A one-volume Ryōbu Shintō text of the Kamakura period which details the characteristics of the kami of heaven and earth based on Ryōbu Shintō theory. In the opening of the text, it is declared that the work was "written by Gyōki Bosatsu [the Bodhisattva Gyōki]," but such embellishments were of course added by later generations. Since this text was cited in Watarai Yukitada's Korō kujitsu den (completed in 1300), we know that Yamatokatsuragi hōzan ki must have been completed before the start of the fourteenth century. The word "hōzan" in the title refers to Mount Katsuragi, so this text was most likely written by an adherent of the Katsura Shugen lineage. Yamatokatsuragi hōzan ki is also known as Katsuragi hōzan ki, or the Jingi hōzan ki. This text is included in Shintō taikei, Yamato-kuni; Zoku gunsho ruijyū, jingi-bu; Dai nihon bukkyō zensho, jishi sōsho; Nihon daizōkyō, shugendō shōso; and Nihon shisō taikei, chūse Shintō ron (1967, Iwanami Shoten).
