Encyclopedia entryBoth "Raijin" and the alternate name "Raiden" return this entry:
The Japanese god of thunder (rai) and lightning (den). He
prevented the Mongols from invading Japan in 1274. Sitting on
a cloud he sent forth a shower of lightning arrows upon the
invading fleet. Only three men escaped. Raiden is portrayed
as a red demon with sharp claws, carrying a large drum. He is
fond of eating human navels. The only protection against him
is to hide under a mosquito net.
