This great cedar was already two thousand years old when the Kami War began. It was the embodied spirit of the magnificent Jukai Forest, and its trunk and limbs were strung with "shimenwa" ropes (lengths of laid rice straw or hemp rope used for ritual purification) and "shide" (zigzagged stripes of paper) to mark its sacredness and the presence of the great kami inside it.
