quote
... a type of omamori, or Japanese amulet of the Shinto religion. Its purpose is to promote good health and to help those with illnesses and protect the family.

Literally, kanai anzen means
"Please keep my family from harm,"
and you can see this written upon ema votive plaquets as well as omamori suzu (bells). In the form of an omamori and suzu, this prayer is carried on one's person.

門の梅家内安全と咲にけり
kado no ume kanai anzen to saki ni keri

plums at the gate
praying for the well-being of the family
with their blossoms . . .

This hokku has the cut marker KERI at the end of line 3.


a plum tree blooms
by the gate, protecting
the family from harm

Tr. Chris Drake

This hokku was written in the 2nd month (March) of 1816, when Issa was living back in his hometown. In Issa's diary there is no headnote, but in some later versions a headnote is attached: "Congratulations on your new house." The language indicates that Issa is sending felicitations to someone who has just moved into a new house. Apparently Issa later used this hokku to congratulate someone else.

In Issa's time epidemics, disasters, and early death were more common than today, and people often made prayers at shrines and temples in order to protect family members against sickness, accidents, and other harm. Amulets that claimed to be able to ensure family wellness and safety were also extremely popular. Issa, however, looks not to amulets but to the vigorous blooming of a plum tree by the gate of one house. The strength or perhaps the ki, the spiritual energy, of the healthy, robustly blooming tree, the hokku suggests, will surely help the family living in the house avoid illness and harm and live long, happy lives.
