After 30 years on the Chrysanthemum Throne, Emperor Akihito of Japan abdicated in 2019, April 30th. Being the first Japanese emperor to do so since 1817. During the ascension ceremony of his son crown prince Naruhito, there were 3 sacred relics that were passed to the new Emperor during the ritual. It symbolizes that the guardian of the relic is the true emperor of Japan. The relics, Yasakani-no-Magatama（ornamental stone) is enshrined at the imperial palace, the Yata-no-kagami (Mirror) is enshrined at Ise grand shrine, and the Amano-murakumo-no-tsurgi (sword) is enshrined at Atsuta Jingu. To find out what these relics are and where came from, we will have to go back in time, way back in time to the world of legends.
