Koube no Miya Yomo Shrine頭之宮四方神社
This shrine is affectionately referred to as “atama no miya-san” or “okashira-san” because of the benefits it is said to confer upon the upper parts of the body, particularly the head. According to legend, the skull of Karahashi Chujo Mitsumori was enshrined here in 1191. Many visit to pray for academic achievement, mercantile wisdom, healing for head injuries and illnesses, especially during exam season. The water of the “Koube fountain” close to the main building is said to grant wisdom, and the nearby “Koube stone” is said to heal illness. The closest station is Ouchiyama Station.

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.
