Next, “Atsuta-Jingu” 【熱田神宮】is a place which is dedicated to the “Kusanagi-no-mitsurugi”
To explain this. The “Kusanagi-no-mitsurugi” (Grass-Cutter Sword) is one of the three Imperial Insignia of Japan. It was formerly called the “Ama-no-Murakumo-no-tsurugi” (Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven) and has been renamed to Kusanagi-no-tsurugi ever since. The sword represents virtues and valor of the Japanese.
In addition, you can see many “Katana”(Japanese sword) to which this shrine is also dedicated.
