Goddess Kamui Fuchi


Kamui Fuchi is the Japanese deity of the hearth.

Kamui Fuchi is the Ainu people of Japan's ancestress and tribe mother.

As the fire of the hearth, she protects the portal between the natural and spiritual worlds, insisting that it never be totally extinguished.

When her petitioners feed her rice, mugwort, and beer, she defends them from bad spirits as the "Lady of the Home."
