Japanese Volcano God

Also known as Oanomochi

Deity of the crater at Mount Fuji

One of the Yama-no-Kami, he is in charge of the crater of Fuji-san. That makes him a Crater God rather than a Creator God.

Beware! Mount Fuji is a volcanic mountain. Do not irritate O-Ana-Mochi or leave trash on his nice clean mountain. If he gets angry, he might well explode.
