thank you for correcting me.

You know TEPCO is not an actual demon but an electricity company in Japan right?

I see you’re wanting to give something and I apreciate it, specially since I like Japan an its culture (Zen, samurias, but also the mythology).

I remember reading about a past queen of japan, that was the ruler before the royal line of empereros started theirs. Allegely she was a powerful witch and ruled using magic and stuff.
I would love to learn (in the far future) the ways of the oldest magical system on Japan, they’re probably close to shamanism and were the fundations to shinto religion.

I have actually been doing some things with more japanese entities lately. My occult teacher actually sort of set up a shinto style ritual to get in touch with the ancestors/spirits of my japanese half. Also I have been calling up the seven lucky gods of japan to map out their energy. They also would like to meet me on the astral about something but I haven’t had the chance to do that yet.
