Mythology {{{Mythology}}}


Uke Mochi (保食神 Ukemochi-no-kami; English: "Goddess Who Possesses Food") is a goddess of food in the Shinto religion of Japan. When Uke Mochi was visited by Tsukuyomi she prepared a feast by facing the ocean and luring out a fish, then she faced the forest and bountiful game danced out of the forest as she sang, finally turning to a rice paddy she pulled out of her backpack up a bowl . She is immortal. She doesn’t exactly agree with the full Japanese diet but she knows her people can throw down in the kitchen.

  • The goddess is sometimes also called Ōgetsuhime-no-kami (大宜都比売神).
  • Uke Mochi is also the Wife of Inari in some legends and in others is herself Inari.
