The Kojiki is not the only collection of Japanese mythology. The Nihon Shoki (The Chronicles of Japan), compiled in the year 720, collects many similar versions of the myths featured in The Kojiki, although names of gods and other details of the myths change at times. Local myths and legends that flourish throughout eastern Shimane are contained in the Izumo-no-kuni Fudoki, a record of the geography, culture, and folklore of the area that was compiled in 733. Although all of the provinces in Japan compiled a Fudoki, Izumo’s is the only one that still exists in almost complete form, and the stories contained within provide a uniquely Izumo flavor to existing myths and introduce completely original Izumo mythology as well.
