1 The Cleansing
2 In the new world a god, Izanaki, and a goddess, Izanami, were born.
3 They created the islands of Japan and the elements.
4 Burned giving birth to Fire God,Izanami departed to the netherworld.
5 Izanaki missed his dead wife and visited her.
6 Despite his wife's insistence that he look away
7 he saw her covered with maggots and 8 thunder gods.
8 You have shamed me.
9 Izanami pursued him with demons.
10 Izanaki escaped the netherworld and sought to cleanse himself.
11 So he went to Awakihara, Himuka in Tsukushi country.
12 As Izanaki disrobed to bathe 12 gods were born.
13 From the impurities of the netherworld 2 gods were born.
14 3 more were born to cleanse those 2.
15 Then 6 sea gods were also born.
16 When he washed his left eye, Sun Goddess Amaterasu was born.
17 Tsukuyomi was born from the right eye and Susanoo from his nose.
18 Delighted by the birth of 3 August gods.
19 He gave Heaven to Amaterasu to reign.
20 Tsukuyomi was given the night and Susanoo ruled the ocean.
21 Susanoo neglected his duties and cried until his beard reached his stomach.
22 Trees died, the rivers and oceans dried up and evil descended.
23 Why do you cry and neglect your domain?
24 I cry because I want to see my dead mother in the netherworld.
25 Then you can no longer be here.
26 Susanoo was exiled by Izanaki.

27 Sun Goddess Amaterasu
28 Heaven was Amaterasu's domain
29 where the exiled Susanoo went on a rampage.
30 Amaterasu was scared and hid in the Heavenly Cave.
31 Darkness covered both Heaven and Earth and evil lurked everywhere.
32 8 million gods of the elements gathered by the nearby river.
33 They conferred and devised a plan.
34 Ameno-uzume stood on an upside-down tub
35 and danced with her breasts bare and pubic hair exposed.
36 Why is she dancing so merrily
37 and all the gods having fun?
38 A god more divine than you has descended.
39 So we're celebrating her arrival.
40 he cave is now sealed so nobody can enter.
41 As Amaterasu came out of the cave
42 the sun shone brightly on Heaven and Earth.
43 The gods ordered Susanoo to gather offerings for redemption.
44 They cut his nails and beard and exiled him from Heaven.

45 Blooming Flowers
46 Amaterasu and Takakinokami had a plan.
47 They told Ninigi to descend to Earth and govern Japan for them.
48 He met a beautiful girl at Cape Kasasa.
49 Who's your father?
50 Great Mountain God is my father. My name is Kamuatatsu,
51 also known as "Flower-on-the-Tree."
52 I'd like you to be my wife. Will you agree?
53 I can't answer you now.
54 You must get permission from my father, Great Mountain God.
55 Her father happily accepted Ninigi's proposal and he also offered
56 his other daughter Eternal-as-Rock.
57 But Ninigi only took Princess Flower-on-the-Tree.
58 He sent back the ugly Eternal-as-Rock.
59 offered both girls with my blessing.
60 By accepting Eternal-as-Rock
61 your family would thrived forever, as strong as a rock in a blizzard.
62 By accepting Flower-on-the-Tree
63 your family would have flourished as I cast a spell on you.
64 But since you only accepted Princess Flower-on-the-Tree
65 your offspring will only live as long as leaves on a tree.
66 Princess Flower-on-the-Tree got pregnant overnight.
67 Ninigi was suspicious.
68 To prove her innocence she gave birth to 3 sons in a burning shack.
69 The first son was Hoderi, He who harvests from the sea.
70 The second son was Hosuseri.
71 And the last was Hoori, He who harvests from the land.

72 Umisachi and Yamasachi
73 Hoderi harvested from the sea and Hoori from the land.
74 Hoori wanted to use his brother's hook and offered him a swap.
75 Hoderi turned him down 3 times then agreed to a loan.
76 But Yamasachi failed to catch any fish and lost the hook.
77 To compensate, he sacrificed his sword to make hundreds of hooks.
78 But Hoderi wanted his own hook back.
79 Hoori cried in despair.
80 The Tide God advised him to visit the Sea God at his palace.
81 Father, there's a noble man at our gate.
82 It's Hoori, Ninigi's youngest son.
83 The Sea God arranged for him to marry his daughter, Toyotama.
84 3 carefree years later Hoori remembered his plight.
85 I've never seen you worry so. Tell me what bothers you.
86 Hoori told his wife his story.
87 The Sea God summoned the fish and asked if they had the lost hook.
88 It was caught in a snapper's throat.
89 Do as I say when you return this to your brother.
90 say "Obochi, Susuchi, Majichi, Uruchi" as you face away.
91 If your brother plowed the high plain you plow the low plain.
92 If he plowed the low plain you plow the high plain.
93 I'll limit his water so his production will drop off in 3 years.
94 If his grudge leads to war
95 use the Tide Crystal to drown him.
96 If he apologized, use the Ebb Tide Crystal to save him.
97 Make sure he suffers.
98 Hoori returned the hook and tormented his brother as instructed.
99 Hoderi fell at his brother's feet and said
100 I shall be your servant forever and protect you day and night.
