Inada

Japanese - A Shinto love-goddess and ricegoddess. Daughter of Ashi-nadzuchi and Te-nadzuchi. Wife of Susanowa. Mother of Ya-Shima-Ji-Nu-Mi and Kamu-O-Ichi. Her seven sisters had been devoured by the eight-headed dragon, Yamatono Orochi, and she was to be the next victim. Susanowa changed her into a comb, then got the serpent drunk so that he could kill it and, returning Inada-hime to her proper form, married her. Also known as Inada, Kushi-nada, Kushi-nada, Kushinada, Kushinada, Kusa-nada or Kusa-nada.
