  • It is a small shrine which is dedicated to Sukunahikona no Mikoto. I passed by this place on the way back from Daisho-in to the ferry terminal. The red-painted Torii gate is vivid.  more »
  • A lovely structure in a beautiful surrounding. It's great walking around this shrine especially when there are few people about.  more »
  • Little cute shrine ! On the door there is a note that says : please close the door when you leave , otherwise deer will enter the shrine ! So please remember to close the door ! Lol
  • A small shrine along the slope "Takikoji" running in front of daiseiin. Since the glass sliding door of the company is always put away so that deer do not enter, if you want to please the change, you may want to open the door and pray. The god of the festival was a friend of the great power lord's life, the dwarf god "Shohiko Meito (Sukuna Hiko-mikoto)". It is also a model of one dimensionmaster, and God who brings benefits such as the shokusan industry. It is said that he visited the Land of the Great Powers by riding the Amano-No-Ma-bune (Amenokagaminofune) from beyond the waves. It is considered to be the child of kamimusubi-no-kami in the Shohiko Meimei Kojiki, and it is said to be the child of Takami-mushinokami (Takami-mushi-no-kami) in the Nihon Shoki. The three pillars of Kamimusumi, Takamimusumi, and Tenno-gochu-no-Jin (Ame no Mina-Kanushi) are the creation gods of the opening of the heavens and the earth, and the transcendental God called the Three Gods of Creation.
