Yatagarasu (Three-Legged Crow)

“Follow after the great crow as it goes.”
– Takamimusubi

The three-legged crow is a creature found in Asian mythology. In Japan, it is called Yatagarasu, and it is a divine emissary of the sun goddess, Amaterasu. This crow is known to guide lost souls on Earth safely along their way, having one foot for each of past, present, and future.

In this world
we walk on the roof of hell
gazing at flowers
– Kobayashi Issa
