A Look Into Mythology: Yomi

Yomi is a place in Japan's Shinto religion where the dead go to dwell and rot for all time. It's very comparable to the underworld of many faiths. 
It is guarded and ruled by the Goddess Izanami no Mikoto. One of the few versions of a dark underworld run by a female deity.
