Element Type Chart
Goraikou (a Touhou LW original) refers to a sunrise seen from a place up high, such as from atop a mountain. This is an apt temperament for Miko, who was an advocate for Buddhism in public while following Taoism privately. Miko is endowed with Water Phase, as she is sharp-eared and amiable, and Sun Essence, with her ability to bring the people together.
The flexible and patient Water Phase resists Metal Phase, because metal collects water, but it is weak to Earth Phase, because earth directs water.
The alluring and arrogant Sun Essence resists the diverse and uncooperative Star Essence, but it is weak to the cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence.

Capable of listening to ten people's conversations at the same time
The ability of Toyosatomimi no Miko takes after the legends of the famous Prince Shoutoku. Not only can she listen to and comprehend ten people speaking to her simultaneously (the literal meaning of this ability) but can also perceive their disposition by listening to each of their ten desires all at the same time. Apparently, this also allows her to see the past and the future. However, her predictions are more likely to err when someone lacks one or more of these ten desires. It seems that in order to see the past or future from the ten desires, she must listen to all ten at once. She must process them simultaneously, not one after the other. This is because the speaker's thoughts and emotions that they put into their words will change over time if their desires are heard sequentially. Perhaps the true strength of this ability is that it allows Miko to observe and perceive someone with next to no interference or contact with them. Desire spirits, also known as "little divine spirits," are apparently born from the wishes and prayers... the desires of people. It is not known whether these are the desires of the living or released when someone passes away. From all the information available, it seems that both theories are plausible. This means that desire spirits may be spirits of the dead or spirits of the living. It is not all that unusual to mistake desire spirits for phantoms of the dead; in fact, they may even be a type or subspecies of phantom. Also, since phantoms, ghosts, and the like can ascend to divine spirits by gathering faith, calling desire spirits "little divine spirits" may not be so far off the mark. In a particular incident, Miko was seen accepting (or perhaps absorbing) desire spirits into herself and becoming one with them, which may be an example of the process that mere souls take when ascending to divine spirits. And perhaps this is also a primordial example of syncretism between faiths.

Toyosatomimi no Miko, Shoutoku Taoist, is the historical Prince Shoutoku. From a young age, they decided that dying was simply unacceptable - they had things to do, people to rule, and why should they be stopped by death for simply being a human? Thus, the Crown Prince was approached by a hermit by the name of Seiga Kaku, whom granted them immortality (with the nice bonus perk of a body of their choosing) via taoism. Unfortunately their plans backfired, and Miko wound up slumbering within the earth, sealed away for hundreds of years until finally reawakening during the events of Ten Desires. Immediately she attempted to broach the subject of leading the humans of Gensokyo, but seeing as how that’s not an option, she’ll instead lead your roster as an A+ Tier Friend.
As far as farming goes, Miko is a solid option for Solo stages, due to her highly potent damage on turn 1, or for 2 turn potential if you prefer to keep her at a lower cost.
For harder fights, Miko’s primary worth is still in her Solo targeting Last Word, Heed the Commands with Absolute Care. Thanks to its 50%/0%/0%/0%/70%/70% Agility and 0%/0%/0%/0%/0%/80% Hard scaling, 1-1-3 Layout, combined with the Crown Prince granting herself 2 Spirit Power UP on the very first turn thanks to Tatsuta Protection, she can easily deal a good amount of damage in one or two turns to a priority target. Additionally, Tsunashiki Shaku grants her Charge to make her easier to support, though the Yin ATK UP goes mostly to waste. Finally, she packs some solid Break potential: Influence of the East grants her a All targeting Sun Break 0P option which she can repeat indefinitely, Discernment: Laser of Seventeen Articles is a decent 2 Sun and 2 Metal All targeting Breaks for 3 Spirit Power, and Light Sign: Halo of the Guze Kannon is a average 1/2/2/3 All targeting Sun Breaks for 0/1/2/3 Spirit Power.
Outside of this, Miko’s other notable attribute is the 2 levels of Accuracy UP (2T) on Light Sign: Halo of the Guze Kannon, which can grant her party a solid amount of extra damage in the Arena or as Accuracy support for the Tower. Likewise, the 2 levels of Yin ATK UP (2T) that Discernment: Laser of Seventeen Articles bestows upon her team can be helpful for the multi-wave Arena, but is generally lackluster for the Tower or EXTRA stages, where most attackers can easily bring themselves up to high or max levels of ATK UP - it also unfortunately does nothing for Miko herself, who is a predominately Yang attacker.
Overall, Miko’s a reasonably solid Solo targeting nuker with some decent team support potential. Just watch out for her ambitious nature - she may simply try to take the lead!
Her Hard and Slicing scaling is as follows:
Influence of the East: Hard: 0%/15%/0%/0%/0%/0%
Cipangu the Golden Sword: Slicing: 15%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%
Light Sign: Halo of the Guze Kannon: Hard: 0%/0%/30%/30%/0%/0%
Heed the Commands with Absolute Care: Slicing 50%/0%/0%/0%/70%/70%
