TitleMitsuhanome
テキスト内容Other names: Itsu no Mitsuhanome no kami(Kojiki)



A kami of water. Upon giving birth to the fire kami Kagutsuchi, Izanami fell ill and the kami Mitsuhanome was produced from her urine. According to Nihongi, Mitsuhanome was produced just before Izanami died; Nihongis record of Emperor Jinmu states that before his enthronement, Jinmu performed a ritual of utsushi iwai (a ritual in which an invisible deity takes on concrete, visible form), in which he personally took on the identity of the kami Takamimusuhi no mikoto. Jinmu gave the name Itsu no Mitsuhanome (sacred-water-female) to the water offered as part of the ritual by the officiating priestess Itsuhime. Itsu means "sacred" or "holy," mitsu (or mizu) means "water," and me is the feminine suffix.
