“Kojiki (“It means Record of Ancient Matters”) is the oldest extant chronicle in Japan, dating from the early 8th century (711-2) and composed by “!no Yasumaro” at the request of “Empress Gemmei”.
The Kojiki is a collection of myths concerning the origin of the four home islands of Japan, and the “KAMI”(God). Along with the “Nihon Shoki”, the myths contained in the Kojiki are part of the inspiration behind Shinto practices and myths, including the “MISOGI” purification ritual.
In the story of Kojiki, Emperor Ch”ai, He played Koto. (I would like to compose Piano as Emperor Ch”ai’s symbol). God says some suggestion to him. (I would like to compose Violin as God’s symbol). This scene is famous.
