Additional Information

Introduction

Atsuta Jingu is one of the oldest shrines in Japan, best known for its sacred sword Kusanagi-no-tsurugi (replica), a symbol of Imperial power. It is ranked second only to the Grand Shrine of Ise and is one of Japan's three great shrines. The main hall of Atsuta Jingu enshrines the "Five Great Gods of Atsuta", including Yamatotakeru-no-Mikoto, Miyasuhime-no-Mikoto, Amaterasu-Oomikami, Susanoo-no-Mikoto, and Takeinadane-no-Mikoto, all of whom have been highly regarded throughout Japanese history and are worshipped by the people. Generations of Japanese rulers have used various forms to express their respect for the shrine, with Toyotomi Hideoyoshi and Tokgawa Ieyasu both having supported extensive repair work on the shrine. In recent years, the Emperor and Empress of Japan have also visited the site.
