He or she—considering there were a number of empresses in ancient Japan—was the human male/female that most acutely embodied the deity. In this light, the case of the Emperor Goshirakawa (1127–92) and his relationship to asobime is highly interesting. After his abdication in 1158, merely three years after commencing his reign, Goshirakawa became a monk in 1169, yet from inside the monastery he continued to exert full dominance over the sons and grandsons who succeeded the imperial throne until his death in 1192.

The matrimonial system prior to the Nara period (AD 710–94) was matrilocal (or uxorilocal) polygamy with the husband visiting plural wives and, to lesser extent, the wife receiving plural husbands, a practice called tsumado(h)i (visiting the wives). Children were raised matrilocally in the mother’s family. By custom, women stayed in their (maternal) family home to receive the husband at dusk, sending him off at dawn. However, referring to this system simply as “matrilocal,” “uxorilocal,” “polygamy,” or “ploygyny,” as if to assume that these well-worn (Western) anthropological terms can exhaust the nuances of ancient Japanese kinship and marriage, would be greatly misleading.
