Fuwanomojikunusunu (布波能母遅久奴須奴神 – Budding Noble Land Dwelling Master) is a Shinto Spirit mentioned in the Kojiki. He was the son of Yashimajinumi and Konohanachiruhime and through his marriage to Hikawahime he had a child called Fukabuchinomizuyarehana.\

The meaning of this deities name is not fully understood, but some believe his name shows him as a spirit who presides over buildings which had been built on the land of his father Yashimajinumi.1
