After their birth Izanagi and Izanami stood on the floating bridge of heaven and stirred the primeval ocean with a jeweled spear.

They created many gods and goddesses to represent the mountains, valleys, waterfalls, streams, winds, and other natural features of Japan.

Minne’s themes are protection, love, luck, devotion and unity. Her symbols are the linden tree, cups, and beer. Minne is a German Goddess of love and fertility. Her name – meaning ‘remembrance’ – was applied to a special cup for lovers in this part of the world.

Funa Yurei are said to be the souls of drowning victims. Bitter and wrathful towards the living, they rise up from the bottom of the sea to attack boats. Meeting one on the sea is fatal. They approach people on boats and ask to borrow a ladle. If they are given a ladle, they will pour sea water into the boat until it sinks. If the victims are lucky, they drown, and if they are unlucky they are captured, tortured and eaten by the "Isohime," a giant fantastical mermaid that likes to catch ...

Buruburu Posted on Saturday October 18th, 2014 Today’s yokai is a really simple one! It’s one of the yokai that was clearly invented by Edo period illustrators; in this case, Toriyama Sekien. Those of you familiar with Japanese will know that there are many many more onomatopoeia words in Japanese than in English. Many every day feelings and emotions are described in Japanese using onomatopoeia rather than adjectives, which adds quite a bit to the color of the language. Fear, of course, is no exception to that rule. The “sound” of a chill that runs through your spine is “zo!” This is a word used frequently in connection with scary ghost stories. And the sound of the shivers that overtake your body when you feel scared is “buruburu.” Which of course is the name of today’s yokai!

Oceanus (/oʊˈsiːənəs/; Greek: Ὠκεανός Ōkeanós, pronounced [ɔːkeanós]) was a divine figure in classical antiquity, believed by the ancient Greeks and Romans to be the divine personification of the sea , an enormous river encircling the world.

This statue of a Greek god is part of the Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi), a very famous landmark in Rome. But who was Oceanus?
Oceanus was a divine personification of the World Ocean, an enormous river encircling the world. This world-ocean was personified as a Titan, a son of Uranus and Gaea. Oceanus consort is Tethys, and from their union came the ocean nymphs. In Titanomachy, Oceanus, along with Prometheus and Themis, did not take the side of his fellow Titans against the Olympians, but instead withdrew from the conflict. Oceanus also refused to side with Cronus in the latter's revolt against their father, Uranus.

In Greek mythology, the Naiads (Ancient Greek: Ναϊάδες) were a type of water nymph (female spirit) who presided over fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of fresh water. They are distinct from river gods, who embodied rivers, and the very ancient spirits that inhabited the still waters of marshes, ponds and lagoon-lakes, such as pre-Mycenaean Lerna in the Argolid.
