■ History of Omiido stone

Kaji-chan:
When is Odo stone stone, when is it said that there are megaliths group? !

Mr. Holcro:
It is said that it is about 4,000 years ago. There are various opinions, but in legends demons are said to have played in this mountain in the evening night playing (Otama). It is also presumed that it may be an ancient ruin from the arrangement of the stone which is also thought to be artificial.

Kaji-chan:
That's right! By the way, as far as I can see, there are megaliths only in this area, why is there a megalith just here?

Mr. Holcro:
There are three theories.
The first one flew by the eruption of Mt. Aso that occurred 90,000 years ago, the second one was made by weathering and erosion, the third one was brought by someone. Regarding the first and the second one, why is it just here if it was true? When someone else brought it, how did you carry such a megalith ...
Since 4,000 years ago, it is enigmatic as to which is true.

Kaji-chan:
I see. Even if any of the three are true, it is strange that there are so many megaliths here only! By the way, it seems like the shape is different depending on the stone, something like a line is engraved, what is this?

Mr. Holcro:
There are various old stories on each stone in the stone on the hill of Okudo stone. Let's introduce one interesting stone one by one.

First, here"Scissors stone"

from long ago"Liars get caught"There was a legend that when I was a child I often got mad when asked to my parents "If you tell a lie it will be caught in a stone!"
This stone is likened to a woman in front, a stone in the back is a man, and a woman's womb as a whole around a giant stone group, and it seems that there was a festival for easy wish prayers at the time.

Next, here"Kagamishi"

Please look at this stone. There are lines on the surface of the stone.
This is because Sumerian letters are engraved as Petrograph (rockscript) and "Snake God · saint cattle" is revealed.

Can you find the Petrograph from among these? People who do not know come to the site, please see the real thing by all means.

※ This is the two signs surrounded by red!

By the way, Snake God reads Naga and the cow as barr, and if you continue reading these two, "Naga Ball"
· · Nagabar · · · Nagabal · · · Nagarbar · · · Nagarubaru? · · · Nakabaru? What? ... Nakabaru! What? ! ! !
That's right! The place name here isNakahara (Nakara)! ! ! !

If this is really the origin of the place name, it is an interesting story ~~ ^ ^

And finally, the biggest stone"Sun stone"

This stone is conspicuous in the hill of Okito stone which is 5.5 m in height and 13.8 m in the circumference. Adults look small.

The sun rises on the day of the summer solstice from the line connecting the scissors stone initially introduced from the top of the solar stone, and the sun will sink between the scissors stone on the day of the winter solstice.
Also, there is a North Star at the top of the sun rock, and it seems that this natural phenomenon seems to be whether someone deliberately placed the stone intentionally.

By the way, around this stone, the magnetic function is not normal, and the azimuthal magnet turns around with Kurukuru. Is there a source of power to heal people? From the legend that rain falls when climbing this stone, from the autumn it was angered from adults when climbing rice reclaiming time.

* You can lend a compass magnet at the reception desk!

Kaji-chan:
Next time, I'd definitely bring a compass magnet and I want to experience Kurukuru!
This time, listening to Mr. Holchiro's story, Otomo stone is really mysterious or wrapped in a mystery, but everything is funny stories and I want to believe everything! And I felt that this Okito stone hill itself was totally protected by being loved by local people from time to time.

Mr. Holcro:
To be honest, there are no such things as Sumerian letters and histories that we talked about before! There are also people saying. However, since it is a story before 4,000 years ago, I think that no one knows unless I borrow even a Doraemon tool. However, what we think is "I can not elucidate mystery", that is, I do not think that such romance may be present.

Kaji-chan:
Certainly, it is good to pursue what is the truth, but it is also good to enjoy the romantic feeling while leaving the mystery as a mystery ^ ^ When you are on the hill of Okito stone, you feel like being in an unusual situation I will! 360 ° As long as I can see, I felt that I am feeling relaxed from my heart in the great nature, I feel that time is slower than usual. It is a spot you would like visitors to know more!

■ Finally

On the Okudo stone hill, large and small romantic megalithes are greeted.
I'm sure that the sight that has never been seen spreads and I think that it will get lost in the mystery world of Okito stone for a moment (* ^^ *)

There are places where the road is rattling a little and there are places where the road width is narrow, but enjoy the nature including it too! I think if you can come with a feeling.
I am waiting for the coming of everyone from the bottom of my heart!
