HISTORY

Aizuchi Shrine has a long history. It says “When Yasutsuna was forging a sword, a spirit came and forged it together. That is why this place began to be called Aizuchi Shrine(Ai = together, zuchi = forge).” (quoted by Shrine’s legend)

 This shrine is a place that Yasutsuna and U kaminotama(the name of this shrine’s spirit) forged the National-Treasure swords, “Dojigiri- Yasutuna”, “Onikiri(Higekiri)” and “Hizamaru”. According to the history of the swords, for about a thousand years, Ukaminotama has protected the daily lives of Shinto-parishoners, and it has been believed by many people.

Also, the shrine has been maintained for a long time thanks to their strong faith.

Onikiri(Higekiri) Kitano Tenmangu Shrine Collection

” Yamanoi”well, alias “Fujikii”well

 It is said that the water of this well was used when a sword worker, Sanjo-Kokaji-Munechika, cut blade. This well is one of Yawata Gosui (five famous springs in Yawata). In the 9th year of Genroku(AC1696), Goto Shozaburo Yoshiharu(Director of the Edo Shogunate) had the well curb and the paving stones refurbished at his expense.

 The well is filled with water, and has never dried up before. It is regularly cleaned by all the Shinto-parishoners there.
