Shintō ameno nuboko no ki
Text (Izawa Banryū)
A work in two volumes by Izawa Banryū, published in 1720. Banryū (1688-1730) was a samurai from the Higo Kumamoto Clan, and was a popular Shintoist during the middle years of the Edo period. His name was Nagahide, but he went by the alias Banryū. He studied Suika Shintō in Edo and also excelled at martial arts. This work was written from the view of Banryū's Shintō research that was based on the fundamentals of Suika Shintō and his training in martial arts. Because Japan was created from the heavenly jeweled spear given to the two deities Izanagi and Izanami by the heavenly deity (tenjin), he argued that Japan was originally a warrior country, and he gathered records and quotes related to spears and swords, and compiled commentary on their origins and history. This is included in Yamamoto Shinya's Shintō sōsetsu (1911).
