2 People of Seichō-ji Temple of the Hometown (2)

                   Japanese version


At that time, they could hear people's voice of the front gate.
"Did Rencho return home?".
O'ama was restless.
All members proceeded to the entrance hall.
Buddhist priests of the temple are quarrelling with samurais who rode a horse at the door front.
One samurai among them, Kagenobu Tojo of the land steward was staring with a fearless look.
He is a guest who has not invited. Disappointment clouded their features.
Kagenobu Tojo looked down all people of the Seichoji Temple.

“Well! Every one of the Seichoji temple, all of you are together here, are not you? I thought today to decide the longtime land dispute and came over”.

Youth Jokenbo, the senior disciple of Rencho, glared at Kagenobu and criticize him.
“Lord Tojo, what did you say? You are not permitted the selfish behavior in this temple despite a land steward”.
Kagenobu looked the other way.
"I manage this whole area. I am ruling this land by the instruction of Kamakura shogunate that is the leader of the samurai family".
Likewise, the senior disciple Gijobo rebutted with determination.
"It is that the effective on the land which the land steward rules over. Your control is powerless against this Seichoji Temple”.
Kagenobu do not hear in silence. He retorts to Gijobo by the authority of the shogunate.

"However, it is a fact that there are some people against Kamakura. It is what is not permitted that old-fashioned temples behave selfishly”.
It is the issue is about the crisis of the Seichoji temple. Jokenbo hunts down Kagenobu without flinching.

"You appeal to Lord Kamakura if so and should decide which is right!".

Dozenbo could not bear to see a violent quarrel between his disciples and land steward and stepped in between them.

"Dear land steward Kagenobu, actually, the person who is called Rencho of my disciple finished long ascetic practices in the Enryakuji Temple and will return here today or tomorrow. We are busy with preparations to invite him to now. Excuse me, but it is not quarrelling time now".

Kagenobu was fearless.

“Well. I am coming again sometime soon, all of you should prepare. If you have the slightest an unpardonable thing, I come to control all of your".

Kagenobu went away horseback.

In establishing the Kamakura Shogunate, Minamoto Yoritomo dispatched the samurai to his ruling place and set up land stewards and governors. Though he held the ruling area, it was not the whole country, but the eastern area from Kinki, and in addition it was out of the territory of the temple.
However, the quarrel in the boundary happened consistently when a land steward was installed next door of the territory of the temple.
