    Hi Hubbers, seems this is the first discussion in the Shinto forum. I have a small question. I learnt on wikipedia that there are 6 Okami in Shintoism - Amaterasu, Sarutahiko, Izanami, Izanagi, Michikaeshi and Sashikuni. However, I also see Inari and Toyuke addressed as Okami.

    So how many Okami are there in Shintoism?

    Well shortstory I know that there is a saying that there are 8 million Kami. I am inquiring about the number of Okami - great Kami.
