It's important to realize that Japanese is spoken in many different dialects, and so, the exact pronunciation of a word or name in the language can sound different depending upon dialect or even context. Therefore, "Amaterasu" has a couple of different pronunciations. However, the most accurate pronunciation (Tokyo-dialect) would be "ah-MAH-teh-RAH-soo." The "rah" could also be said "lah" (southern dialects), and the "soo" could be dropped so that the final syllable is "rahs" or "lahs."

The "u" at the end of Amaterasu is actually silent.
