山の方向性で意見二分

Opinions Divided On Mountain's Future Direction

大蛇と白狼天狗の確執

Giant Serpent and White Wolf Tengu At Odds

この度、年末年始に向けて守矢神社が参道を作るという話が持ち上がり、一部の天狗と揉めている。

At this time, a discussion is brewing about constructing a road to the shrine from the village towards the winter holidays. However this seems to be a point of concern for some of the Tengu.

守矢神社は一番の稼ぎ時である年始迄に、誰でも通れる様な道を作りたいのだという。しかし、天狗や山に住む妖怪達の中には、何人たりとも通さない、と頑なに否定している者も居る。

Moriya Shrine wants to construct a road that anyone can use before the end of the year, which is the most profitable time for them. However, from within the Tengu and youkai that live in the mountains there are a few of those stubbornly against this asserting "We are not letting anybody in".

守矢神社の神様、八坂神奈子さん(山の神)は、閉鎖的な山の妖怪に対してこう語る。

The god of the Moriya Shrine, Kanako Yasaka (God of the Mountain), spoke on these close-minded mountain youkai.

「白狼天狗のへりくつにはうんざり。何も山を荒らす為に道を作るわけじゃないし、むしろ山の信仰が増えて自分達も力を増すっていうのに……。自分が外に出たくない事を正当化する事しか脳にないんだわ。」

"I'm sick of these far-fetched arguments the white wolf Tengu are making. It's not like we're making this road to let people wreak havoc on the mountain. In fact, it will allow for an increase in the mountain's faith, which will increase their own power. I can't help but think they only have the brains to justify their desire to not go outside."

それに対し、白狼天狗は「我々は侵入者を監視するのが仕事だ」と、つっけんどん。

In response to this, the white wolf Tengu replied curtly, "It is our duty to keep watch on intruders."

現状、守矢神社への参拝は殆ど行われていない。それは白狼天狗が監視している所為でもある。仕方が無く、守矢神社は麓に分社を置いてそちらに参拝してもらったり、自らが営業に行ったりして人間の信仰を稼いでいる。

As it is right now, the praying of respects at Moriya Shrine is a rare occurrence. One of the reason of this is due to the White Wolf Tengu on guard. Seeing no other way, they established a branch shrine in the valley to allow people to come and pray respects, as well as conducting business by themselves and gather faith from humans.

しかし、神社側にも新しい策があるようだ。それが人里から神社にかけての「架空索道」の設置だ。

However the shrine has devised a new plan. That is the establishment of an "arial tramway" from the Human Village to the shrine.

架空索道とは、ロープに吊した籠に人間や荷物を載せて運ぶ物である。これならば、神社以外の場所には一切立ち寄らなくて参拝できる。何処にも寄らないなら、追い返される理由は無い、という訳だ。

An arial tramway is a cage held up by a rope which allows for the transportation of humans and luggage. If this was made possible, visitors would be able to visit the shrine without needing to pass through any other locations. As long as they don't pass through anywhere else, there is no reason to turn them away.

この案に対し天狗のリーダーである大天狗様の意見は

In response to this plan, the Tengu leader Dai Tengu gave the following opinion:

「神社が我々に籠に載っている何かを奉納するのであれば考えなくもないぞ」

"If the shrine dedicate us some offerings on that cage then we might give it a try to consider."

と強気だ。恐らく巻き上げるだけ巻き上げて何もしないつもりだろう。

With firm resolution. It appears that they are willing to get whatever they could out of it and won't do anything.

妖怪が見守る中の架空索道、ただの標的になる気もするが……神社側の山の開放派、天狗側の山の閉鎖派で意見が割れた妖怪の山。話は簡単には纏まりそうにない。

A cage watched over by the Youkai ... I can only think it being a target. The shrine side looking to open up the mountain to visitors, the Tengu side looking to keep it closed off, opinions divided in Youkai Mountain. It doesn't seem like this will be resolved easily.
