'Omatsuri' are another way of saying 'kami asobi', which means it's a time when gods play with humans!

Notable Attacks / Techniques:

  • Creation of Earth: Suwako's ability to create earth directly refers to the concept of Kun (坤) within Taoist philosophy. Kun is the pinnacle of the native god and is associated with acceptance, devotion, subtlety, flexibility, and reaction instead of action. It is the opposite element to Kanako's Qian. Through it, Suwako can create and manipulate earthly things - such as stone and the earth itself, water (especially rivers), and plant life. She can both render the soil more fertile, or curse it to the point that not even weeds can grow.
  • Curse Gods (The Mishaguji): The Mishaguji are fearsome curse gods that gathered much faith in the past by cursing harvests, births, and wars, amongst other things. Despite their reputation, Suwako managed to tame them and bring them under her control. Their breath can render the land barren, and Suwako uses them to dig tunnels for her use.
