Tide Jewels

Japanese - A set of jewels giving control of the seas. These jewels were owned by Ryujin, Dragon King of the Sea and were given by his daughter to the prince, Fire Fade, when they married. Some versions say that there were but two jewels, both pearls. One, Kanji, controlled the ebb-tide, the other, Manji, controlled the flood-tide. In some accounts, Ryujin's son, Isora, lent them to the Empress Jingo for her conquest of Korea and later gave them to her son, Ojin. At times, called Tide Jewels.
