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 third and last of a series covering the myths found in this text, and covers the miscellaneous stories that did not fit in the first two essays. It includes myths on the relationship between kami and immigrants, and myths in which blood plays an unusually prominent role.
