Day 1 of the Month of the Boar, 1158
It seems I joined an organization bent on removing your grace from me. The world as a whole even… For this I am sorry and wish to work towards stopping this group of people. All of them from various clans and positions within simply seeking to gain power for their own ends. This is unacceptable. No single clan nor group of clans should ever seek to disrupt the mandate of heaven. The last time this occurred should have left evidence of such hubris…
I feel that my family is in need of protection from itself now. There seems to be an individual in my family who has found Kansai’s Last Wish and is using it to keep martial law over my entire clan. This is an item that needs to be cherished and kept safe from the world as a whole. The power it possess is too great for anyone to use wisely I fear…
I am truly at a loss for what it is that this era is facing. The divine wrath of an angry God? The retribution of honored dead? No, this is the corruption of our own failings. Ever fervent within the heart of all, biting at the walls we create in a vain attempt to staunch the inner darkness we all face.
Kasai Kamisama, I beseech you now more than ever, grant me your wisdom. I beg for your strength to overcome these obstacles.
Your eternal friend and humble servant, Isawa Ito.
