Crest of the Imperial Chrysanthemum Throne.


Wakayamatoneko (稚倭根子皇子) was the son of Emperor Keikō and Yasakairihime according to the nihongi.

An alternative version in that same book says he was instead the son of Harima no Inabi no Ōiratsume,1 this is also stated in the kojiki but the name given is merely Yamatoneko.2
