Susanoo (see Takegami), son of the creators of Japan, Izanami and Izanagi, sets off accompanied by his rabbit assistant Akahana (Red-Nose) to rescue his dead mother, who has gone to the Underworld. After defeating a giant fish and a fire monster, he then witnesses the story of the Sun Goddess Amaterasu, who hides in a cave and needs to be lured out. Falling in love with the earthly princess Kushinada, he discovers that she is to be sacrificed to Orochi, an eight-headed serpent that returns once each year to raid her parents' village until placated by a human sacrifice. All three of these tales are adapted from chapters of the Nihon Shoki, an 8th-century chronicle that links the historical emperors with the Japanese gods and demigods, though much of the mythical meaning was lost in the transition to the American kiddie-film. Orochi would also appear in Blue Seed and Yamato Takeru. Note also a rare anime score for Ifukube, better known as the composer for the Godzilla films.
