Izanagi and Izanami
The Beginning
Izanagi and Izanami
Earth was just water, no land
Izanagi and Izanami formed an island, and built a palace on the island
They left heaven to live on the island
Izanami died giving birth to the god of fire
Izanagi sliced the god of fire into 3 pieces, then followed Izanami into Yomi (underworld)
Izanami didn't welcome him, told him to leave
