Origin

The Amatsu-Kami or more simply the Kami or Gods of Japan are an extra-dimensional race of powerful humanoid beings who were worshiped by the Ancient Japanese from around 10 000 BC to power to 1946 when the empire dissolved its last ties to Shinto Religion, the last remaining form of its ancient worship rites to the gods. They include the gods and goddesses Amaterasu, Ame-No-Mi-Kumari, Bishamon, Futsunushi, Ho Ti,  Inari, Izanagi, Izanami, Kagutsuchi, Kaminari, Kushinada, Mikaboshi, Okami, Susanoo, Tsukiyomi. The Amatsu-Kami occupy a dimension overlapping with Earth.  

Creation

The Amatsu-Kami would roughly translate as the heavenly deities, as opposed to Kunitsu-Kami or the gods of the earthly realm. Based on the mythological beings of the same name, they have been adapted into the Marvel comics universe and first appear in Thor #300. .
