|Glossary of Shinto|
Ōyamazumi Shrine (大山祇神社 Ōyamazumi Jinja) is located on the island of Ōmishima in the Seto Inland Sea. The shrine is dedicated to the gods who protect sailors and soldiers. Because of this, many daimyōs and other military leaders have made offerings at the shrine in hopes of military success, or in thanks for victory in battle. The offerings of swords, armor, and other military equipment are now housed in the largest museum of fighting equipment used during the age of the samurai in Japan. There are items housed in the shrine which belonged to Tomoe Gozen, Minamoto no Yoritomo, founder of the Kamakura Bakufu and first shōgun, and to his younger brother, Minamoto no Yoshitsune.
