Lets wikiattack!

Yakami Hime (Princess of Yakami) was a beautiful princess, in the land of Inaba, now western Tottori. She appears in the old myth The White Rabbit of Inaba.

In Izumo, Okuninushi's 80 brothers, known as the Yasogami, head off to Inaba to try and win the princess's hand. Okuninushi was relegated to baggage carrier for his brothers. On a beach they discover a sick rabbit, the flayed hare stopped them and asked them for help. They told the hare to wash in the sea and dry itself in the wind, which naturally caused great pain for it. Ōkuninushi then met the hare, and he told it to bathe in fresh water and then roll in the pollen of cattail. The hare immediately got better, and it revealed its true form as a god. In gratitude, the hare told Ōkuninushi that Yakami would be his., and seeing his kindness, Yakami hime falls in love with him.

His brothers, who were furious, heated a boulder to white-hot temperatures, and rolled it down a mountain toward him. He thought it was a boar and grabbed it, subsequently burning to death. His mother, Kami-Musubi, revived him. His brothers then crushed Ōkuninushi to death. Kami-Musubi then advised him to take refuge in the underworld instead.

There Yakami will lost the love of Okuninush, He will fell in love with Suseri-hime, daughter of Susa-no-Ō.

What a sad story but when will we see Susan-no-O and his archenemy?
Very nice! Remembering reading the Japanese myth story about her, and I thought Okuninush married Yakami.
