ABSTRACT

The myth of “Kojiki,” thus far, has been considered to be a festival myth. It is thought that myths develop and redevelop alongside rituals, and as these systematized, they became “Kojiki” or “nihonshoki.” However, religious services for “the deities of heaven and earth” that have been performed are continuous events to be repeated and carried out to prevent evil. In contrast, for this ritual, a contagious disease was prevalent at the age of the Emperor Sujin, and many people died of “Kojiki.” In other words, it became a festival for “peace and people to prosper around the world” with God. In a sense, where there was a crisis, this ritual was performed, and so it is not continuous but temporary. There is some part of the ritual that has been followed continuously because Amaterasu gave an order to “always worship this mirror like me” and applied this to “Kojiki.” However, the crisis for the country, which the Emperor rules over, is not accepted there. This means that the country that the Emperor rules over has been guaranteed limitlessly by Amaterasu.
