(Deity)AME-NO-HOHI

In a nutshell ...
God of :
Religion : Shinto
Attributes : coming soon ...

One of five Gods created from the beads of Amaterasu by Susano during their sibling create-off.

After Prince big ears bottled the task of descending to earth to whip the roudy humans into shape the job went to Ame-no-hohi. This, thought the god who hoardes thoughts, was a good idea.

Unfortunately the mortals welcomed him with open arms and in no time at all he was pissed and lauding it up. After three years the Gods sent Ame-no-hohi's son, Mikumanoushi, to get an update... and he was never seen or heard from again. Oh dear.

Finally the Gods armed Ama-Waka-Hiko with a sacred bow and arrows and sent him to earth to find Mikumanoushi, who had been sent to find Ame-no-hohi, who had been sent to organise earthly affairs. How difficult can it be?

See Ama-Waka-Hiko.
