Futsu-no-mitama (布都御魂) is a kami in Shinto and also a Sword.[1]This sword is the main dedication (goshintai) kept at Isonokami Shrine.[2]

He is the sword of Takemikazuchi.[1]

His other names include Saji-futsu-no-kami (佐士布都神), and Mika-futsu no kami (甕布都神).[1]

The sword aided Emperor Jimmu in his subjugation of the east. At Kumano, the Emperor and his troops were either struck unconscious by the appearance of a bear (Kojiki)[2][1] or severely debilitated by the poison fumes spewed out by local gods (Nihon Shoki).[3][4]

But a man named Takakuraji [ja; draft] presented a gift of a sword, the emperor awoke, and without him hardly brandishing this weapon, the evil deities of Kumano were spontaneously cut down. When Jimmu inquired, Takkuraji explained that he had a vision in a dream where the supreme deities Amaterasu and Takamusubi were about to command Takemikazuchi to descend to earth once again to pacify the lands, this time to assist the emperor. However, Takemizuchi replied that it would be sufficient to send down the sword he used during his campaigns, and, boring a hole through Takakuraji's storehouse, deposited the sword, bidding the man to present it to Emperor Jimmu.[1]
