When she made The fire god she died of a fever.Izanagi was so upset that he followed her to the underworld. When he saw Izanami she was a rotting corpse. Izanagi was chased out of the underworld by demons and devils. He put a giant boulder in between the underworld and himself. Izanagi swore she would kill 1,000 people.

The germ mixedaround until the heavy part sank and the light part rose. Then a muddy sea covered the Earth. Then a god grewand he was lonely so he created more gods. The last two gods he made was Izanagi and Izanami. One day theywere walking along and they wondered what is below the ocean. Then Izanami stabbed his spear into the oceanand chunks of mud fell off as the Islands of Japan. Then they went to explore and they found all types of plants.When they met again they married and created the moon,sun, and storms in the oceans. Why these stories are still important to Japan today These stories continue to be important in Japan because they are a part of religion. They are sacred stories and since they don't have any other reason for how Japan was created that there is a completely logical explanation to them and their religion. History of Japanese Castles and a famous and modern example Religion: Politics: Japanese castles were used as early as the 15th century and were used for military bases and fortresses. During the Nara Period a Japanese Castle was built for defense of Kyushu. The castle had a moat, but that was only filled during attacks. Although the castle used a lot of stone, it was primarily made up of wood. The castles have guardtowers that prevent enemies from sneaking in and have gates that are placed 90 degrees of each other so that it hasa little inner yard that is well guarded from above and below. The Azuchi castle had walls with a thickness ranging from18-21 feet in thickness not height. The castle had a high central castle that was really high up so they could have a good view of the intruders coming in, since they are so high up and have a good view they can snipe down the intruders before they get to the castle. The castle was built on a mountain which was surrounded by vegetation whichcould be used as cover.since the castle is on a mountain it is harder to get to because the enemies have to climb up the mountain to get to them. The castle was destroyed by when the castle was attacked it was set aflame although some written accounts say that it was looters or townspeople who burned down the castle. The Osaka castle is used as a HQ for the Japanese Imperial Army until the public funded for the construction of a new HQ that is within the short distance of the high tower of the castle. During the World War II castles were intentionally bombed to lower morale and destroy. Geography: Why earthquakes occur and how they have affected Japanese life. There was a Japanese earthquake called the great kanto earthquake. This earthquake killed over a 100,000 people. Earthquakes occur from stress that builds up as the faults try to move and eventually one of the faults moves over the other one and creates an earthquake. The Japanese government makes sure that Japan is not affected by the earthquake by taking safety measures seriously. The government has made the buildings stronger and has said that all the households should have a safety kit and food and water to last a few days. Japan sits on a fault line, which is why their are lots of earthquakes in Japan. Historic and modern examples of earthquakes in Japan The Tōhoku earthquake occurred in 2011 that measured a 9.0 on the richter scale which is very massive earthquake. Over 100,000 buildings were destroyed and lots of people died. In 599 a.d. the Yamato Province earthquake took place destroying several buildings. The earthquakes managed to cause tsunamis and it hit a nuclear plant which caused it to get radiation everywhere. Culture Part 1: History of Japanese Gardens and how Japanese Gardens are relevant to the modern world. The garden have symbolization for example, there is a water basin known as the Japanese gardens first appeared on the Japanese island Honshu and the gardens are made to capture landscape in its true form. The Japanese gardens were based off of the Chinese garden which they were so inspired by that they decided to make their own gardens. When the Japanese make the garden they have to follow the a bunch of rules. You have to make sure your garden looks natural. Keep the garden simple. Have odd numbers of flowers and plants. In Japanese gardens a lot of the things in deer chaser that chases the deer away with a noise that it makes when it fills up. Famous and well-known examples of Japanese Gardens. One well known example is the Kenrokuen which is a beautiful garden that has a variety of rivers and ponds. This garden was opened to the public in 1870. The name Kenrokuen means Garden of Six Sublimities. This is significant because it is has spaciousness, seclusion, artificiality, antiquity, abundant water, and broad views, which according to the Chinese Landscape Theory are the six essential tributes to make the ultimately perfect garden. Another well known example of Japanese gardens is Kokedera. Kokedera means moss temple. This is significant because in the Kokedera garden there was over 120 different types of moss. One more well known example of Japanese gardens is the Korakuen. This garden was suffering from flooding from the bombing in the war but was kept in perfect position due to the gardens designers. Culture Part 2: History of origami and how origami is relevant to the modern world. Famous and well-known examples of origami. Origami began when the monks brought paper into Japan in the 6th century. Origami was used only for religious ceremonial purposes because paper was to expensive. In China they would burn folded paper at funerals. Origami eventually developed into a form of entertainment. Origami was also used on greeting cards. Origami is relevant to the modern world because it is still used today for many things like entertainment and decoration. Samurai warriors used to exchange origami figures a token of luck or peace. Now people fold thousands of origami cranes and send them to people at hospitals. People also use origami for presenting napkins on dishes. Origami can be relevant to the modern day because it can be thought of as a science. Paper airplanes are science (and origami(you fold objects for it to be considered origami)) because it is a science to figure out how to make them fly a certain angle and have them go a certain speed and distance. One example of origami are action origami which is where you can make part of the model move by moving a different part of the model. Another type of origami is modular origami is where you have a bunch a similar looking pieces that you construct together. One more example of origami is pureland origami where you have to only use valley and mountain folds for making the origami objects.
