Abstract: On May 5th of Jinki (725A.D.), in the Nara Period, the new emperor Shomu and his inner court visited the detached palace of Yoshino. With his inner court were the court poets Kasano Kanamura and Yamabeno Akahito, who presented the emperor with poems in praise of the palace. In his old-fashoned poem In Praise of Yoshino, the traditionally-minded Yamabeno Akahito, employed the unusual expression "aokaki komori"-"aokaki" meaning "a chain of blue mountains like a fence" and "komori" meaning "to shut oneself up in a sanctuary". This paper speculates that this expression is related to Daijo-sai, the most important ceremony enthronement which had been held on Nobember 23rd of the previous year. In the Daijo-sai ceremony, the new emperor shuts himself up in the Daijo Palace and takes a religious meal with his ancestral god, and is thus transformed into the true emperor. I speculate that Yamabeno Akahito used the words "aokaki komori" to symbolize this enthronement ceremony.
