"Heaven and Earth are one; 
there is no barrier between them.
The High Heavenly Plain is the high heavenly plain
which covers all countries of the world,
and the Sun Goddess is the goddess who reigns in that heaven,
casting her light to the very ends of heaven
and earth and for all time.
There is not a single country in the world
which does not receive her beneficent illuminations;
This Goddess is the splendor of all splendors."

(Quote by Motoori Norinaga, 1771; 19th century woodblock of Amaterasu emerging from her cave by Shunsai Toshimasa.)
