storm of Summer Picture

Susano-o

In Japanese mythology, Susanoo, the powerful storm of Summer, is the brother of Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun, and of Tsukuyomi, the god of the moon. All three were spawned from Izanagi, when he washed his face clean of the pollutants of Yomi, the underworld. Amaterasu was born when Izanagi washed out his left eye, Tsukuyomi was born from the washing of the right eye, and Susanoo from the washing of the nose.

"Susanoo" (須佐之男) is the shortened form that appears in Nihon Shoki. In Kojiki, his name is written in long forms, which includes Takehaya Susanoo-no-Mikoto (建速須佐之男命).
