Shinto Thunder God

Also known as Aji-Suki-Taka-Hiko-Ne, Ajishikitakahikone-No-Kami

Noisy Thunder Child

Such a naughty little godlet. He is always crying and shouting, and his voice is VERY LOUD. When he runs downstairs thunder is coming towards you. When he runs upstairs it recedes.

He is so noisy that sometimes his parents are forced to shove him in a boat and send him sailing off into the distance to get a little peace.

This seems a little harsh. Perhaps he’s just teething. Have they never tried a baby-soother or dummy?
