Project Idea: Gods and Goddesses of Japan

The myths and legends about the gods and goddesses of Japan are full of action and drama!

Research Tip: You will find the gods and goddesses in the Japanese Myth unit of the UnTextbook, and Wikipedia is a great resource: the Japanese Deities article provides an overview, and there are detailed articles for the main divinities like the goddess Amaterasu, her brothers Susanoo and Tsukuyomi. You might also enjoy these books: Gods and Heroes of Old Japan by Violet M. Pasteur and Old-World Japan: Legends of the Land of the Gods by Frank Rinder.
