Kuni-toko-tachi (or -dachi) no mikoto

The kami is thought to be enshrined, though without a shintai, at the Kumano hongu taisha. According to the Nihongi Kunitokodachi was the first to appear at the creation of heaven and earth while in the Kojiki version a kami with the almost identical name of Kuni-no-toko-dachi is the sixth kami to appear and is listed among those who appear from a thing like a reed-shoot.
