The ┼Źdachi, known by its Japanese name meaning large/great sword or nodachi, known as the field sword, was one of the most popular swords used by Samurais in feudal Japan. The odachi is known for its length, which is of around 3 shaku (~91cm).

It was used by Samurais in battle toward the 14th and 15th century, after which it became obsolete due to its size. In fact, it's so big that the Samurai had to carry it on their back or had a servant carry it for them. Because of its magnificent appearance, it then became a custom to gift it to Shinto shrines, a building used for the safekeeping of sacred objects.
