Izanagi (イザナギ) Izanagi is the first male, forefather of the gods and god of creation and life. He and his wife,
Izanami were responsible to the birth of many kami and the islands of Japan. When he failed in saving Izanami from the land of the dead, Yomi due to childbirth, he begot Amaterasu from his left eye, Tsukuyomi-no-Mikoto from his right eye and Susanoo-no-Mikoto from his nose after a cleansing ritual after his return from there.
