Would appreciate a translation or what this means on these two late war swords.

 

Thanks

The wooden tag has the name and address, presumably of the owner, written on it. The paper labels are too far gone for me to read, but it might just be a further refinement of the address (it looks like a street address). 

 

The wooden tag says 

講武村大字商囗囗

Kōbumura Ōaza Shō...(illegible after that)

Kōbumura was a city in Shimane Prefecture, now absorbed into Matsue city.

 

宮廻蔵次郎

Miyazako Kurajirō - name of the owner.
