Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning, there was darkness and in the midst of darkness there was a swirling mass in the shape of an enormous egg.
  • The enormous egg had a light and smooth half while the other half was hard and dense. Because the parts were opposites they separated by IN (light and smooth) and became the heavens while YO (hard and dense) descended and became the Earth.
  • As the enormous egg was separated, there were Izanagi and Izanami the first gods of Earth. Izanagi saw a jewel tipped spear next to him and so what Izanagi thrust his jewel tipped spear into the water and it's droplets became enormous mountains.
  • They ascended to the mountains above and when they were there they decided to marry. So they strolled around the Earth twice to receive perfection and once they met on the other side of the world's axle they would marry.
  • Izanami had many children including the many islands of Japan. One of their children was sent to the heavens to rule and another was sent to accompany her. They became the moon and the sun.
  • Izanami's last child was the god of fire and it burnt her to death. In despair izanagi became depressed and descended to a creek below where he would stay forever.
