Daily Guiltless Pleasure
Now, Thelma Balfour, the author who brought you "Black Sun Signs, " presents a light-hearted and illuminating look at relationship, love, and sex under the stars. Her feuding with Susanoo, her uncontrollable brother, however, is equally infamous and appears in several tales. One story tells about Susanoo's wicked behavior toward Izanagi, who, tired of Susanoo's repeated complaints, banishes him to Yomi.
Susanoo grudgingly acquiesces, but has first to attend some unfinished business.

He goes to Takamagahara "heaven" to bid farewell to his sister, Amaterasu. Amaterasu knows that her unpredictable brother does not have good intentions and is prepared for battle. But she does not believe him and requests a contest for proof of his good faith. A challenge is set as to who can bring forth more noble and divine children. Amaterasu creates three women from Susanoo's sword, while Susanoo makes five men from Amaterasu's ornament chain.

Amaterasu claims the title to the five attributed to Susanoo. Both gods declare themselves to be victorious. Amaterasu's insistence in her claim drives Susanoo to violent campaigns that reach their climax when he hurls a half- flayed pony an animal sacred to Amaterasu into Amaterasu's weaving hall and causes the death of one of her attendants. Amaterasu, angered by the display, hides in the cave called Iwayado. As the sun goddess disappears into the cave, darkness covers the world. All of the gods and goddesses strive to coax Amaterasu out of the cave, but she ignores them all.
Finally, the kami of merriment, Ame-no-Uzume , hatches a plan. She places a large bronze mirror on a tree, facing Amaterasu's cave. Then, Uzume clothes herself in flowers and leaves, overturns a washtub and begins to dance upon it, drumming the tub with her feet.

Finally, Uzume sheds the leaves and flowers and dances naked. All of the male gods roar with laughter, and Amaterasu becomes curious. When she peeks outside, a ray of light called "dawn" escapes and Amaterasu is dazzled by the beautiful goddess that she sees, this being her own reflection in the mirror. The god, Ameno-Tajikarawo, pulls her from the cave, which is sealed with a shimenawa.
Surrounded by merriment, Amaterasu's depression disappears, and she agrees to return with her light. Uzume is then known as the kami of dawn as well as of mirth. Susanoo, exiled from heaven, comes to Izumo Province now part of Shimane Prefecture. It is not long before he meets an old man and an old woman sobbing beside their daughter. The old couple explain that they originally had eight daughters who were devoured, one after the other, by the dragon, Yamata no Orochi "eight-forked serpent", who is said to originate from Koshi—now Hokuriku region.
The terrible dragon had eight heads and eight tails, stretched over eight hills, and is said to have eyes as red as good wine. Susanoo, who knew about the old couple's relation to Amaterasu, offers his assistance in return for their beautiful daughter's hand in marriage. The parents accept, and Susanoo transforms Kushinada into a comb and hides her safely in his hair.
The fence has eight gates, with eight tables placed at each gate and eight casks placed on each table. Each cask is filled with eight-times-brewed rice wine. Orochi arrives and finds his path blocked. After boasting about his prowess, he finds that he cannot get through the barrier. His keen sense of smell takes in the sake—which Orochi loves—and the eight heads are now faced with a problem. They want to drink the delicious sake, yet the fence blocks access to the sake. One head suggests that they simply smash the barrier, but that would knock over the sake.
Another proposed that they combine their fiery breath and burn the fence to ash, but then the sake would evaporate. The heads begin to search for an opening. They find the hatches, and, eager for the sake, they wish to poke their heads through to drink it. Yet, the eighth head, which is the wisest, warns his brethren about the folly of such an act and volunteers to go through first to ensure that all is well. Susanoo waits for his chance. He allows the head to drink some sake in safety and to report to the others that there is no danger.
All eight heads plunge through the hatches and greedily drink every drop of the sake. As the heads finish, Susanoo launches his attack on Orochi. Drunken from drinking so much sake, the great serpent is no match for the spry Susanoo who decapitates and slays Orochi. A nearby river is said to have turned red with the blood of the defeated serpent.
As Susanoo cuts the dragon into pieces, he finds an excellent sword from a tail of the dragon that his sword had been unable to cut. This sword was to feature prominently in many other tales. It is found in Kojiki but not recorded in the "Nihongi". They started out of their homeland of Izumo headed for the neighboring province, with Okuninushi brought along to follow and carry the luggage of his more eminent brothers.
The brothers encountered a rabbit who had been flayed by crocodile-fish, usually interpreted as sharks and lay in agony upon a sea shore. In a wicked-hearted gesture, they advised the rabbit to bathe in the briny sea and blow himself dry in the wind. The rabbit found himself in worse agony.
To this land they dispatched various members of their own kind to subjugate it. Amaterasu had decreed her own grandson Ninigi to rule over the terrestrial world, but the terrestrial gods kuni-tsu-kami were not altogether willing to hand it over, and odd sorts of terrestrial gods were still lurking about making it too dangerous.
Some of the gods first appointed to quell the middle world were derelict in their mission, or joined leagues with the terrestrial gods. After several false starts, two gods were finally successful. The mirror was to be worshipped as a representation of Amaterasu. A number of deities were made to make the descent at this time. Ninigi met Konohanasakuya-hime symbol of flowers , the daughter of Yamatsumi master of mountains , and they fell in love.
Ninigi asked Yamatsumi for his daughter's hand. The father was delighted and offered both of his daughters, Iwanaga symbol of rocks and Sakuya symbol of flowers. However, Ninigi married only Sakuya and refused Iwanaga. Consequently, Ninigi and his descendants became mortal. Sakuya conceived by a night and Ninigi doubted her. To prove legitimacy of her children, Sakuya swore by her luck and took a chance; she set fire to her room when she had given birth to her three babies. By this, Ninigi knew her chastity.
The names of the children were Hoderi, Hosuseri and Ho w ori. Ninigi's elder son Hoderi or "Fire-Shine" had the gift of the bounty of the sea, and gained his livelihood by fishing and bore the nickname Umisachihiko or "Luck of the Sea". The younger son Hoori or "Fire-Fade" had the gift of the bounty of the mountains, and was a hunter and nicknamed Yamasachihiko or "Luck of the Mountains". One day, Luck of the Mountains asked his elder brother Luck of the Sea to exchange their tools and swap places for a day.
He wanted to try his bid at fishing. But he did not catch a single fish, and worse, he lost his borrowed fishhook.
