TitleKagutsuchi
テキスト内容Other names: Kagutsuchi no mikoto, Hinoyagihayao no kami, Hinokagabiko no kami (Kojiki), Ho musuhi (Nihongi).



The kami of fire or hi no kami. According to Kojiki and an "alternate writing" transmitted by Nihongi, Izanami suffered mortal burns when giving birth to this kami. Upon Izanamis death, Izanagi was enraged and cut up the deity with his sword, whereupon Takemikazuchi and other deities were produced from the blood on his sword. Still other deities were produced from Kagutsuchis body, and their names all included the element yamatsumi, thus indicating their relation to mountains.
