The scene painted on this scroll represents the tale of when Kaiko, the object of Mana worship, offered up his own body to save the lives of the starving villagers.

It is forbidden to tread upon the sacred ground where this holy act is said to have taken place.

On August 25, 1856, a very tall man fell from the sky and landed near Mount Gojaku in Misumi County.

The giant's bizarre appearance is illustrated in this drawing.

His head was a full 18 inches long and his body was nine feet long.

He attempted to enlighten the villagers with his unique brand of philosophy, but the foul smell that lingered around him was so overwhelming it knocked out anyone that could have been within earshot to hear his teachings.

How did he know me?
