Wazurainoushi

Wazurainoushi (和豆良比能宇斯能神 – Master Miasma) was the fourth of 12 Shinto kami born from Izanagi removing items from his body after wanting to wash and cleanse himself after visiting Yomi. This kami was formed from his Mantle and this is all related in the Kojiki.1

The Nihongi calls this kami Wadzurahi and states they were the third of five born from the clothes of Izanagi.2
