Toyokuni Shrine

Toyokuni Shrine Goshuin– Toyokuni Jinja – 豊国神社 –

Kyoto (京都) – June 17, 2017


Toyokuni Shrine was built in Kyoto in 1599 to commemorate Toyotomi Hideyoshi. It’s a shrine in the Higashiyama area of Kyoto.

It houses the blade Honebami, a blade that was once a naginata blade but later became a wakizashi. It has also been made into a character in a game called Touken Ranbu. I play Touken Ranbu, so I was excited about visiting one of the swords for the first time. There are also various goods available at the shrine with Honebami on them.

I was in Kyoto for the June Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Taikai. The hotel for the event is Hotel Tozankaku and Toyokuni Shrine is nearby. I recommend going here if you’re interested in historic swords.

This goshuin is in my Inuyama Castle Goshuincho.
