Title  :  Sacred forest connecting to japanese mythological age – Atsuta Shrine - 

Atsuta Shrine is located on Atsuta-ku, Nagoya, Aichi prefecture in Japan and is one of the shinto shrines that guards Japan.
Creation of Atsuta Shrine begins with the enshrinement of Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi(草薙神剣) in this shrine.  Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, the ancient sword that is considered one of the Three Sacred Treasures of Japan, is known as a sacred sword owned by Yamato Takeru-no-mikoto, one of the japanese gods.  After the death of Yamato Takeru-no-mikoto, his wife enshrined this sacred sword in Atsuta.  Since then, Atsuta Shrine has been familiar to many japanese as a precious shrine for ranking to the grand shrine of Ise.
