Tokoyo (常世の国 – Everworld) is a mythological land mentioned in the kojiki. The area is said to have cockerals which were gathered by Omoikane as one of the various ways to try and coax Amaterasu out of the Heavenly Rock Cave after she hides inside of it.
This mythical paradise is said to also be full of Immortals and be covered in golden orange orchards. It is said to be located ‘across the sea.’1
