Hoderi and Hoori - Japanese Mythology

Son of Ninigi, the ancestral Rice God and Ko-no-Hana, a Blossom Princess daughter of the mountain god Oho-Yama, Hoderi was the God of Fishing, becoming himself a fisherman. Hoderi along with his brother Hoori, the Mountain God of Hunting are remembered for their battle to protect a mythical palace under the sea.

One day, Hoori went to the sea to fish, exchanging his hunting tools with Hoderi. Hoori had no ability as a fisherman and lost his brother's hook after spending a whole day by the seashore with no catches. Fearing Hoderi's reaction, Hoori asked for help from an old man at a dock nearby.

Hoderi, whose name means "Fire Shine', was in fire after hearing what his brother did and promised never to forgive him if he could not get his hook back. Guided by the old man, Hoori found the palace under the sea, but he forgot about his brother’s hook after meeting and falling in love with the daughter of the Sea God.

While Hoderi was waiting for him impatiently, Hoori decided to live in the palace by the side of the beautiful princess for the next 3 years. Hoderi was so furious that he confronted the Sea God asking for his hook.

The god summoned all his fish and after finding it, he gave this hook to Hoori with the condition to beat his brother and guarantee a peaceful life for all the inhabitants of his palace.

Hoori, whose name means "Fire Fade", took the challenge and quarreled with his brother until he made him obey the god's desire. Hoori returned to the undersea palace and married Otohime, the daughter of the Sea God, being named the ancestor of the Japanese emperors, while Hoderi was appointed as protector of the immigrants arriving to Japan from the south over the sea.

Otohime, whose name means "Luminous Jewel”, gave birth to a son after her marriage to Hoori, but this event turned her into a dragon, as such was the original Sea God's shape.
