Shinmei-jinja Shrine (Ishigami-san)神明神社(石神さん)


A Shinto shrine located in Osatsu Town, famous for its ama female divers and fisherman. The small Shinto shrine located on the approach to the main shrine is locally known as “Ishigami-san.” The shrine is dedicated to the goddess Tamayori-hime. Since ancient times, ama female divers have come to the shrine to pray for safety and large catches. Due to this association, legend has it that the shrine will grant one wish to any woman who prays here. Women from all over the country come to visit the shrine. There is a shop and café housed inside a remodeled private home along the approach to the shrine which sells handmade tokoroten jelly noodles and souvenirs.

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
