Long ago, all elements mixed together with one germ of life.
This single germ then caused a muddy ocean to cover the entire earth.
The ocean then plummeted into the sky and created a god.
The last two gods it made, were named Izanagi and Izanami. They were remarkable.
This god grew lonely, and decided to make other gods.
Izanagi thrusted his spear into the ocean, creating many islands.
Izanagi and Izanami decided to marry and have children
The first child was filled with beauty, too much that the gods decided she was too beautiful for Japan, so they put her in the sky to become the sun.
The second child became the moon
The third child was disruptive and not fit for them, so they put him in the sea where he became the storm.
