In Japanese mythology, Futsunushi (経津主神 Futsunushi no kami) is a kami of swords, thus his Shinto priests are supposed to always wear Nihontō with them, at least in the shrine. He is a general for Amaterasu. He is enshrined at both the Katori Shrine and the Isonokami Shrine, and as he is seen as a god of martial arts. Katori Shintō-ryū adepts make a solemn oath when they join the school.
