Amaterasu is the beautiful and brilliant Japanese Goddess of the Sun. She is looked up to by all the gods and goddesses. Of all the religions currently practiced, only the Shinto religion chief divinity is female - Amaterasu. In the Shinto religion, Amaterasu is honored as the ruler of all deities, as the guardian of the Japanese people, and as a symbol of Japanese culture unity. Her rising sun still flies on the Japanese flag. Until the end of World War II the Japanese Imperial family claimed they were descended from her.
Amaterasu gives us the gift of light. With this light she can watch over us, and keep us safe. Without her we would be living in a world of darkness, cruelty and uncertainty. She is the Goddess of the Sun, but also of the universe. The name Amaterasu derived from Amateru meaning "shining in heaven." The meaning of her whole name, Amaterasu-ōmikami, is "the great God who shines in the heaven.
