Crest of the Imperial Chrysanthemum Throne.


Yehime (媛) was the daughter of Tanika no hiko Tatatsumichinoushi.

She is seen mentioned within the kojiki during the events following the attempted murder of Emperor Suinin by Sahobime.

When the Emperor asks his wife/attempted murderer who should remove the girdle that had been placed around their sons waist she replies that it should be Otohime and her sister Yehime as they had unsullied parentage.12
