Once upon a time, a man was dozing off at a temple in Kyoto one summer night when he was awakened by a voice calling to him. There was a huge black bird. Its eyes shone like lights, its wings were flapping and its cry sounded like a human voice. The elder told him that it was probably a dead body brought into the temple that had turned into a bird.
