JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY

The Shinto and Buddhist Gods of Japan...

EMMA-O

Japanese God

King of Japanese Hell

He lives the good life in a large castle covered in gold, silver, pearls and jewels.

His judgment is relatively simple. If you have killed an innocent human being, you go into a cauldron full of molten metal. That’s it really.

However, there is a get-out clause. If, after your crime, you made a pilgrimage to all thirty-three shrines of KWANNON, you may be excused metabolism.
