Shokuro

Japanese - A man who tried to capture a god. Knowing that the thunder-god, Raiden, ate navels, he killed the maiden Chiyo, cut out her navel and flew it on a kite to attract the god. Raiden took Chiyo into the heavens and they both came down when they saw the kite. Strangely, Chiyo forgave her killer. Sometimes called Shokuro.
