Japanese Mythology
Daruma Netsuke The Japanese culture and arts have been strongly influenced by a wide-spread belief in ghosts, demons and supernatural spirits. The roots of Japanese mythology are in the Shinto religion, in Taoism and in Zen Buddhism alike.
Daruma and Japanese Mythology
is the founder of Zen Buddhism in Japan (552 AD). Originally an Indian priest named Bodhidharma, he crossed all over China to introduce Buddhism in Japan. The legend says that he crossed the sea from China to Japan standing on a bamboo. Daruma is mostly shown in a position of meditation. He is said to have lost the use of his arms and legs by meditating for nine years in a cave. Therefore he is often shown as Daruma doll without legs and arms. The Daruma dolls, or today simply called

A Little Word On Japanese Mythology....
This section is meant as a bit of a help to me and to you. If you visit this section, that means I don't need to write in brackets an explanation of what I mean every time I use a Japanese term.
A note on the four worlds
According to Japanese mythology, their are four worlds: Reikai, the spirit world, a sort of Heaven, if you will, Ningenkai, the human world, Makai, the demon world and Meikai, which is essentially Hell. Reikai rules over and governs the Ningenkai and collects and processes the souls of humans who die so that they can be reborn. Meikai use to perform the same function for the Makai, but according to Yu Yu Hakusho, a long time ago, Enma Daiou sealed away the realm of Meikai when the king of Meikai, Yakumo, tried to invade the Ningenkai. Now, demons are judged alongside humans by the Reikai.
The premise of the Yu Yu Hakusho story is that there are gateways or portals between these worlds, namely the Makai and Ningenkai and that there are detectives, reikai tantei, employed by the Reikai to stop unauthorized crossings between the worlds.
A word on demons
Unlike demons in western mythology, Japanese demons can be either good or evil depending on their mood. There are many different words for demons and each have seperate meanings and connotations, but, since the context I'm using is Yu Yu Hakusho, I will use the word youkai.

NINIGI Grandson of Amaterasu, sent to rule the earth, the ancestorof all the Japanese emperors. Back to World Mythology Home Page.
AJI-SUKI-TAKA-HI-KONE One of several thunder gods. Born noisy, he grew up even noisier, and so they carry him up and down a ladder to quiet him. That is why you can hear him receding and approaching. AMA-NO-UZUME Fertility goddess. A companion of Ninigi, she performed a bawdy dance hoping to entice the sun out of hiding. This dance symbolizes the planting of seed which waits for the sun come after winter. AMATERASU Sun goddess, ruler of the heavens. When her great enemy, the storm god Susa-No-Wo, destroyed her fine palace, Amaterasu went to hide in a cave. The other gods used all their magical tricks to get her to come out, to no avail. In her absence, darkness and demons ruled the earth until Ama-No-Usume lured Amaterasu out of the cave with a trick. With a comical and obscene dance, he made the gods gathered at the mouth of the cave laugh. When Amaterasu asked what was going on, Ama-No-Uzume replied that they had found another and better sun goddess. Amaterasu peeped out of her cave and saw her own reflection in a mirror which Ama-No-Uzume had hung on a nearby tree. Fascinated, Ameratasu drew a little closer for a better look, and the gods grabbed her and hauled her out. AMATSU MIKABOSHI "August Star of Heaven." God of evil.

Amaterasu is the name of the Sun-Goddess in Japanese mythology. Her emblem is the mirror, and she has a crow as a messenger which she considers to be sacred. Here you will read about her adventures. Amaterasu Disappears Amaterasu Creates New Goddesses Once a holy man made a vow with Amaterasu that he would keep his heart pure, the Sun goddess broke his sword into three pieces and washed them in the well of Heaven. She ate the broken pieces, and when Amaterasu exhaled, three goddesses were born from her breath. She commanded the three goddesses to help with political affairs.
