Calligraphy at the Aikijinja

Hello all. Been a while.

I'm wondering if anyone here is good at reading Japanese calligraphy? In particular I'm trying to translate the banners displayed at the Aikijinja in Iwama, either side of the shomen. They are visible in old photos, but if you type "aiki jinja" into youtube they are more easily read in whole, in particular the videos of the Doshu demonstrating there.

I'd assume someone whose been to Iwama might know straight off the bat, but just hoping someone here may have the answer.

Cheers.

Apologies for the double post. I found a better picture with both calligraphic rows. I'm fairly sure the obscured characters at the bottom of the right hand row mirror that of the left.

The original shot (found online) was a little small, so I enlarged it and put it on my webpage. The resolution is a bit crap, but it's clear enough to read.

I keep trying to work out if it's Kunitokotachi-O-Kami or Hitsujisaru-O-Kami, being fairly highly referenced in Omoto godhood, but my Japanese is very poor.

BTW was there any reply on Twitter? I don't use the program.
