So essentially, I’m here to discuss being the Caretaker of the Japanese Mythologies, AKA Shintoism. While I’m certain some of you heard of Shintoism (lit: Way Of The Gods), or have heard of Amaterasu and Susano-o (looking at you Naruto fans). I will explain the basics.
In the views of Shintoism, Japan is the first nation to rise, created by the twin head deities Izanagi and Izamani. A bunch of kami (Japanese word for gods , Kami is plural, Shin is singular like the big G) were born. Amaterasu and Susanoo are born, Izanagi gives authority to Amaterasu, which makes Susanoo upset and destructive. Amaterasu is then the ancestress of Emperor Jimnin which is the first Emperor of Japan, making all Emperors apparently the ancestor of Amaterasu. The kami live in the Great Heavens, except Susanoo
Certain Japanese Bloodlines are direct ancestors of the kami,
The Great Heavens are directly connected to Itsukushima island.
Taking a page out of SM’s book, The Kami (Major Ones) are NPC
Shrines act as portals for the Kami and their descendants around the world
Buddism and Shintoism are exclusively separate (meaning no Son Wukong)
I am open to discussion
