Traditional Japanese Omoikane Mask by Tanabe Seisuke
Omoikane (思兼 or 思金) is the Shinto god of wisdom and intelligence.
His name means "serving one's thoughts." He was ofetn called upon by other dietri (gods) to help make decisons. In one myth, Amaterasu (sun goddess) hid in a cave and Omoikane was tasked to find a way to get her out.
He is said to be the child of Takamimusubi, but according to some depictions, it is the god of Tokoyo (the endless country). Omoikane is a revered form of thoughts, intelligence, and wisdom.
