Details This paper specifically attempted to compare the Jeju region's "Segyong Bonpuli" and the folk tale of "The God of the Pit," which are passed down throughout Korea, with the Japanese "Amewakahikomonogatari (Tanabata no Honji)" myth. As a result, it is believed that Japan had shamanistic myths in the past, such as the "reincarnation reunion type" serpent groom story, which is a combination of the "Three Scriptures" and our folk tale of the "pit goddess," and that the "Amewakahikomonogatari (Tanabata no Honji)" myth was born from these shamanistic myths. In other words, the myth of the "reincarnation reunion" snake bridegroom by shamans existed in Japan before the birth of the Japanese "Amewakahikomonogatari (Tanabata no Honji)" myth.
