Although the Settsu-no-Kuni Fudoki does not survive as an independent work, a lot of quotations from it do survive, so it is possible to write a whole essay about it. It is particularly notable for including several myths referring to Okinagatarashihimë, some of which refer to her as Tennō. One of these is an alternative foundation myth for Sumiyoshi Taisha, an important jinja in modern Osaka.
