鬼岳 Mt. Onidake, a dormant volcano, almost naked, 315 meter
長崎県五島市 Nagasaki, Goto Islands



yamayaki 山焼き burning the mountain in spring

The Mt. Onidake Volcanic group on the south coast of Fukue Island was formed by a muzzle volcano erupting 50 thousand years ago on top of a shield volcano that had erupted five million years ago. This group is made up of the mountains Onidake, Hinotake, Shirodake, Minodake, and Usudake.
The central mountain, Onidake, is an unusual mountain covered with mountain grass instead of trees because the top is burned once every three years. It is the main sightseeing area for Fukue since guests can see the main business area of the city, the surrounding islands, and Fukue port.

Sumo wrestler (warrior) Onigadake Tetsuemon 鬼ヶ嶽鉄右衛門 


Utagawa Kuniyoshi - actor 中村芝翫 Nakamura Shikan

稲妻大蔵 Inazuma Taizo
Once upon a long time ago, in the village of 小栗村 Ogurimura in 諌早 Isahaya (長崎県 Nagasaki) there lived a farmer couple who did not have children.
They went to mount 八天嶽 Hattendake to pray. And then a Tengu came at night . . . well well, the woman got pregnant and bore a strong son.
The boy named Taizo became a strong Sumo wrestler. The Tengu trained him the best he could. Taizo won all the bouts in his village.
Taizo eventually went to Edo and nobody could defeat him. Taizo almost won against the strongest Sumo wrestler in Edo, 鬼ヶ岳 Onigadake, but Onigadake had asked him to let him win, so Taizo lost this one bout (and thus his Tengu power) and then all the other bouts after that and went home much ashamed.
Sometimes the villagers could hear a boulder (ゴットン石 Gotton Ishi) rumble at Mount Hattendake, where Taizo was practicing Sumo with al his former might. He could lift the boulder and carry it to the summit in no time.
