Japanese Cookery God

Also known as NINIGI-NO-MIKOTO

God of Rice and the Japanese Imperial family

He’s a bit starchy and hard-boiled.

The grandson of AMATERASU, she passed on to him the sacred items that are the Japanese equivalent to the Crown Jewels only more so: a mirror, a necklace and the sacred sword.

His wife is the delightful Princess Blossom KONOHANA, with whom he fathered several fiery siblings including HOSUSERI and the famous huntin’ and fishin’ brothers HOORI and HODERI.
