Hojo Takatoki

Japanese - An emperor. He banished Oribe Shima to a far-off island. His daughter, Tokoyo, set out to find him and came upon a priest about to throw a maiden over a cliff in sacrifice to the serpent-god, Yofuna- Nushi. She took the maiden's place and jumped into the sea where she met and killed the monstrous white serpent-god. She then returned to the surface bearing the body of the serpent and an image of Hojo Takatoki which she had found under the sea. As soon as this image was restored, the emperor, who had fallen ill, was restored to full health. In some accounts, referred to as Hojo Takatoki.
