Ainu Folklore: Traditions and Culture of the Vanishing Aborigines of Japan.

In one myth, when Ae-oina Kamuy, the Divine,  returns to the heavens, the gods send him back because he reeks of humans. Then he leaves his clothes on earth in order to return.

It is said that his old sandals turned into the first squirrels

The Ainu worshiped flying squirrels as protector gods of children.
