Fakone a district in Japan in which there is situated a lake, at the bottom of which the Japanese believe is found a purgatory for children. On the shore of this lake are built five small wooden chapels, in each of which sits a priest beating a gong, and howling a nimanda. Fakone is also the name of a temple in Japan, famous for its relics. It contains the sabres of the heroic Camis (q.v.), still stained with the blood of those slain in battle; the vestments which were said to have been worn by an angel, and which supplied the place of wings; and the tomb of Joritomo, the first secular emperor of the Japanese.
