Hakuto Shrine白兎神社


This ancient shrine is dedicated to the Japanese mythology “Inaba White Rabbit,” which is mentioned in the Kojiki, Japan’s Records of Ancient Matters. It is near Hakuto Beach in Tottori City, Tottori Prefecture. It is not clear when it was founded, but the current main building was reconstructed in 1896. Along the approach leading inside the shrine is Mitarashi Pond. Legends say that the deity Oku Ninushi instructed a rabbit whose fur had been torn by ferocious sharks to wash itself in the pond. Due to this legend, it is said that this shrine can heal skin ailments and burns, as well as provide good luck for marriages, among other benefits.

Can visit on the way if it’s on your route! Rabbits are cute and the shrine is traditional. Take only around 10-15 mins walk around.
