TitleAwanagi, Awanami
テキスト内容Other names: Awanagi no mikoto(Nihongi)



According to Kojiki, two deities born as a result of a division of rule over rivers and seas by the two kami of the sea-straits, Hayaakitsuhiko and Hayahakitsuhime. Some interpretations vary by identifying the two as offspring of Izanagi and Izanami. According to an "alternate writing" quoted in Nihongi, Awanagi was the offspring of Amenoyorozu no mikoto, and the parent to Izanagi.

The ending nagi is believed to refer to the calm surface of the sea, and thus gentleness, while nami means "waves" and refers to a stormy disturbance of the ocean.
