A festival cut/compilation of the animated segments made by Yamamura Kouji for a TV documentary by NHK, Kojiki Girl Travelogue (古事記ガール 日向路を旅する).


The four animation sequences written and directed by Yamamura are set in Hyuuga and concern themselves with the Shinto creation myth and the emergence of gods. After screening on TV and NHK on Demand, the sequences were edited into a festival version under the title The Hyuga episode of Kojiki (古事記 日向篇/ Kojiki Hyūgahen, Japan, NHK, 2013) and in French, Récit des temps anciens : épisodes de Hyûga. The festival edition competed at Ottawa, MONSTRA, and Animafest. It also made the Jury Selection at the 17th Japan Media Arts Festival.

The 4 episodes that compose The Hyuga Episode of Kojiki are:

#1 The Cleansing (禊/ Misogi, 3’17”)
#2 Sun Goddess Amaterasu (天照大御神/ Amaterasu Ookami, 2’11”)
#3 Flowering Tree (木花之佐久夜毘売/ Konohananosakuya-bime, 2’31”)
#4 Umisachi and Yamasachi (海佐知山佐知/ Umisachi Yamasachi, 3’30”)

If you're interested in Japanese mythology and the creation of Shintoism then this is a good very short film to watch. It was pretty interesting, I don't know if the story-telling is 100% accurate but it seemed like it was for the most part.

I really don't have anything more to say but MAL keeps wanting me to write so another good movie to watch is The Tale of Princess Kaguya. It's great Japanese lore and it was a pretty good movie too. I still have to write, this is so stupid MAL should for sure have a smaller character limit cause this is ridiculous.
