In the 60,000 Tsubo land (1 Tsubo = 3.3m2) is a Okusu (great camphor tree) that has stood for over 1000 years. The Homotsu-kan is past the Okusu and 6000 or so offerings for the gods are gathered there from all across the country,of which 170 or so are registered as important cultural property of Japan and of Aichi Prefecture.
Seeing the various offerings left by the leaders of the country since the Jomon-era and the famous treasures such as rhe Koshinhourui (Sacred Treasures),the 12 Buraku masks and the Hokke-kyo goods stored in the Homotsu-kan will make you feel the weight of its history.
About 60 festivals and 10 Special Shinto rituals are held here every year. The most famous festival is the Atsuta Festival,held on the 5th of June,and the Emperor sends an imperial envoy to participate.
