Chapter 109, Ukemochi Summary and Analysis

Ukemochi is associated with all forms of food. She gives the people rice, fish and animals. The day comes when the moon god Tsuki Yomi, Amaterasu's brother, is sent to serve within her heavenly palace. He is to help her feed the people of Japan. Ukemochi greets her new assistant with a great feast, which he refuses.
