聖徳寺 temple Shotoku-Ji , Kumamoto 熊本市
A temple with a Kappa legend.

河童が馬にイタズラをしたと伝わるのが、聖徳寺さんから少し離れた所にある川の側にあります、高橋東神社の境内に今も残る巨大な楠木。
ここにつながれていた馬に、河童がちょっかいを出して聖徳寺まで引きずられてきたわけです。



かつては川に入る子供達はこの水難除けの御札を小さな竹筒に入れて肩からかけていたとの事でしたが、最近では川に入って泳ぐという事自体が少なくなって来たので、この御札の活躍の場も無くなって来たというお話でした。

. Suitenguu 水天宮 Shrine of the Water God - Introduction .
Fukuoka, Kyushu 福岡 九州 - Kurume town 久留米市
265 Senoshita-machi Kurume City / 福岡県久留米市瀬下町265

This is the Head Shrine of all the Suitengu shrines in japan.

There are a lot of legends about Kappa fighting the humans in the area of the Chikugo river 筑後川. But in the end the humans won and 九千坊河童 Kusengbo Kappa became the protector deity at this Suitengu Shrine.
So there are some prescriptions for the Shrine worshippers to prevent water accidents.

Before entering the water of a river you have to call out
"I am a heavenly messenger (mooshigo 申し子) sent from the Suitengu Shrine".
「水に入る前には水天宮の申し子だと唱える」

Other preventions from water accidents are :
- - not to eat mushrooms before entering the water
- - to have a bite from the rice offered at the Buddhist family altar 仏前飯




Kappa amulets of the shrine 河童面(かっぱめん)(箱・絵馬)
one mask comes in a box, the other on a votive tablet (ema).
They prevent evil influence and disasters. They must be hung in the demon-avoiding corner 鬼門 of the home.
Also 河童竹 and clay bells with the Kappa 河童鈴.
