I bet most of you imagine we have a wedding ceremony in resort facilities in Hokkaido or Okinawa, when asking about a wedding in Japan.
In fact, I see so many people search for Japanese wedding with the words, ‘Okinawa wedding’ or ‘Tokyo wedding’ who visit our website.
Nihonto is originally the name foreigners from overseas call the swords.
We used to call it ‘nihonto’ too, but in fact, it’s been called ‘katana’ or ‘tsurugi’, instead of ‘nihonto’, in Japan.
As you can see, almost all shrines in Japan have a torii at the entrances, which has various meanings behind it. A Shinto shrine is the sacred place where the Japanese God resides.
The ‘Torii’ represents a boundary that divides the Gods’ place and our human world.
