Kashima Jingu <鹿島神宮>
This Omamori is from Kashima shrine which is dedicated to Takemikazuchi-no-Okami who is one of the deities of martial arts, especially Kendo and Kenjutsu. In Japanese mythology, Takemikazuchi-no-Okami is able to sit on Kensaki (the tip of Katana Swords) and shows his strength to other deities. The first Tokugawa shogun, Ieyasu also had faith in Takemikazuchi-no-Okami and built Oku Miya (a small wooden worship hall) to thank for his help defeating many battles.
