Deluxe Canvas Shinai Bag FUJIN RAIJIN
Canvas Shinai Bag "Fujin Raijin" for Three Shinai


 
FUJIN and RAIJIN were two of the most terrible gods in the Japanese Pantheon, both represented in the famous byoubu (folding screen) painted by Tawaraya Sōtatsu in the sixteenth century.

Fujin is the Japanese god of the wind and one of the eldest Shinto gods. He was present at the creation of the world and when he first let the winds out of his bag, they cleared the morning mists and filled the Gate between Heaven and Earth so the Sun could shine. Depicted as a terrifying dark demon wearing a leopard skin, he brings on his shoulder all the winds in a large bag.

Raijin is the god of thunder and lightning in Japanese mythology. His name is derived from the Japanese words rai (thunder) and shin (god). He is typically depicted as a demon beating drums to create thunder.

A legend of Chinese Buddhism states that Fujin and Raijin were both originally evil demons who opposed Buddha. After a severe battle between the two demons and 33 gods, the demons were captured and converted, working as gods since then, becoming the protectors of good harvest.
