Shugenja no tatari 修験者の祟り The curse of the Shugenja



Once upon a time
there lived a guardian soldier in Sendai, named 広田甚八 Hirota Jinpachi.
One evening he had been drinking sake with his friends. They were just having a good time when a Shugenja came to the door and blew his ritual conch 法螺貝. Jinpachi got angry, d attacked the Shugenja and finally killed him in his anger.
Next day Jinpachi was put to trial but let go free, since he was a samurai. But later he was put to trial again and thrown into jail, where he soon died of madness.
His son had been in charge of the horses in Edo. On the evening before the son arrived in Edo there was a Shugenja at his gate and asked "Is this the estate of Hirota?"
"Yes sir".
"Oh, I thought they had all died, how stange!" replied the Shugenja. The servant kicked him out of the gate and reported the event to his master. When he mentioned it was a Shgenja, Hirota got pale in his face and ran out to bring the man back. But he was nowhere in sight. And soon after this event the young Master Hirota also died.
His son 彦兵衛 Hikobe and his daughter also died soon after.
His widow became the second wife of one 丹野某 Tanno, but she also died soon afterwards in mysterious circumstances.
