霞網の是非は如何に?

What Would the Propriety of Mist Nets Be?

垂直に張られた網の正体とは

The Identity of The Nets being set on Vertically

霞網の是非に関わる協議会が行われた。霞網とは、山中に垂直に張られた網の事で、寝ぼけていると引っかかったりしてしまう為、見つけ次第撤去をするのだが、またすぐに張り直されたりといたちごっこを繰り返していた。長らく誰が何の為に張ったのか不明であったが、最近その謎が解明した。

A conference was held to discuss the propriety of mist nets. A mist net is a net that is set vertically in the mountains, and since you may get caught by it when you are half-asleep, It is suppose to be taken away when found, but had been immediately set back again, making them play a cat and a mouse game. There was no clue of the person who and why he/she had set it for a long time, but recently the mystery has been solved.

霞網は、空中に漂う霞を集める為に張られているのだという。霞は仙人の主食であり、比較的高値で取引が行われているとされる。その装置を発明したのは河童だ。

It is said that mist nets are there for gathering mist floating in air. Mist is the main diet of hermit, and it is to be on the market for a relatively high price. The ones who have invented the tool were Kappa.

霞を捕まえて売る事が出来れば確かに経済が潤うだろう。しかし、網のお陰で鳥達にも被害が出ているという問題点も無視できず存在し、協議会は白熱した。

Truly the economy will rise if the mist could be caught and sold. But the net making harm for the birds which was an unignorable issue that still existed, the conference went hot.

妖怪の山に住む仙人、茨木華扇さんはこう語る。

The Hermit living in Youkai Mountain, Kasen Ibaraki says:

「あ、いや、霞って……網で捕まえるもんだったんですか? それはともかく、野生の鳥に被害が出るのであれば、禁止した方が良くありませんか?」

"Um, sorry, but did you just say you catch mist by a net?. Be that as it may, shouldn't we need to ban them, if they're causing harm to the wild birds?"

河童は、野生の鳥に被害が出るのであれば被害が出ないように改良するだけだ、我々には霞を取る権利がある、とあくまで強気だ。

The Kappa remain aggressive claiming that "We will just make improvement to stop the harm if there is any, we have the right to catch mist.".

それに対し、華扇さんは、

"We don't just eat mist. And even if we do eat them we could simply get it somewhere around....... I mean, who does buy such things?"

協議会での結論は「空を飛ぶ生き物に影響ある網は禁止」という事になった。程なくして河童は霞のみを捕まえる新型の霞網を開発したようだが、霞自体の販売が上手くいかず霞網は減っていくだろうと予想される。ただし、霞を効率よく捕まえる技術は何かに活かされる事だろう。

The conclusion of the conference was: "Nets which have affect to a flying living thing will be banned.". Shortly, it looked like the Kappa had made a new version of a mist net which will only catch mist, but predictably the sales of mist will not be that good and the number of mist nets will fall. But the technology to catch mist efficiently would be used somewhere in the future.
