Mission in Tokyo – PART 3

%ef%bc%97%e5%b7%bb

At night of the day when I arrived in Tokyo, I went shopping to buy souvenirs for my family. I took a taxi and on the way to a store, I told the kind-looking taxi driver that I was a total stranger in Tokyo. He told me a lot of things.

  • souvenir お土産
  • kind-looking 親切そうな
  • stranger 道に不案内な人

Passing the Imperial Palace, I found Akasaka-goyouchi(赤坂御用地), in which there were houses for royal families, and nearby a shinto shrine decorated with a lot of red lanterns shinning brightly. The taxi driver said jokingly “The shrine is famous for Oininari-sama that makes people’s wishes come true. It’s never the head office of Yakitori-ya restaurants,” but I couldn’t laugh at the red electric lights.

  • nearby 近くに
  • decorate 飾る
  • lantern 提灯

Taking a look at Togu Gosho (東宮御所)in Akasaka-goyouchi from the standpoint between the Imperial Palace and this Inari shrine made me feel that anyone living in Togu Gosho would get in trouble. This is because spiritual energy full of greed visitors to the Inari shrine emit, pushed away by a spiritual current from the Imperial Palace, hits Togu Gosho. Tenkai(天海), a famous Buddhist monk in Edo period who formed spritual barriers around Edo Castle to protect it spiritually, would be surpried at the fact that the present Prince’s house is located in such a place.

  • get in trouble 厄介なことになる
  • greed 貪欲
  • current 流れ
  • barrier 結界

It is spiritually right that the Crown Prince should live in a house in the Imperial Palace so that he could live with his parents. By doing so, the intention of Amaterasu-o-ho-mi-kami (天照太御神)would be realized more effectively. There is a spiritual correlation between the Emperor with the Emperor Spirit, the soul of Japan, inside him, and his nation and people. The Emperor and Empress getting along with their children would have a good effect on the Japanese nation.

  • the Crown  Prince 皇太子
  • intention 意志
  • realize 実現する
  • correlation 相関関係

For the Emperor to live with the other imperial families in one place can cause a risk in terms of security. But still I, nothing but a businessman, hope that the present custom should be changed for the nation and people. In this way, the first night in Tokyo passed.

To be continued.

  • imperial family 皇族
  • in terms of A Aの観点から
  • custom 慣習
