Ōmagatsuhi

Ōmagatsuhi (Great Mishap Bringer – 大禍津日神) is a Shinto kami of calamity, evil occurrences, curses and defilement. They are not mentioned in the nihongi, however, the kojiki states they were the second of two kami born from Izanagi cleansing away the impurities of Yomi whilst bathing in the Tachibana River1.
