This shrine is located in Enamishimohada, Minami Awaji City. Izanagi-no-Mikoto and Izanami-no-Mikoto are the enshrined deities. It's been honored from ancient times as the sacred place in Japanese mythology where the two deities descended to the earth and created the nation. Worshiping there is thought to aid marriage and safe delivery of children. The shrine's 21.7-meter-tall vermillion-lacquered torii gate was built in 1982. A rare pine tree beside it called the Sanko-no-Matsu has three needles in each bunch that are considered a fortune symbol.

Hyogo Main Areas
Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
