In Japanese mythology, Kuninotokotachi (国之常立神?, Kuninotokotachi-no-Kami, in Kojiki) (国常立尊?, Kuninotokotachi-no-Mikoto, in Nihonshoki) is one of the two gods born from "something like a reed that arose from the soil" when the earth was chaotic. In the Nihon Shoki, he is the first of the first three divinities born after heaven and earth were born out of chaos, and is born from something looking like a reed-shoot growing between heaven and earth.
