Title
proc [Akigui no ushi no kami](Kojiki)
Text A kami produced when Izanagi threw down an item of personal clothing. According to an "alternate writing" describing this incident in Nihongi, the deity was created from the formal trousers (mihakama) that Izanagi discarded as he left his deceased wife Izanami at the Even Pass of Yomi. Izanagi then went to another place where he performed ablutions.

   Kojiki, on the other hand, records that the kami was produced when Izanagi flung down his headdress, one of the twelve objects he removed in order to perform ablutions at Awakihara near Tachibana in Hyūga of Tsukushi (Kyushu).
