Hello.  I am asking for help from those of you who may read Japanese translating the kanji on both sides of the blade on a sword I own.  

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Matt,

 

Kasuga Daimyôjin (春日大明神): The numinous unit of the associated kami and buddhas/bodhisattvas of the Kasuga-Kôfukuji multiplex, Nara.

 

and

 

Hachiman Daibosatsu (八幡大菩薩): The god of archery and war incorporating both elements from shintô and Buddhism.

 

From an article by Markus Sesko on Sue Bizen horimono: https://markussesko....bizen-horimono/

 

I'm just off to look up "numinous".  :)

 

Best,

John
