This single volume work is generally considered to have been completed around 1223. It is also known by such names as Sannō engi and Hie sannō ki. Its author is unknown. Because it contains a section entitled "Sannō koto" (literally, "Sannō things") in which the doctrine of Sannō Shintō was put forth, Yōten ki was believed to be the oldest Sannō Shintō text on record. However, because of the recent discovery of an earlier-dated manuscript of the Sannō engi , it is now considered that the "Sannō koto" material was added later, and that Yōten ki was originally intended to be a ritual protocol for the hereditary priests of the Hiyoshi family. Today, Yōten ki is a very valuable reference for understanding the rites and history of Hiesha at the beginning of Kamakura period when the doctrine of Sannō Shintō was still being developed. This text is included in Zoku gunsho ruijyū , jingi-bu, and Shintō taikei, Jinjya-hen, Hie.
