TitleHayaakitsuhi, Hayaakitsuhime
テキスト内容Other names: Haya akitsuhiko no kami(Kojiki), Haya akitsuhi no mikoto(Nihongi), Minato no kami (Kojiki)



One of the kami produced by Izanagi and Izanami in Kojikis account of the "birth of the land" (kuniumi). The two kami form a single pair, and Minato no kami is used as their collective name. According to an "alternate writing" transmitted by Nihongi, the kami Hayaakitsuhi no kami appears as a general title for Minato no kami. The kami is considered a tutelary of ocean inlets and straits, and is also viewed as a deity of purification. The norito litany Ōharae no kotoba mentions only the female kami Hayaakitsuhime. This is believed by some to be a reflection of the original female nature of the kami, or of the fact that the titles of the two kami were unified in the female persona.
