Mother of the kami Seyatatarahime. According to Kojiki, Seyatatarahime was of such beauty that Ōmononushi fell in love with her and transformed himself into a red-lacquered arrow which struck her genitals, impregnating her. As a result, Seyatatarahime gave birth to Himetataraisukeyorihime, who would become consort to the first Emperor Jinmu.
In contrast, Nihongis record of Emperor Jinmu states that Mizokuis daughter Tamagushihime was wed to the kami Kotoshironushi and gave birth to Himetataraisuzuhime no mikoto, a beautiful woman who later became Jinmus queen. Mishima is the district of that name in Osaka Prefecture; the Mizokui Shrine is still found in the Isuzu district of the city of Ibaraki.
