Crest of the Imperial Chrysanthemum Throne.


Hikofutooshimakoto (彦太忍信命) was the son of Emperor Kōgen and Ikagashikome.12

The nihongi says that he was the grandfather of Takeuchi no Sukune.2

The kojiki, however, states he was the father of Takeuchi, through his marriage to Yamashitakage. He is also said to have also married Takachinahime, and together they had a child called Umashi Uchi.1
