Examples of "kotowari"
Jugemu's full name is being quoted in the song "Jousha Hissui No Kotowari, Okotowari (盛者必衰の理、お断り)" by Japanese rock band KANA-BOON.
The Medicine Seller always proceeds in the same manner, using his knowledge of the supernatural to fend off the "mononoke" until he can learn the spirit's shape ("Katachi"), truth ("Makoto") and reasoning ("Kotowari"). Only then can he unsheathe his sword and exorcise the demon. The English subtitles translate these three necessities as Form, Truth, and Reason.
The band began its activities in 2010 with the announcement of a compilation album, "Alice Nine Complete Collection 2006-2009", which contains the title songs from each of the band's maxi-singles released since 2006. The compilation album was released on March 24, 2010. The band also finished their first tour of the year, "Kikagaku no Kotowari" (幾何学ノ理), that same month.
On April 4, 2010, during the final live of the "Kikagaku no Kotowari" tour, the band announced the release of a new single on August 4, 2010. However, the official website stated a slight delay of the single's release, pushing the release date to August 25, 2010. In the same announcement, the single was officially titled "Senkou." Filming of the music video for "Senkou" began in May 2010.
Almost all Kyogoku's books, especially Kyōgokudō Series, are very thick in comparison with other Japanese novels. For example, "Tesso no Ori" (鉄鼠の檻) is 826 pages long, "Jorōgumo no Kotowari" (絡新婦の理) is 829 pages long, "Nuribotoke no Utage, Utage no Shitaku" (塗仏の宴 宴の支度) and "Nuribotoke no Utage, Utage no Shimatsu" (塗仏の宴 宴の始末), a novel in two volumes, is 1248 pages long in total. Because of the thickness, his books look like bricks or dice, and are often called "brick books" or "dice books".
In significant respects, Jinsai can be seen as advancing the Neo-Confucian project that Zhu Xi, his chief philosophical adversary, had otherwise so effectively and persuasively championed. For example, Jinsai's most comprehensive philosophical text, the "Gomō jigi" ("The Meanings of Philosophical Terms in the" Analects "and" Mencius), was first recorded as Jinsai was giving a series of lectures on Chen Beixi's 陳北溪 (1156–1223) "Xingli ziyi" 性理字義 ("The Meanings of Neo-Confucian Philosophical Terms"). Much of the philosophical structure of Jinsai's "Gomō jigi" as well as its methodology of conceptual clarification and analysis clearly derive from Beixi's work. The two texts even share common elements in their titles, "jigi" and "ziyi" 字義 (Jpn: "jigi") being written with the same characters, referring to the meanings of words. In both cases, however, the words that were discussed and defined were distinctively philosophical terms such as "tendō" (the way of heaven), "tenmei" (the decree of heaven), "michi" (the way), "sei" (human nature), "kokoro" (the mind and heart), "kotowari" (principle), "kishin" (ghosts and spirits), and many others.
A wandering medicine peddler arrives at the house of the Sakai Clan on a wedding day, however as he crosses the threshold to the clan household he senses something is not right. It's not a happy day. To save themselves from disgrace and the poor-house, the family sold their only daughter's marriage to the Shiono Clan to clear their debts. The peddler is not welcome, but Kayo the maidservant allows him in the kitchen. Grateful, the peddler shows Kayo some special "marriage aids" for the bride, Lady Mao. Kayo's bravery and good sense will aid the peddler throughout the tale. As the bride crosses the threshold to meet her wedding escort, she dies mysteriously. The peddler being an outsider brings him under suspicion, and so he is seized and bound in ropes. Odajima searches the Peddler's pack for poison, but finds odd medicines and curios before he finds a bejeweled sword, which the peddler explains is a sword of Taima which is used to kill demons. The house comes under a demonic attack. The ropes magically fall from the peddler's arms and he casts paper wards on the walls to protect everyone. The wards will not hold for long, so the peddler urges the family and their retainers to reveal the terrible event that has caused such a powerful demon to appear. As soon as the peddler can discern the shape (katachi), truth (makoto) and reasoning (regret, kotowari) of the demon, the sword of Taima will unsheathe and dispel it. The peddler and Odajima find black cat hair, so the demon has the shape of a cat, a bake neko.
