The Harima-no-Kuni Fudoki is a gazetteer of the province of Harima, part of modern Hyōgo Prefecture, in the early eighth century. This essay is the second of a series covering the myths found in this text, and covers the stories associated with four important kami mentioned in many locations: Ōnamuchi, Amënohiboko, Ashiharashiko'o, and Iwa Ōkami. Some of these kami may, or may not, be the same as kami mentioned in other myths.
