Kihisatsumi is said to have been the ancestor of the Representatives of Izumo.

During the events surrounding trying to get Prince Homutsuwake to learn to speak it is said he made a mountain adorned with green leaves and placed it downstream from the princes palace.

When he was about to present food to the prince he finally spoke saying.

‘This mountian is not a mountain, perhaps it is the court of those who worship Ashiharashikowo.’12
