Uke Mochi (保食神 Ukemochi-no-kami; English: "Goddess Who Protects Food" ) is a goddess of food in the Shinto religion of Japan. When Uke Mochi was visited by Tsukuyomi she prepared a feast by facing the ocean and spitting out a fish, then she faced the forest and bountiful game spewed out of her mouth, finally turning to a rice paddy she coughed up a bowl of rice. Tsukuyomi was so disgusted he killed her. Even her dead body produced food: millet, rice, and beans sprang forth. Her eyebrows even became silkworms.
The goddess is sometimes also called Ōgetsuhime-no-kami (大宜都比売神).
