"In Japan Mythology, the color red is associated closely with a few deities in Shinto and Buddhist traditions. According to Japanese folk belief, RED is the color for "expelling demons and illness." Centered on the fire god (a red deity), these purification rites were designed to purify the land by sending evil spirits to the Ne no Kuni (details here). This association with evil segues easily into other links with child mortality, protection against evil forces (sickness), fertility, the caul (embryonic membrane covering the head at birth), and other child-birth imagery."
