Pop culture references[edit]

I move the section on pop culture to a proper article, this is for the discussion of Shinto religious figures and not pop references. See: Shinto (pop culture) Takashi Ueki (talk) 05:05, 6 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cause of death[edit]

Just wondered whether you thought the following article would make for inclusion somewhere in this article: Pubmed. "The death of Izanami, an ancient Japanese goddess: an early report of a case of puerperal fever."GiollaUidir 12:17, 15 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Vandalism of this page[edit]

I think you should make this page semi-protected from vandalism because I had to remove a major peice of vandalism & restore the page to how it was before. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:02, 21 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Protection is only necessary when vandalism is ongoing, whereas here it was a one-off instance. --DrHacky 02:56, 22 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Isn't there more to this story?[edit]

I've read several different versions of Izanagi and Izanami, but they all end after Izanami declares that she'll kill 1000 people each day. To which Izanagi would create 1500 people if she does so. But I could've sworn there was more to this story, like one of the goddesses managed to become the mediator between the two of them, and something else I fail to recall. Am I crazy or was there truly more to the story (and I'm not counting Izanagi purging his body, and thus creating Susano-o and the others). Neo Guyver (talk) 23:31, 24 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Popular Culture[edit]

I want to make sure I got the reference in Persona 4 right, is it? I can't read Japanese, and the North American version doesn't come out until December 9th. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tman7776 (talkcontribs) 18:16, 11 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Everything you say is true, so yes, you are correct. Neo Guyver (talk) 03:00, 14 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm removing most of the Popular Culture entry, because the game won't be out in America for several more months, and it'd be a shame people to stumble upon the end-game revelations unawares. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:24, 19 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is this still believed?[edit]

I am under the impression most Japanese seem to accept the evolutionary theory, but I'm not sure. Brutannica (talk) 21:50, 8 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I am a bit confused by this sentence: one hiro is approximately 182 cm, so the "eight-hiro-palace" would have been 14.56 m². I realize that 8 * 182 cm = 14.56 m (without square!). An eight-hiro-palace should then have an area of 14.56 * 14.56 m² = 212 m², no? bamse (talk) 01:11, 9 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I take it the relevent detail is that the palace would be 128-tatami in size. That is, (8*1.82)^2 / (1.82*(1.82 / 2)). A modestly large hall, not incomparable to the castles in Japan. Cesiumfrog (talk) 07:22, 9 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Kojiki section says Citation needed?[edit]

I'd like to know if that's real, if it is then all the pieces are there to interpret Izanami as a Sophia figure.

Thing is it arguably is not compatible with also including the Underworld story.--JaredMithrandir (talk) 01:42, 15 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The myth of Izanami is similar to the legend of Orpheus in Greek mythology. Let's add that. Kinpa9383 (talk) 12:07, 18 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

hate speech[edit]

I love Japan, but I deny discrimination by Japanese people. Japanese gods have never been worshiped in Korea. The god Izanami has never been the origin of the Korean language. This is discriminatory and should be corrected Kinpa9383 (talk) 12:16, 18 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
