Cannot be Special Summoned. Monsters cannot activate their effects, except Spirit monsters. Once per turn, during the End Phase, if this card was Normal Summoned or flipped face-up this turn: Return this card to the hand.

Izanagi lets you keep your Spirit monsters on the field while he is face-up. Mirror of Yata has a similar effect but only on the monster it is equipped to, it also provides the monster with one-time protection from destruction.
Refers to a strategy which involves using Rock-type monsters with effects that restrict your opponent's plays. Koa'ki Meiru Wall and Koa'ki Meiru Sandman deck go well with this card because they negate your opponent's Spell and Trap cards respectively while Amano-Iwato prevents them from using monster effects. Amano-Iwato returning to your hand can then be used for both Koa'ki Meiru monster's maintenance cost.
