Kagutsuchi (カグツチ), also known as Kagutsuchi no Kami (迦具土の神), Hi no Kagutsuchi (火之迦具土), or Homusubi (火産霊), is the Shinto god of fire.

When Kagutsuchi was born, his mother Izanami was so badly burned that she died. In revenge, Kagutsuchi's father Izanagi cut off his head, then sliced his body into eight pieces, which became eight volcanoes. The blood dripping from Izanagi's sword created several more gods, including Watatsumi and Kuraokami, water gods.
