Sendai Kuji Hongi
   'Record of events of bygone times'. Also known as Kuji Hongi, Kujiki. A historical record in ten sections covering events from the age of the gods, yin and yang etc. up to the time of Empress Suiko. It is not clear who compiled the work but it is thought that it may have been written in the early Heian period (late ninth century) by a member of the Mononobe family. It includes much of the same material as the Kojiki and Nihongi but includes material not found in these earlier works.
