What is the name of "Divine Winds" in Japanese?
in 1281 ?, Korean war ships were about to attack Japan at Hakata Bay. The monks prayed, and terrible typhoons struck and destroyed the fleet. They called it "Divine Winds" and WWII Japanese suicide pilots called themselves "_________", Divine Winds.

Kamikaze ( 神風 ), common translation: "divine wind", a name given to a typhoon that saved Japan from a Mongol invasion in the 13th century, from 神 "kami" ('god, divine') + 風 "kaze" ('wind').

But it was Mongolians that were invading Japan, not the Koreans.
