"YAMANOKAMI" (KAMI OF THE MOUNTAIN) IS THE JAPANESE GODDESS OF THE HUNT; SHE IS A SPIRIT OF THE THE SACRED MOUNTAINS AND RULES OVER THE FORESTS, VEGETATION, AGRICULTURE, AND THE MOUNTAINS. THE ANIMALS AND THE BIRDS AND ALL OF PLANT LIFE ARE HER SUBJECTS. WHEN SHE SO CHOOSES, SHE CAN APPEAR AS BEAUTIFUL, PASSIONATE, AND MATERNAL. BUT, SHE ALSO HAS A DARKER FORM, THAT OF A HIDEOUS AND MALICIOUS OLD HAG. IT IS SAID THAT SHE CAN CHANGE BETWEEN THE TWO IN THE FLASH OF AN EYE.

SHE THE ONE WHO BRINGS GOOD LUCK TO HUNTERS AND WOODSMEN WHO ATTEND TO HER RITES. SHE CAN BE QUITE STERN TO THOSE WHO DO NOT. IT IS ALSO SAID THAT SHE HOLDS AN INTENSE JEALOUSY TOWARDS MORTAL WOMEN, SO FIERCE THAT IT IS CONSIDERED TABOO FOR A WOMAN TO STEP FOOT ON HER MOUNTAIN. HER HATRED IS SO INTENSE THAT NEWLY MARRIED MEN HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO BE PROHIBITED FROM ATTENDING THE HUNT...FOR FEAR THEIR THOUGHTS WILL BE ON THEIR NEW BRIDE. WOMEN IN THE VILLAGES STAY INDOORS ON HER SPECIAL DAY...DECEMBER 12TH.

YAMANOKAMI IS AN EXTREMELY ANCIENT GODDESS; SHE IS PROBABLY A SURVIVOR OF THE PRE-AGRICULTURAL AGE. TODAY, HER CULT IS CONFINED BASICALLY ONLY TO THE MOUNTAIN AREAS FOR ONLY THERE CAN THE WILDERNESS STILL BE FOUND.
