TitleMikahayahi, Hihayahi
テキスト内容According to Kojiki, when Izanami died as a result of giving birth to the fire kami Kagutsuchi, her consort Izanagi was enraged and beheaded Kagutsuchi with his "ten-span sword." Blood falling on the rocks from the near end of the sword was transformed into the two kami Mikahayahi and Hihayahi. An "alternate writing" transmitted by Nihongi states that the kami were produced from blood dripping from the hilt of Izanagis sword.

The mika in the first kamis name is an abbreviation for miika or "awe-ful," reflecting a mysterious, dreadful nature. The hi of Hihayahi means "fire," and hayahi is a suffix indicating the intense state of a kamis power.
