TitleIwatsutsunoo, Iwatsutsunome
テキスト内容According to Kojiki, one (or one pair) of three kami which came into existence from the blood adhering to the sword with which Izanagi killed the fire deity Kagutsuchi (see also Iwasaku, Nesaku). According to an "alternate writing" describing this event in Nihongi, Izanagi cut Kagutsuchi into three pieces, and the blood which dripped from the point of his sword became variously the one kami Iwatsutsuo, or the pair of kami, Iwatsutsuo and Iwatsutsume. The same pair of kami are also listed in another "alternate writing." Most interpretations of the name Iwatsutsuo suggest it meant a male deity with the hardness of a sword.
