Yomigami (「蘇神」?) is the Celestial Brush god of Rejuvenation. Taking the form of a dragon over a parchment, he is encountered by completing a constellation in the River of the Heavens. He is the Dragon in the East Asia zodiac. He carries four yellow orbs in his claws, though their purpose is unknown.
Ah... Why if it isn't mother Amaterasu. I apologize for not contacting you sooner during those long years. Having never forgotten you, I, Yomigami, god of restoration, have eagerly awaited this day when we could again meet. While you were away, the 13 spirits of the brush that you once possessed, including myself, have been scattered across this land of men, and now lie in disarray. I became a constellation and managed to survive until now. The time has come for you to seek out and reunite all the techniques. Your power is what is needed to restore the dried riverbed of the heavens and renew the flow of stardust.Yomigami
Rejuvenation is used to fill in missing or broken parts of things. Ink used for Rejuvenation appears lighter than usual, like smoke. If the Celestial Brush is moved over an area where Rejuvenation can be used, greyish Holy smoke will appear. As long as the broken part is filled in, the object will restore itself. Use the triangle button or move the Wii remote closer to the screen to paint a larger area at once.
As one of the least frequently required techniques, there exist only a few instances in which its restorative use is possible. These include;
- When restoring the constellations by filling in the missing stars.
- The bridge of stardust that spans the River of the Heavens.
- The blade held by the statue of Nagi within the Cave of Nagi.
- When restoring Mrs. Orange's drying pole.
- The waterwheel outside Kushi's sake brewery in Kamiki Village.
- A crumbling stone bridge within Tsuta Ruins.
- The wooden bridge to the Guardian Sapling in Taka Pass.
- The third largest of the four columns that surround the digging minigame (later Mermaid spring) in the eastern wing of the Dragon Palace.
- The arrow on the Gekigami statue within the castle on Oni Island.
- The crumbling floor during the final boss battle against Yami.
The two children of Yomigami appear in Ōkamiden, who give Chibiterasu the power of Rejuvenation. They resemble seahorses (Japanese for seahorse literally means baby dragon). Each child clutches a single orb in its two arms, which protrude from a small scroll that wraps around its body.
- "Yomi" refers to the underworld (a neutral realm, unlike "heaven" or "hell" in Western beliefs).
- Oddly, Yomigami's children say their parents served Amaterasu, although they are only known to have a father.
- Dragons throughout Eastern Asia, and without exception in Japan, are revered as great and honored beasts of divinity. One characteristic they depict is carrying an orb-shaped jewel, or pearl, in one or more of their claws; while also representing prosperity, luck, and wealth, the orbs are said to be blessed with the abilities of omnipotence and creation at will, and powers over the phenomena of weather and the seas.
