From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 35:72

In the Ofudesaki the Japanese term “Tsutome,” which is translated as “Service,” refers almost invariably to the Kagura Service. Among the ten Service performers there are “those who take the role of the Parent of the beginnings of origin,” this “Parent” referring to Tsukihi (Moon-Sun) or God the Parent. This is how Ofudesaki chushaku interprets this verse, as well. The “Parent of the beginnings of origin” is the Parent who created the origin–which is to say, Tsukihi (Moon-Sun), God the Parent. In terms of the sacred names, this refers to Kunitokotachi-no-Mikoto and Omotari-no-Mikoto. In the performance of the Kagura Service, the two performers corresponding to them play their roles to the north and the south of the Kanrodai, respectively. They perform by receiving the truth of the Parent of the beginnings of origin.
