Wake-ikatsu-tsino-kami in Japanese mythology, is the god of flashes of lightning; a sublime god, resident in the main sanctuary at Kamo, near Mijako, and who guards the fate of the Mikado. In this sanctuary are yearly held several festivals, of which one, Obimatsuri, is especially remarkable, because the priests then appear in the most costly apparel, superseding even the splendor of the apparel of the choir of music. Besides festive processions, horse races are a main feature of the occasion, in which only kami priests and court servants are permitted to participate.
