[Inada no miyanushi suga no yatsumimi] (Kojiki)
Other names: Inada no miyanushi susa no yatsumimi no kami(Nihongi)

"Master(s) of the Inada palace at Suga." After killing the serpent Yamata no orochi at Suga, Susanoo took as wife Kushinadahime, and gave the name Inada no Miyanushi Suga no Yatsumimi to her parents Tenazuchi no kami and Ashinazuchi no kami, thus making them head priests of the palace-shrine in which Susanoo lived.
