Ohominakuchino Sukune

Ohominakuchino Sukune was a person mentioned in the nihongi during the reign of Emperor Sujin.

He is said to have had a dream alongside Yamatototokamiasachihara Maguhashihime saying that Ohotataneko needed to be placed as head priest of Ohomonomushi and Ichishinonagaochi as head priest of Ohokunidama as this would help abate the plague affecting the country. (Both of these kami names are names for Ōkuninushi).1
