Translated from Kitaro no Tengoku to Jigoku
Mt. Fudaraku is the home of the bodhisattva Kannon. There also is found the beautiful garden known as the Fudaraku Pure Land.
The Fudaraku Pure Land can be reached by a small boat called the utsubo-bune. That boat primarily departs from Kumano beach in Kishu province (modern-day Wakayama prefecture). The utsubo-bune has no windows, and instead has three or four tori gates where windows would be. Passengers bring fruits and nuts for the journey, and the utsubo-bune has pegs on which to hang them.
The utsubo-bune goes with the North wind, and travels onward until it reaches the Fudaraku Pure Land.
