Notes[edit]

  1. A reference to Ninigi's first encounter with Konohanasakuya-hime and Iwanaga-hime in the Nihon Shoki, where the sisters are described as wearing bracelets that jangle as they weave on their looms.
  2. Due to Iwanaga-hime's powers of permanence and stillness, she is sometimes worshipped explicitly for hopes of longevity. Hieda no Akyuu brings this up in Forbidden Scrollery.
  3. Reference to Konohanasakuya-hime's marriage and Iwanaga-hime's rejection in the Nihon Shoki. Because Ninigi spurned Iwanaga-hime, the goddess of longetivity, his and Konohanasakuya-hime's descendants were cursed by the goddesses' father to lead glorious but short lives. This is described with the sentence 必如木花之移落, from which the Spell Card's name borrows its phrasing.
  4. Nagano Prefecture (formerly Shinano Province) is home to both the Yatsugatake mountain range, where Iwanaga-hime is said to dwell, and abundant sources of wasabi plants.
  5. Various regions of Japan are home to folklore of apparitions of women weaving in flooded ravines, including variants where the woman haunts the ravine after drowning there. Some scholars have connected this to folklore of tanabatatsume (棚機津女), women who weave robes in ritual enclosures by a waterside. When Ninigi meets them in the Nihon Shoki, Konohanasakuya-hime and Iwanaga-hime are similarly described as weaving in a palace built atop the crests of waves.
  6. Partial quotes from two poems: "年の瀬や 水の流れと 人の身は" by Takarai Kikaku, and "何をくよくよ 川端柳 水の流れをみて暮らそう" by Sakamoto Ryouma. Both liken a person's life to the ever-changing flow of a river, and are quoted by the protagonist of Osamu Dazai's No Longer Human at one point in the novel.
  7. 不二 (one-of-a-kind, incomparable, etc.) would be pronounced 'fuji' in Japanese; potentially a pun on Mount Fuji?
