Japanese Mythology Sleep Stories: Creation Myth, Jimmu, Momotaro, Forty-seven Ronin... (ASMR)

The French Whisperer ASMR
Published 10 months ago

This soft spoken ASMR video is an introduction to Japanese Mythology, from the Creation Myth, some of the gods (Azanagi and Azanami, Amaterasu, Susanoo...), the first emperor (Jimmu), to the concept of Kami and the influence of Shinto. I also tell you about folk and legendary tales, like Momotaro, Shita-kiri Suzume and the incident of Forty-seven Ronin.
