In Japanese mythology, Izanami is a goddess of both creation and death, as well as the former wife of the god Izanagi. As I got an order from art director to draw her in part of death so I drew her standing in the Yomi ( Hell ) covering with blood.

What is Jigoku?
AkahaiShora's avatar
Isn't the name of Hell Jigoku? I thought Yomi was the world of the honored Ancestors

I don't know what Jigpku means but Yomi is a horrible place where the dead suffer from their past deeds.

Both are kind of hell...

I think that Jigoku was introduced with Buddhist beliefs, because it's a place where souls are getting punished, and there are demons living there.. also there are jigoku-e paintings in Buddhist temples..
whereas Yomi was in the original creation myth, so it could be more of a Shinto belief. underworld or something.
but that's just a thought

I checked my notes from a lecture at college (i'm studying japanese and asian folklore) .. it says about asian shamanism that the concept of hell that punishes souls and makes people suffer for their bad deeds appeared after the introduction of Buddhism.(so this could be Jigoku) and in the original myths there is an underworld where souls of the dead,spirits, yokai, demons, snakes etc. live. (this could be Yomi)
and since in many asian culture, all kinds of religion are mixed together, these two got mixed up as well.
but in general Jigoku is referred to as hell (like in shiken jigoku= exam hell)
sorry about blabbing :D :D
