Amaterasu OmikamiProfileHangul아마테라스 오오미카미RomajaAmaterasu OomikamiGenderFemaleRaceGodWebtoonDebutChapter 134 (mentioned)Amaterasu Omikami (아마테라스 오오미카미, Amateraseu oomikami) is a Japanese tribal goddess along with Izanagi.[1] She's the sun goddess from japanese creation myths. [2]

The word amaterasu literally means "shining in heaven," and ōmikami means "great goddess." Therefore, Chamberlain's "heaven-shining-great-august-deity" is a more accurate translation of amaterasu ōmikami than the more common "sun goddess." The Nihongi states that her earlier name was Amaterasu Ōhirume no Muchi. Muchi is a suffix used for a respected person or a deity. According to Origuchi, ōhirume means "wife of the sun," not the sun itself. In Japanese, hi means "spirit" as well as "sun," and me means "woman" as well as "wife." Some confusion has resulted from this problem of multiple meanings. It seems that originally the name of this deity meant "great spirit woman," but later the hi was misinterpreted as "the sun," and eventually this deity came to be called the sun goddess. While hundreds of rituals have been retained at the Ise shrine where Amaterasu has been deified, none of them is related to the sun. This fact supports the above statement that amaterasu did not mean "sun goddess."

Amaterasu omikami (Tensho daijin) is a humanized Shinto god in Japanese. In "Engishiki (List of Official Shrines)," "Amaterasu" of Amaterasu Omikami is cited as "Amateru" when worshipped as the god of nature.

Masahiro YASUOKA (1898-1983), the founder of Kinkei Gakuin (1926), said that the Japanese people worshipped Amaterasu Omikami. Amaterasu omikami represents the ideal of the Japanese spirit to cover the world with the rays of the sun. The "Izana" of "Izanami" and "Izanagi," which means "to lead," also represents an ideal of the Japanese people who set an example for other peoples in the world as leaders, forerunners and originators.
