うつほとは、
古木などにできる虚(うろ)のこと。
宇津保物語には、
北山のうつほで育てられた貴人(あてひと)の男子が、
母に秘曲を授けられ、
やがて都で琴の名手になる、という条がある。
うつほは、音霊にみちている。

"Utsuho," literally "a tree hollow," is a word associated with Utsuho monogataria 10th-century Japanese novel.

It relates the tale of a child of noble background raised in a tree hollow in Kyoto.

As a young boy, he receives songs of esoteric power passed down by his mother.

He grows up to become a master player of the koto, a stringed instrument akin to the harp or zither.

 

Utsuho A hollow filled with magical powers.
