Japanese legendary mortal

Also known as Chujohime

Almost a Japanese Cinderella

She is known as the Japanese Cinderella but there are not many handsome princes or pumpkins in her tale. In fact the only striking similarity is her wicked stepmother, and that’s only because her wicked stepmother kept striking her.

After various troubles and cruel hardships she became a Japanese nun who invented fine embroidery. Her most famous example being the Lotus Thread depicting the Flowers of Paradise in a temple at Toema Dera.

An example of a Kannon incarnation.
