Abeno Seimei, A Powerful Diviner

Abeno Seimei is one of the most famous people in Japan. He was an “onmyo-ji.” 
Onmyo-ji were diviners and experts in astrology. They observed the stars, 
and wrote horoscopes. 
In addition, they were great numerologists and could tell people's fortunes 
and predict future events. 
They could control demons as well.
Abeno Seimei was the most powerful onmyo-ji, and in Japan, there are strange 
legends about him. 
For example, he could see devils, and he could also understand birds' voices. 
Although he was an enigmatic character, he was quite intelligent, 
and so he often aided emperors with his power, 
and influenced public officials and ordinary people.
Long ago, Abeno Seimei's power was believed by many people. 
However, until a dozen years or so ago, he was not as famous as he is today. 
Recently, in Japan, there is great interest in Abeno Seimei. 
Now, his power is believed by many people once again, and he has become very popular. 
There are many novels, comics, and movies in which Abeno Seimei is the main character.
Seimei Shrine is a shrine sacred to Abeno Seimei. This shrine is very popular, 
and every year, it has a lot of visitors. 
Many people visit from distant places in order to pray to Abeno Seimei 
because it is said that if you pray to Abeno Seimei, you can recover from illness 
or injuries by the grace of his enigmatic spirits; you will also be protected 
from various diseases. The shrine's reputation has spread around Japan.
