Gods And Goddesses: Musubi-no-kami

Musubi-no-kami is considered the god of love and marriage who sometimes appears as female and hence seen as a goddess by some. He often takes the shape of a handsome young man when he appears to girls, leaping forth from the cherry tree he lives within. Musubi-no-kami is said to offer the girls he appears to a bough of cherry blossom and promises future love.

Musubi-no-kami is said to assist bringing unification of individuals with the gods and to be the guardian of forestry, agriculture and fishing.
