Ninigi and a quick note.

Yay! Another Deity of the Day! Today's God comes from Japan, and goe by the name of Ninigi. He is also known as Ninigi-No-Mikoto.
He is a God of rice, and part of the Japanese royal family. His grandmother, the Goddess Amaterasu, left him in control of the most treasured objects: a mirror, a necklace and a sacred sword.

A note about Deities of the Day: these are meant as little introductions to deities from different cultures, so if you find one that interests you, you can go and reseatch out more. I hope I can help you expand your pantheon knowledge, so you can pick gods that are right for you.
