Zoka no kami
   The kami of creation. Ame-no-minaka-nushi-no-kami and the two deities taka-mi-musubi-no-kami (exalted musubi kami) and kami-musubi-no-kami (sacred musubi-kami) are the 'three deities of creation' (zoka no sanshin) who according to the Kojiki account popularised after the Meiji restoration were responsible for the birth and growth of all things. These three deities came to prominence especially in sect Shinto theology of the Meiji period and were regarded as highly orthodox deities.
