HINA-IKA

Lady of the Fish, with amazingly useful hair.

Her brother MAUI used it to make a net to pull the sun to where he wanted it. Her husband IRA-WARU, a merman, used her hair for his fishing nets.

Being so fine and silvery, her hair also supplies the threads for Moonrays.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Hina-ika graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Hina-ika movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Hina-ika statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Hina-ika. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
