These are very busy Kami who deal with toilets and the associated bodily functions. If you are having trouble with your plumbing, give them a call.
According to legend, the Kawaya-no-Kami were born from the bodily wastes of creator gods Izanagi and Izanami, which fell down to Earth with a cosmic splat. You’d better believe that deities poop — and their holy excrement can produce miracles.
The Kawaya-no-Kami also look after gynecological diseases, optical care and dentistry. We just hope they scrub up first.
