- A group of three important female kami (tagori-hime, tagitsu-hime and ichikishima-hime). They are worshipped in the Munakata-taisha, Fukuoka, which consists of three shrines, one on the mainland and two on the islands of Okino-shima and Oshima, as well as in the Itsukushima-jinja, the Ichikishima-jinja on Miyajima and many thousands of other related shrines established by the bunrei of the main shrine. Hachiman in his role as a sea kami is closely associated with Munakata.
