TAKENOUCHI DOCUMENTS BOOK III:PROLOGUE
Could the Ancestry of the American Indian be from the Sumera-Mikoto lineage of ultra ancient times?
In Japan, there exist the most ancient documents of human history that resolve many of the world's mysteries. These documents are called the 'Takenouchi Documents'.
From where did humans originate and how did they build civilizations? Some established theories provide answers to these questions; however, there are still many mysteries to be solved. The Takenouchi Documents provide precise answers regarding the details of human history; the creation of the universe, the birth of humans, and the rise and fall of ancient civilizations.
One might think that humans could not possibly know about the creation of the universe because no one existed at that time. Although it is a mystery to all of us, humans have been pursuing answers to this question in the name of science. We should not forget that our modern science is not the ultimate science but mainly consists of theories which may be rewritten in the future.
However, once we reach a conclusion, we tend to keep it as an established theory. Thus a person who proposes a new theory at a later time is often called a 'heretic'. Ever since the Takenouchi Documents were disclosed to the public in the year 1910, the documents have been considered to be heretical because of their large scope and huge deviations from existing historical documents. In 1937, when the Sino-Japanese war broke out, the Takenouchi Documents were heavily criticized because the description of the ancestral rout of Japanese royal family was regarded as blasphemy. At that time, Kano Kokichi, a great scholar of the time, criticized the Takenouchi Documents. This gave an impression that the documents were false and unauthentic, although legally a decision was made concluding that the documents were not disrespectful to the royal family.
The truth or falsehood of historical facts should not be decided by a majority vote. However, traditionally historical facts are decided according to the theory with the largest number of supporters. Galileo Galilei, who proposed the theory of the rotation of the earth around the sun, was regarded as a heretic and was put on trial by the Spanish Inquisition. Galilei is said to have murmured, after the inquisition, that the earth was truly rotating around the sun. Whether acknowledged by people or not, truth is truth. There is only one truth.
I have carried out research and field surveys on historical documents of the world, believing that historical facts described in the Takenouchi Documents are true. I travelled around the world on my own feet and conducted research with my own eyes. The results of my research have provided me with countless new facts which could not possibly be provided by research from a desk. Some results of my research have been published in two books: Takenouchi Documents I and Takenouchi Documents II with numerous illustrations. The author of the book conducted research from a global point of view so as to let the world know of the important ancient documents which exist in Japan. The author feels that the initial goal, to let people know of the existence of the Takenouchi Documents, has been partially fulfilled because many readers of my book have supported my research, despite being conditioned by modern history. In 1996, the author was awarded the JLNA Bronze Special Award, presented to those who offer long years of dedication to journalism. The author takes pride in his dedicated research which has finally been recognized by society.

In this book, the author attempts to focus on the relationship between American Indians and ancient Japan (the Jomon period), and the relationship between the parent nation (ancient Japan) and branch nations (nations other than Japan). In other words, the book attempts to provide evidence based on the culture and language of the American Indians, showing that they are the descendents of the princes and princesses of the Sumera-Mikoto lineage who were dispatched around the world from ancient Japan.
Symbol of the Sumera-Mikoto and Indians who seek the restoration of divine politics I became aware of one particular concept when I was about to publish the results of my research. Providing evidence of the relationship between American Indians and ancient Japan is part of my lifelong research on the Takenouchi Documents and it is also a promise I made to the Indian ancestor spirits whom I have encountered in the past.
My first encounter with American Indians took place in 1975. I visited Chicago to participate in the World Congress hosted by Eric von Daniken1 under the auspices of the Ancient Astronomer Association. In Chicago, I went to a bookshop where I happened to find a small book entitled 'The Takenouchi Documents'. To my surprise, it was an English version of the Takenouchi Documents (brief description) written by Nakasono Masahiro of Kotodama Institute in the USA, hosted by Ogasawara Koji, chairman of the Third Civilization. The book briefly describes Divine characters and the world ruled by the Sumera-Mikoto in ultra ancient times. In those days, the Takenouchi Documents were not well known even in Japan, but someone had introduced the documents to the USA, which was a big surprise for me! When I found the book, I truly felt that America had been enlightened by his book.
Soon I contacted Nakasono Masahiro and visited the Kotodama Institute in Santa Fe in New Mexico during my spare time, while visiting in the US. After I met Nakasono Masahiro, we hit it off well and spent two full days together talking about and comparing the results of our own research. Through our conversation, I realized that Ogasawara Koji and Nakasono Masahiro had been motivated by the desire to introduce an understanding of Kotodama to the world. Then I asked a question concerning Kotodama which I had held for a long time. There was a phrase 'Mu-u-ayawa-takamanahara-nayasawa' in the book entitled 'The Hitsuki Shinji'2 (Sun-Moon Revelation) Series (published by Hayashi Michiaki, Tenchino-Shupansha) which was based on the revelation of the late Sato received from the Sun-Moon god. 'Takamanahara' refers to 'Takamagahara' (Heavenly high land), which is the land where gods reside and often appear in Japanese mythology or Shinto prayers.
According to the Sun-moon god revelation, 'Takamagahara' should not contain the impure sound such as 'maga' from the viewpoint of Kotodama. It should be pronounced as 'Takaamahara'. One may think that a single phonetic sound would not make much of a difference. However, a single phonetic sound of a language, in this case Japanese, makes a big difference because depending on the sound, the spiritual function of the word will differ. In particular 'maga' (misfortune or crooked) might result in disaster or misfortune, as the sound suggests, so that the Kotodama should definitely be corrected. I agree on this theory; however, I have never seen any other books except the Hitsuki Shinji which support this theory. Ever since, I always wanted to ask a researcher in this field about this theory. Then I found Nakasono Masahiro who is a specialist in Kotodama. Unfortunately, however, Nakasono insisted that 'Takamagahara' is correct, and I could not agree with him.

This institute is supposed to play a central role in teaching Kotodama in the USA; however it accepts an incorrect sound, 'maga'. I therefore felt that the true function of Kotodama would not be revealed in the USA. I was determined to offer a prayer to God for world peace based on correct Kotodama, by myself. The next day, I left Nakasono's home and headed for the Rocky Mountains to offer my prayer to God. At that time, I never expected to meet someone there to whom I was going to make a promise.
I picked a place to say my prayer in an open space in the Rocky Mountains near Santa Fe, New Mexico. I offered my prayer for world peace with the correct sound of 'Mu-u-ayawa- takamanahara-nayasawa'. Then, a spirit calling himself an ancestor of the American Indians spoke to me through telepathy. 'All of us wish to participate in the restoration of Japan's divine politics. Our wish is not known to anyone, although we wish to tell it to someone. You pray for world peace, however world peace shall not come unless you enshrine us. Please provide a place for a ceremony for the five-coloured races in the Rocky Mountains. We believe that you will fulfill this promise. Our request to you is followed by our investigation of your family lineage'.
Because I am a researcher of the Takenouchi Documents, I soon realized that the spirit was a descendent of the princes and princesses of the Sumera-Mikoto lineage, who were sent to America in ultra ancient times. The word spoken by the spirit 'five-coloured races' explains this. 'The five-coloured races' is the general term for all mankind in ultra ancient times. This also appears in the Takenouchi Documents. The five colours refer to the five different skin colours (white, yellow, red, blue, and black) of the people of the world. The spirit may have deplored the fact that modern people of the world have forgotten that the Sumera-Mikoto was the world leader, and expressed a wish to participate in the restoration of divine politics. Divine politics, led by the Sumera-Mikoto in ultra ancient times, led to an ideal society, therefore restoration of divine politics could be the only means for humans to actualize world peace. I wondered how it was possible to achieve this. Then I came up with the following idea and said to the spirit: 'How is it possible to build a ceremonial place for the five-coloured races in the Rocky Mountains while there is no such place in the land of origin (present Japan)? I will build a true ceremonial place in Japan first, so please wait until then'. After this, I offered a prayer with true Kotodama which penetrated the sun, moon and earth. I then looked at the ground and picked up a small stone lying there. I then said to the spirit 'I will take you to Japan, so please reside and settle in the stone'. The Indian ancestral spirit was very grateful for my offer and connected to the stone. I repeated this process for other ancestral spirits. When I counted the stones, there were 36 in the end.
After this, I visited a place of prayer for American Indians called a 'Kiba'. The 'Kiba' is located underground, so I entered down a ladder. There was no lighting inside, so the sound and light were shut out to create the space for prayer. I thought about the ancient American Indians there. After I left the 'Kiba', an unusual phenomenon occurred. For some reason, a Waka (a 31- syllable Japanese poem) came out of my mouth all of a sudden. I had never composed a Waka in my life, however the Waka came out with a fruity voice and I had no idea what I was saying. The Waka said 'Amatsukami (Heavenly gods) Wasurejitakamine (forgot-high mountains), Kumoharashi (clear the clouds) Taikonohibiki (echo of ancient times) Amatsukanaden (resounds in Heaven)'.
On the bus to my next destination, one Waka came out after another, which made me feel very strange. 'I do not normally compose Waka, but why did they come out while I was in the US?' Later I realized that the series of Waka were probably composed by Indian ancestral spirits. Then I returned to Japan with the stones to which the Indian ancestral spirits had connected.
The ceremony for the five-coloured races was revived at Mt. Kurai Soon after returning from the World Congress, at Narita airport, I asked the spirits in the stones brought from the Rocky Mountains 'where would you like to be placed so that you can return to the soil?' The answer soon came to mind, 'Mt. Kurai'. Mt. Kurai is a spiritual mountain, located in Takayama, Hida, Gifu Prefecture. According to the Takenouchi Documents, Mt. Kurai is a sacred mountain where the Sumera-Mikoto descended for the first time. I then enshrined the 36 stones on an altar stone at the site of some ancient ruins on Mt. Kurai. When I visited Mt. Kurai with the stones, the sky was overcast but when I began to offer my prayer, the clouds began to split and the sunlight began to pour down like a curtain, and a voice echoing from heaven said 'construction of Suza (place of God) should begin by putting this altar stone horizontally'. It was not easy to say 'yes' to this voice, because the altar stone was so huge that a big crane was needed to move it. Then I seriously wondered how I could place the altar stone horizontally only with the people who accompanied me. Our discussion ended with an unexpected result. We did not understand the true meaning of the divine message because our understanding was only at a superficial level. 'Putting the altar stone horizontal' did not mean to physically move the stone to a horizontal level, but to make the heart of the people residing in Japan (where humans originated) horizontal. A horizontal heart is similar to a mirror in that the heart is pure enough to reflect the heart of god without distorting it.
Having realized the true meaning of the divine message, I decided to carry out the ceremony for the five-coloured races, praying that the Japanese people's heart would become horizontal. The date of the ceremony was set for October 10th. The scheduled date was based on the principle that light from heaven directly shines into the horizontal stone (heart) at this time. Many ideas where expressed as to how to conduct the ceremony for the five-coloured races. The five different colours of cloth (white, yellow, red, blue and purple) normally used for divine ceremonies were modified to reflect the original five-coloured races (white, yellow, red, blue and black). Since the original five colours represent five different skin colours according to the Takenouchi Documents, purple was made to be black. We also paid attention to the Kotodama so that we created new words of prayer containing the correct Kotodama, by using the word 'Takaamahara'. We also asked the chief priest from the Mizunashi Shinto shrine to make the prayer, as the shrine regards Mt. Kurai in Hida Ichinomiya as its altar. Anyone who wished for world peace was welcome to participate in the ceremony regardless of their religion and sect.
Although preparation time for the ceremony was rather short, the ceremony was solemnly held. More than 30 people from different regions participated in the ceremony. Those who took part included representatives from Aso Heitategu shrine, Sekai Mahikari Bunmei Kyodan, Sukyo Mahikari and psychics who heard a voice telling them to go to Mt. Kurai on that day.
I continued my research and field surveys so that as many people as possible could understand the truth of the ultra ancient civilizations. This time, the author was permitted to introduce part of the proof that the origin of the American Indians is related to the Sumera-Mikoto of ancient Japan. This was possible because the Japanese people became ready to accept such evidence. I was finally able to fulfill my promise to the American Indian ancestor spirits, and I felt good about fulfilling my responsibility.
I earnestly hope that through this book: understanding of the Takenouchi Documents will be deepened; ceremonial places for the five-coloured races will be reintroduced around the world; and the path leading to the restoration of divine politics for the 21st century will be opened.
Finally I want to thank those who cooperated with me in completing this book; Mr. Nagira, of the Earth Report Company for information gathered in the US, Lenart Olen Bacha, a German American in California who acted as a coordinator for Maya research. Mr. Fukuda Tomoyuki of the folklore museum in Aomori who provided me with precious earthenware, and the late Takenouchi Yoshimiya, former chief priest of the Koso Kotai Jingue shrine, who always supported my research.
