Mimitari was a part of the Kumaso Clan residing on the island of Tsukushi mentioned in the nihongi during the reign of Emperor Keikō.

When the Emperor comes to Tsukushi to defeat the rebelling Kumaso, a chieftain by the name of Kamunashihime gives information on those who are not submitting to Imperial Rule.

Asahagi was one of them, alongside, Asahagi encamped in Kahakami in Takaha, Hanatari encamped in Kahakami in Usa and Tsuchiworiwiwori encamped in Kahakami in Midorino.

She requests that they be defeated.

One of the Emperor’s Ministers, Takemorogi, manages to entice the followers of Asahagi with gifts. The followers then beckoned the four leaders to come which ends with them being seized and all killed.1
