The 'Goshintai' (main object of worship in a Shinto shrine) of Shakujii Shrine in Shakujii-cho, Nerima Ward is the stone sword (Ishikami). It is said that when a villager was digging a well, he uncovered a sacred stone with a shape of stone sword, it was enshrined as Ishikami (stone deity), thus giving the location its name ("shaku" is written using the character for "stone").
