Promotional Information

Like a supernatural Senate, Japanese gods often gather in the dry bed of the Heavenly River. Too numerous to count, they are known collectively as yaoyorozu-no-kamigami-the eight million-and are the cast of a vast, complex mythology that encompasses two religions, three cultures, and three millennia, one whose ancient deities are still hard at work today.

About the Author
