Mythology

Susanowo (須佐之男) is the god of the sea and storms in the Shinto religion. He has a long-standing rivalry with his sister Amaterasu Omikami. The encyclopedia entry is accurate.

Encyclopedia entry

Both "Susanowo" and the alternate spelling "Susanoo" return this entry:

The Shinto chthonic and weather god and brother of the sun
goddess Amaterasu, he was born from the nose of the
primordial creator god Izanagi and represents the physical,
material world. He has been expelled from heaven and taken
up residence on earth.
