Shrine

This Shinto shrine’s principal object of worship is a figure of a white snack considered one of the Three Goddesses of Toba. The Shrine is popularly known as “Hikotaki-san.” A lovely river flows alongside the approach to the shrine and continues on into its grounds. Past the torii gate lie the upper reaches of the clear stream, and an elegant sacred rope hangs over its waters. The shrine is believed to grant benefits such as alleviating women’s ailments and safe childbirth.

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.
