During the reign of Suinin Tennō, the son and heir of Sujin Tennō, there are myths concerning the foundation of Jingū at Isë, the use of divination to find the cause of and cure for an Imperial prince's situation, and a prince from the mainland who brought sacred treasures and became the ancestor of a Tennō. This essay retells and discusses them, and is over 6,000 words long.
