This awesome art of Konohana Sakuya Hime from Japanese Mythology is created by the very talented artist Juri H. Chinchilla :iconjurithedreamer:  This beautiful art will be a frosted clear chase card in our Classic Mythology III: Goddesses card set.




Konohana Sakuya-Hime (Konohana-sakuya Hime, Konohana Sakuyahime, Konohanasakuya-hime, Kono-hana) - Japanese Mythology - was the blossom-princess and symbol of delicate earthly life. She is the daughter of the mountain god Ohoyamatsumi. She is often considered an avatar of Japanese life, especially since her symbol is the Sakura, (Cherry Blossom). She was the wife of Ninigi. She met the god on the seashore and they fell in love; Ninigi asked Oho-Yama for her hand in marriage. Oho-Yama proposed his older daughter, Iwa-Naga, instead, but Ninigi had his heart set on Kono-hana. Oho-Yama reluctantly agreed and Ninigi and Kono-hana married. Because Ninigi refused Iwa-Naga, the rock-princess, human lives are said to be short and fleeting, like the sakura blossoms, instead of enduring and long lasting, like stones. She is the goddess of Mount Fuji. Kono-hana became pregnant in just one night, causing suspicion in Ninigi. He wondered if this was the child of another kami. Kono-hana was enraged at Ninigi's accusation and entered a doorless hut where she then set fire to it. She vowed that the child would not be hurt if it were truly the offspring of the heavenly kami Ninigi. In the hut, Kono-hana had three sons, Hoderi, Hosuseri and Hoori. Shrines have been built, at Mount Fuji, for the goddess Konohana Sakuya Hime. It is believed that she will keep Mount Fuji from erupting, but shrines to her at Kirishima have been repeatedly destroyed by volcanic eruptions.
