Kukurihime

Kukurihime (菊理媛神) is a Shinto kami who appears in one alternative version of the Nihongi. She appears to Izanagi after he has left his wife in Yomi and divorced her.

The Nihongi says that this kami says something enjoyable to Izanagi and then disappears. It isn’t stated what she says.1
