Japanese legend says that the giant monster catfish, Namazu, lies beneath the Japanese bridge. This giant fish has its head in India and its tail in Japan and is guarded by the god Kashima who controls the fish with a stone. If Kashima lets his guard down, the fish thrashes about and causes earthquakes in Japan.
