Articles housed in the Treasre Hall
The Atsuta Jingu Museum houses about 4,000 articles donated by the people ranging widely in class from the Imperial Family, shoguns (generalissimo) and feudal lords to common persons. Among these materials, especially important are the koshinpoh (sacred garments, furniture and utensils for use of the enshrined deities), the swords, the hang mirrors, the Bugaku (ancient court dance) masks, the ancient documents and the household articles, 174 items of which have been designated or Aichi Prefecture important cultural assets.
In addition, it is noticeable that a large number of swords and daggers were contributed to the shrine, thanks to the legend that the sword named Kusanagi-no-tsurugi, one of the three sacred treasures of the Imperial House has been kept, in it. For that reason, the shrine is called the house of noted swords.
These treasures are exhibited by turns in the Hall for showing to the public. The articles on display are exchanged every month. We confidently hope that they will help you appreciate the deep faith people have had in the shrine as well as its long history.
