Tambanochinushi is mentioned in the nihongi as one of the four men sent out to subdue the provinces during the 10th year of the reign of Emperor Sujin.1 The kojiki does not make mention of him during this part of Sujin’s reign and instead replaces his name with Kibitsuhiko.23
Later in the same year he is ordered to subdue the ‘savage tribes abroad’ with Takenumakahawake, Ohobiko and Kibitsuhiko. He, alongside the others return in the 11th year to make report of their victory.1
