TitleAjisukitakahikone
テキスト内容Other names: Ajishikitakahiko no kami, Ajishikitakahikone no kami

Also known as Kamo no ōmikami; the offspring of the land-founding deity Ōkuninushi no kami, and Tagiribime no mikoto (one of the three goddesses of Munakata, daughters of Susanoo). Both Kojiki and Nihongi report that Ajisukitakahikones appearance closely resembled that of his son-in-law Amewakahiko (husband of his daughter Shitateruhime). As a result, when he visited the mourning hut (moya) after the death off Amewakahiko, he was mistaken for the dead man by the family of the deceased. Angered that he had been taken for a polluted dead person, Ajisukitakahikone stomped down the mourning hut with his feet, resulting in the creation of the mountain Moyama in Mino Province.

The early gazeteers (fudoki) of the provinces of Harima and Izumo transmit legends regarding the origin of place-names relating to Ajisukitakahikone and his consort and children, as well as reports that he was enshrined in the Kamo shrine of Katsuragi. The Izumo no kuni no miyatsuko kanyogoto also reports that the kami ōnamuchi directed that Ajisukitakahikone be enshrined in a kannabi (sacred grove or mountain) at Kamo of Katsuragi, indiating that he was considered an ancestral kami (sojin) related to the Izumo and Katsuragi areas. He is also enshrined at the Tsutsukowake Jinja in Fukushima, giving him the characteristic of a pioneering deity in eastern Japan as well.
