JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY

The Shinto and Buddhist Gods of Japan...

KAMI

Japanese Multi-talented Gods and Goddesses

Gods of Incomprehensible Things

There are over eight million of them, so if you find something you don’t understand, there’s probably a God for it amongst the KAMI. They’re divided into Heavenly Incomprehensibles (AMATSU-KAMI) and Earthly ones (KUNITSU-KAMI) if that’s any help. We find the whole idea pretty incomprehensible ourselves, but we don’t know if there’s a KAMI of KAMI.
