History of Non-Western Astronomy . Dordrecht, Netherlands, Kluwer Academic Pub. (in press)] When we look at the adaptation of myth and legend imported from other cultures into Japan, we generally find such filtered through indigenous values and practices which have very old cultural roots. In modern times, as in old, it is difficult to find much of anything imported into Japanese life which is not filtered through such values and practices. [Please see Renshaw and Ihara (in press) for a more detailed discussion of underlying Japanese values and historical purposes]. Perhaps one of the best examples of adaptation of infused star lore is the story of Orihime and Kengyuu (Nojiri, 1973). This legend was probably imported from China in the Heian Era (794-1185), and its associated Tanabata Festival has developed through the centuries. The story involves the stars of Vega and Altair and their apparent proximity to the Milky Way. Krupp (1991) provides an excellent account of the story in its Chinese form. Essentially the same in character, there are some noticeable adaptations made in the Japanese version based on unique social values and seasonal needs. In Japan, the star Vega is often called Orihime Boshi (Weaving Princess Star), and Altair is often called Kengyuu Boshi or Hiko Boshi (Puller of Cows Star). To give the reader one Japanese version of the legend, we will paraphrase Hara (1975):

reasonable prices. If you found this page, you probably are well aware that good Japanese reference books can be really expensive! Well, it came to our attention that many Japanese suppliers intentionally inflate their prices when selling to people outside of Japan. This didn't seem fair to us, and we certainly didn't want to pay extra just because we live in the US. So, we set out to find an 'honest' book supplier willing to sell us books (still in print) for their actual retail price, or below. After a LOT of searching, emailing, begging and pleading, we were able to negotiate a deal with a very fair supplier. We reasoned with them that if they would allow us to sell books at a fair price, people would jump at the opportunity to expand their reference libraries- especially tattoo artists. We are working on setting up a shopping cart system for the site that should be deployed sometime in May or June, 2004. When it is finished, the book store will be linked to our merchant services to allow you to purchase books safely, and securely , using your credit card or a variety of other safe methods. In the mean time, we will take orders by email. Click here for ordering instructions and options.

  • The Two Frogs
    Once upon a time in the country of Japan there lived two frogs, one of whom made his home in a ditch near the town of Osaka, on the sea coast, while the other dwelt in a clear little stream which ran through the city of Kyoto. At such a great distance apart, they had never even heard of each other; but, funnily enough, the idea came into both their heads at once that they should like to see a little of the world, and the frog who lived at Kyoto wanted to visit Osaka, and the frog who lived at Osaka wished to go to Kyoto, where the great Mikado had his palace. So one fine morning in the spring they both set out along the road that led from Kyoto to Osaka, one from one end and the other from the other. The journey was more tiring than they expected, for they did not know much about traveling, and halfway between the two towns there arose a mountain which had to be climbed. It took them a long time and a great many hops to reach the top, but there they were at last, and what was the surprise of each to see another frog before him! They looked at each other for a moment without speaking, and then fell into conversation, explaining the cause of their meeting so far from their homes. It was delightful to find that they both felt the same wishto learn a little more of their native countryand as there was no sort of hurry they stretched themselves out in a cool, damp place, and agreed that they would have a good rest before they parted to go their ways.
