Crest of the Imperial Chrysanthemum Throne.


Nubatanoiribika (渟葉田瓊入媛) was the daughter of Tanika no hiko Tatatsumichinoushi.12

She is summoned to the Emperor in the nihongi alongside her sisters Matonuhime, Hibasuhime, Azaminoiribime and Takanohime by the Emperor after his first wife, Sahobime, recommended them as future marriage candidates.

She was then made one of his concubines and together they had Nutarashiwake and Igatarashihiko.123

The kojiki differs slightly saying that she came with Matonuhime, Hibasuhime and another sister called Utakorihime.12
