Kukuri-Hime

December 1st, 2008 by sabrina

Kukuri-Hime is the Shinto Goddess of mediation. She performed this role first for Izanami and Izanagi, who argued after Izanagi tried to retrieve Izanami from the underworld. Kukuri-Hime is said to be a dragon Goddess and is worshipped, along with Izanami and Izanagi, at Mount Hakusan. This mountain is the source of four rivers, so Kukuri-Hime is also said to have power over water. Her name, which means “the princess who brings together,” is also seen as Kukuri-Hime-no-Kami and Shirayama-Hime.
