The Jinnō Shōtōki states that during the reign of Sujin, he had a copy of the Sacred Sword and Mirror made. They were entrusted into the care of Toyosukiiribime who built a sacred enclosure in Kasanui in Yamato to worship them in. Later she was instructed by Amaterasu to journey the provinces with the Sword and Mirror.3
