The Tongue-cut Sparrow or as I call the story, Sparrow’s Giftis a Japanese folktale that tells much about the Shinto beliefs, which are ancient, very ancient, and unwritten. The oldest records are from pieces of pottery showing birds, who were the Tarii spirits. The vital force is Komi, which is in all nature, everything is alive even rocks. To walk through the gate, Shinto - the medicine way, one must wash and then call the spirits. The ancients from 2,000 AD and earlier called this the Honey Way.
