67. Joganden moon (Joganden no tsuki)

The princely courtier Minamoto no Tsunemoto (894-961 AD) was known for his poetry, but was also a skilled archer. One night in 932 near Joganden, a building in the Kyoto palace garden, he supposedly shot a demonic deer that was about to attack the Emperor. He also played an important part in suppressing Taira no Masakado's rebellion against the Emperor, for which he received the title Chinjufu-Shogun (Commander of the Garrison). (December 1888)
