In the oldest literary work Kojiki, there are tragedies of several people’s love stories. These tragedies all end in the protagonists’ death and they abound in the descriptions of death. This paper attemps to discuss the ancient Japanese philosophy of death by discussing the social background and structure of the two suicidal love stories of Sahobiki and Sahobime, and Karunomiko and Karunoohoiratsume. From the perspective of comparative thoughts, I explicate the unique Japanese view of death and the way Kojiki beautifies death. Hence, by such research I wish to offer a profound interpretation of death aesthetics embedded in the deep part of Japanese culture.
