- Additional Information
Amaterasu Omikami, the Great Divinity Illuminating Heaven, is the principal female deity of Japanese Shinto mythology. She was assigned to rule the High Celestial Plain, or the Takamagahara. Her younger brother, Susanoo No Mikoto, deeply offended her with his many misdeeds, and caused her to hide herself in a cave, leaving the universe in darkness and chaos. However, she was drawn out of the cave by the merrymaking of the other divinities, causing her to restore order. Her great-grandson became the first emperor, Jimmu.
