Some of his 足跡 footprints in Chiba, later turned ponds:
- between 根郷村寺崎 Negomura Terasaki and 太田 Ota
- on the road from 根郷村城 Negormura Castle toward 大篠塚 Oshinozuka
- at 酒々井町酒々井の西井戸 Nishi Ido in Shisui village
- at 酒々井町の下台の谷上り Shisui village
- at 成田町論田 Naritamachi, Ronden

The one at temple 安食町の龍角寺 Ryukaku-Ji in Ajiki village is between 印西 Inzai and 印東 Into, where the monster used to pee.
The swamp 印旛沼 Inbanuma is a left-over from his pee.

The mountain behind the shrine 大鷲神社 was left there when it fell from his back while he was carrying it to a different place.


- quote -
Daidarabotchi (ダイダラボッチ, literally "Giant")
was a gigantic yōkai in Japanese mythology, sometime said to pose as a mountain range when sleeping.



Daidarabotchi's size was so great that his footprints were said to have created innumerable lakes and ponds. In one legend, a Daidarabotchi weighed Mount Fuji and Mount Tsukuba to see which was heavier. But he accidentally split Tsukuba's peak after he was finished with it. The Hitachi no Kuni Fudoki, a recording of the imperial customs in the Hitachi Province compiled in the 8th century, also told of a Daidarabotchi living on a hill west of a post office of Hiratsu Ogushi who fed on giant clams from the beach, piling the shells on top of a hill.
Izumo no Kuni Fudoki also mentions a legendary king of Izumo, Ōmitsunu, who was the grandson of Susano'o and a demi-god. Having the strength of a giant, he performed Kuni-biki, pulling land from Silla with ropes, to increase the size of his territory.

Fukushima 福島県

檜枝岐村 Hinoemata

Yama no Shinkoo 山の神講 The Mountain Deity prayer group
All male villagers of Hinoemata
join this group from the age of 18 to about 30.
Twice a year, in Spring and Autumn, they assemble at the home of the village chief, bringing food for a feast. In the tokonoma alcove they hang a scroll of Yama no Kami 山の神 God of the Mountain and stay up all night with lantern light.
Eating the special bandei mochi with a prayer for safety during the work in the mountains, they drink and dance all night. Two special representatives have to stand before the God of the Mountains to perform prayers in the evening and morning, so these two take a seat at the top of the table.
Since the God of the Mountains must be kept pure without ritual pollution, the sake for the god must be served by a woman not married (a virgin).

鹿島神社 Kashima Jinja

Yashinboo Doosojin やしんぼ道祖神 Yashinbo Dosojin, "Malicious Dosojin"
yashinbo卑しん坊 means someone who wants anything around him.
Near the Shrine 鹿島神社 Kashima Jinja there are three small stone sanctuaries for these wayside gods.
They offer their help and grant a wish if you bring some o-sake whilst making a wish.
On the other hand, if you take away just one stem of the wild sasa bamboo around, they will get angry and bring harm.
Most farmers who come to worship here bring offerings and clean the place carefully.
